While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to

Yes, the temple entry is free and devoid of crowds as it is in a secluded place. Very peaceful to spend an afternoon at the temple. Walk up to the fifth storey to enjoy awesome views of the city.
