Tours and Tickets

The area
Neighborhood: Thong Lor & Ekamai
Known as Bangkok’s hippest neighbourhood, Thong Lor and Ekamai is where the city's well-dressed and well-heeled spend their nights sipping cocktails in hidden speakeasies and posh restaurants. Live it up in one of Thong Lor's extravagant clubs and be prepared to brush shoulders with a Thai celebrity or two. While great for a night out, the area is nothing short of interesting during the daytime, either. Expect a mix of savvy coffee shops, pop-up bars and loads of vintage stores, brought to you by hip locals with eyes for design.

Temple for Funeral
Jan 2021
We have been at Wat That Thong for funerals many times. The temple is near Ekamai BTS Station. There are many funeral rooms at the temple. Sometimes it is difficult to find parking. The main hall is nice. The area is clean. There is the Gateway Hall across the street.

Nice temple at Skytrain station
Dec 2017 • Family
This temple is well know amongst the Thai people for funeral purpose, but also for paying respect and wishing good luck for anniversaries or other occasions. Peaceful during the day time and busy in the evening.

Peaceful temple during the day time.

Wat That Thong is well organized for funerals. It is near Ekkamai BTS station. It is also near the Gateway mall. It is peaceful during the day time. It is busy in the evening. We went the temple for the late King Bhumibol’s ceremony on October 26, 2017.

Peaceful Temple Complex
May 2017 • Business
Beutiful temple of Buddha, with mirror mosaic tiles exterior, designer glass windows, beautiful thai architecture and windchimes. The crematorium is just beside! Even the deady body burning furnaces are enclosed in very beautiful structure. Just outside ekamai sky train station on sukhumvit road.

Quiet in Ekamai
Apr 2017 • Solo
Just outside the Ekamai BTS this is an area of comparative calm and is worth an hour of your time..

This Wat is used extensively for burial rites so be sensitive in your approach.

It is worth calling in to see the external decoration of the entrance and the main hall. The mail hall itself is also worth a visit with your shoes taken off of course.

Temple with a lovely glass mosaics
Nov 2015
The temples in this area have gorgeous glass mosaics on the outside of the buildings. There is also a funeral boat in one of the buildings. And a great drum in another.
