“Awesome experience !”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Must do once in bangkok. With amazing architecture you'll be amazed. Most interesting will be the stairs, very steep. So be carefull ! Also easy to access via crossing boat (3bath) one way if you are from grand palace. From the top of the temple u can take picture of grand palace.

“A climbing experience”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

You should make this a part of a canal tour by boat and you can visit it by stoping by. You need to be ready to climb up a very steep stair to the top of the temple. This will give you a nice view across the old town.

“nice experience”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Just at walking distance from Wat Pho, the place is really beautiful. The surprise package was a 2 min boat trip across the river to the temple. The best time is to visit after sunset. A MUST GO.
