If there is one thing that will leave you speechless in Bangkok, apart from the food, it is the amount of temples (or Wats) that are scattered throughout the city. If you have little time, you will have to choose which ones to visit in the bangkok city temple tour, and if you do not know where to start. We have prepared this list with the best temples in Bangkok:
It is one of our favorite temples in the world, since its location on the banks of the Chao Praya River, and its incredible 80-meter decorated with porcelain and crystals have enamored us. Get ready to climb the huge steps to enjoy good views of the city (although for us the best view is from the other side of the river, where you can see the “temple of dawn” in all its beauty, especially at first/last hour of the day).
It is another of the icons of Bangkok, not so much for neither its enclosure nor its architecture, but for what it guards inside: a huge statue of a reclining Buddha of 43 meters in length, and if after the visit your feet are tired, good news: at Wat Pho, there is a famous “massage school.”
If you are looking for a temple outside the tourist route, where you can admire the delicate and beautiful Buddhist rituals, this is perfect: Wat Suthat is one of the oldest and most charming in Bangkok. It is a curious place since right in front of it is the giant swing of Bangkok.
This beautiful temple is built in Italian marble (the famous white marble of Carrara), but this is not its only attraction: in its inner courtyard, you can admire 52 really beautiful Buddha statues.
This wat is very curious since it is located on an artificial hill of about 60 meters. It is crowned by a stupa that is reached after having climbed the 318 steps of the “golden” hill. Along the way, you can enjoy statues, small gardens, and bells that attract good luck.
