This temple was located very close to Saphan Taksin BTS, less than 5 minutes on foot, and was uniquely beautiful. We were there while people was gathering to pour water on the monks on the second day of Songkran - such an amazing experience.

We got the SkyTrain here and walked along the river. The temple is a little different to the rest with its boat shape but still commands respect. It wasn't busy so we sat and prayed for a while.

A very old temple which was formerly a stable for buffaloes, it has a new metal structure over the top protecting it. Clearly in need of a lot of renovation there is not a lot to see from the outside. A concrete Chinese style junk...More

Wat Yannawa is near the Sathorn/Central Pier and near Saphan Taksin BTS station. It has beautiful roof. The pier has good views of the river. We spent about one hour there.

This is a temple that looks like a Chinese Fishing Junk and seems to be associated with prosperity and trade.....nearby is a monument to 108 Chinese (merchants or monks) who perished at sea (storm or pirates)....it is not clear but there is a memorial.

I do not believe there is a dress code. If there is one, it was not enforced. I wore a pair of shorts, a polo shirt with flip flops.
