Grab a river boat and visit this lovely Wat. You can combine it with other drop off points along the river. If you have any problems you can always grab a taxi. The drivers are normally good and do not try to trick you.

We arrived at Wat Arun across the river. It's just an incredible experience and can't be put in words. Spiritual. A must for any visitor to BKK.
