- The old Chinese cemetery is big. A few ornate shrines and plenty of sporting areas make this a unique cemetery to visit. The forest is literally growing on and around the tombs. It’s really a nice green space in the city. Avoid the surrounding water basin around the southern edges of the cemetery the water smells pretty bad and mosquitos are enormous. Nice place to walk and chill. Plenty of spots to sit, relax and just be.
For a special treat visit the Muslim cemetery to the north of the Chinese cemetery too... but try and plan being there at noon to enjoy the call to prayer echoing from the mosque next door. The
Acoustics are amazing.
It’s beautifully serene.

- A cemetery may not seem an obvious recommendation for an outing but this place is full of history from young seafarers who never made it back home to long-stay expats involved with the development of Siam in decades/centuries past and well known enough to have an entry in Wikipedia. A walk around the well-kept grounds, reading the stories on the headstones, makes for an interesting visit leading to discussion about what more may lie behind the brief inscriptions.
Although nominally a Protestant cemetery, we observed a reference to the Virgin Mary, so assumed that Catholics are interred here also. There are certainly Jewish interments as the Shield of David is present on several tombstones.
The cemetery is located on river frontage between a multistorey condominium on one side and a derelict building on the other. It looks like an area of prime river frontage for development, so it would be good to see the profile of the Bangkok Protestant Cemetery raised to ensure its survival into the future. I recommend a visit for a bit of history of foreign involvement with Thailand and out of respect for those who found their last resting place here.Written December 14, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- While walking to Wat Pho I happen to come across Wat Ratchabopit Sathit Mahasimaram. Some parts of the place is under renovation but the garden area is really well taken care of. But it's a peaceful place to visit.Written December 5, 2017This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- A huge complex with a couple of eye-catching edifices make this place worth a stop. Easy enough to do as it is directly on the Golden Mount, Democracy Monument and canal boat to Jim Thompson House Circuit. Still it is hard to get excited by wats. In Bangkok they are like flies, Wat Saket excepted.Written November 26, 2019
