Many things in Thailand are ornate. The devotion, skill and creativity inside this 'walk in elephant' exceed many I have seen. We discovered many Thai people are too shy to try speaking up on buses when hearing our destination enquiries. However every time we were helped discretely often by people just about to get off. The gardens outside this magnificent... More

Erawan Museum is on the outskirts of the city. Take the eastbound BTS (skytrain). The extension of BTS currently under construction will take it very close to Erawan Museum. Now however the last station is Bearing from which you need a taxi, cost 60-70 baht. Don't drive/taxi from the city-centre, the traffic is awful. Walk in through the gate, buy... More

In order to get here you need to go all the way to Boering BTS station and from there take a bus or a taxi. It is a long way there and when you arrive the ticket may sound pricey, but once you in merge in the spirituality of this place all that will sound foolish. Prepare yourself for a... More

Really nice place , we got there early in morning before the crowds arrived . It cost me 400 baht and my wife who is Thai 200 which is a bit annoying . The best way to get there is sky train to bearing and than jump in a Taxi .

We visited here in the morning before heading to ancient Siam (meung boran). Very is easy to get there just ride BTS to Bearing which is the last stop. And then hail a taxi for rest of way ( they are extending the BTS and it seems to run right past the entrance so this will remove the need for... More

A lovely temple with a terrific history. The work that has gone here, down to the very smallest of details is truly unique. A beautiful place to stop and relax or read all the history in this fascinating place.

As we entered we got the guide tapes with head phones to get aware of the beautiful temple and surroundings. Itwas a very peaceful place and also not much crowded. The ceiling of the temple is beautifully made with the recycled and reused materials of glass items. Also the pillars, ceilings are made of soup bowls ,soup spoons ,plates etc.There... More

Elephant is the Thai national animal so once you are here in Bangkok, this museum also the must visit place. If you visited the Grand palace, temples and boat trip and still have a day left, I fully advise you to visit this place. The architecture is amazing, the garden is really pretty. If you want to pray respect to... More

Beautiful temple and grounds just outside of Bangkok in Samut Prakan. Not nearly as vast nor as crowded as other Bangkok tourist landmarks, but just as beautiful in terms of visual and cultural interest. Well worth a few hours, and drive from central Bangkok. Admission surcharge for foreigners is double the fee for Thai nationals -- annoying, but still a... More

If you come here expecting art museum kind of experience, then you'll likely be disappointed. But if you understand that this is a temple-like place built by a rich man with his own interpretation of art/religion, then you'll likely enjoy the visit despite the 400 baht entrance fee and out of town location. For me, I really enjoyed the opulence... More
