I've seen the Wat from across the river for years but waited until the restoration was complete to go for a visit. Very disappointing close up. The rehab work was shoddy and cheap (decorations on the stupa included grouted in tea saucers). It could have been great for the money they spent but was a real letdown.

Architectural icon of historic Bangkok on the Chao Phraya. Very worthy spot for taking nice photos and cultural explorations. One of Thailand's grand historical landmarks. The temple is most commonly accessed via boat stops along the river or can also be accessed car. Like most temples in Thailand and a common courtesy, visitors are strongly encouraged to dress modestly. All in all, the Wat Arun is a true sight to see when exploring the old Bangkok.

The temple is about 15 mins walk from Itsaraphap metro station. The entry fee is about 100bht and you must be dressed modestly. I would recommend going early before tour groups arrive and before it gets too hot as it will give you enough time to wander and enjoy the views.

Very nice place to check out. There are many temples in Bangkok to view, this one by the river has some differences. Cheap to get to and from, can access from the river for a very cheap boat ride. Lots of people taking pictures in traditional Thai clothes, it was nice to see all the history around.
