Such a serene place, and one where you watch and learn about Buddhism. Those who visited were most respectful, and the entire place was tranquil, and the statutes were beautiful.

Interesting site. But frankly, the shops in the neighborhood are more interesting are more interesting than Wat Suthat if you've already experienced the majors (Wat Arun, Wat Pho, Wat Saket, the Grand Palace). Still, if you've got the time then why not.

Still a Buddhist temple, impressive for every Western tourist. Prefer to visit the temple early due to a lot of people but also possible humidity and heat. In all the temples we take out shoes, we look with respect and we do not step on...More

Visited this site during my stay in Bangkok. Every single statue of Buddha has a specific meaning and refers to a determinate historical period. If you have a guide with you, you will get the best of this visit.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn

this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
