"" Bangkok Favorite Tip by Krystynn

Bangkok General: 632 reviews and 858 photos

Fondest memory: Buddhism is the main religion here in Thailand. And it is no surprise that wherever I go, whichever street corner I turned to - temples, temples and more temples greeted me! Every household also seems to have this miniature spiritual house planted just outside their main door. I don't know what is the exact name for this... maybe someone can let me know?

<b>Pic Below: The regal splendor of the Wat Arun Temple (Temple of Dawn)</b>....

It is a major riverside landmark and a religious shrine. The chief attraction here would most certainly be the magnificent 74 meter high <b>Phra Pang tower</b>. Decorated with glazed ceramic pieces, the temple literally shimmers in the sun.

The best way to conquer Wat Arun is to hire a boat from the <b>Tha Tien pier</b> near the Grand Palace.
