Wat Arun is an amazing temple inside and out. We visited just before sunset so it wasn’t as crowded as some of the other temples we had visited. Proper dress (long skirts, shoulders covered for women, long pants for men) is required. Although, it is...More

Locally made stainless steel products in Bangkok (11 Replies)
Many years ago we found a street on the other side of the Chao Phraya river (the side with Wat Arun) which had several local Thai makers of stainless steel products. Not just cutlery but ornaments, bowls, etc. Any idea of the address of this area?
