"Wat Arun" Temple of the Dawn - Wat Arun Tip by jrs1234
Temple of the Dawn - Wat Arun, Bangkok: 168 reviews and 331 photos
Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn) is an interesting place as its style is quite different to other temples, making it a real Bangkok landmark. While you can get a good view of it from the river, it's well worth viewing close up as there are lots of details to see.
It's quite a peaceful place as well, partly because it's on the other side of the river from the Grand Palace. You can get here easily by ferry (a bargain 2 baht!) from the Tha Tien pier on the river.
Open from 7am until 6pm daily, and there's a 20 baht entry fee.
Address: Tha Tien Pier, Chao Phraya River
Directions: From this pier take a cross river ferry (2 baht) to Wat Arun.
