Wat Arun was super funny place to take photos. I really liked symmetry and little details. The price was fine only 50baht. Outside of the Wat Arun paid area is also beautiful park/temple area.
I was kind of dissappoindent that there were no entrance to upper parts of the building even though I understand why. The stairs are very steep and there are no any safety ropes railings.

One of temples you must see in Bangkok, you can see it across Chao Phraya. You cab get tuk tuk to Wang Lang market from this place.

We first visited in 1992 and loved it. The last couple of times we've been back the temple has been covered in scaffolding so we hadn't really seen it since then. We've just returned from Bangkok and managed to see it in all its glory.

Make sure you don't miss the temples and spires (not sure what the are called) right at the back. Most people seemed to not bother walking the extra few steps, which is their loss as it's so peaceful and beautiful

I would recommend trying to visit earlier reviews or later in the day to avoid the crowds but you must go, even if it's busy.

...but you don‘t need that much time. Just take the cheap ferry from Wat Pho and back - It won‘t take you more than an hour

A magnificent example of craftmanship. The many steps were very steep though and with no handrails it was a bit scary at times given there was some drizzle when we were there

This is one of the few locations we visited in Bangkok and this is definitely worth the trip! It's even better close to sunset as you will also have the night view. We took the boat (4BHT) to cross the river which is way cheaper than a tuk tuk

Peaceful and great temple but lot of commercial activity going around which spoils the beauty.
Boat trips operating from there by private operators which is not worth and should be avoided.

And to think I nearly gave this a miss! Just amazing, make sure you take a close look at the extaordinary amount of detail, and explore the nooks and crannies for some unexpected details. Best to go by Express boat, either early in the morning or late afternoon as the sun is setting.

It only takes a short while to take in Wat Arun but we are glad it was on our agenda while in Bangkok. The temple itself is striking and well worth crossing the river for from Wat Pho.
