As we uses the Chao Phraya Express boat we have to use another boat to visit this place as it located at the west bank of Chao Phraya River. Entrance fee is 50THB and as we went there, the place is still under construction for improvements* hence, expects scaffolding everywhere.

Unfortunately the Temple is under construction at the moment so we couldn't climb to the top. The building is still incredible and different from everything I've seen so far. It's definitely a must

We went there thru Chao Phraya boat and it's very easy to access. Unfortunately, Wat Arun pagoda was under renovation that time, so we can't take nice photos of the pagoda. The other area is the temple is also nice.

Currently, the temple is covered in scaffolding which was a bit of let down. We paid 50THB for entry, but you can't enter the temple just walk around (may have been better to just take a photo from the outside or from the river). Also, if you're getting a long tail boat there is a 30THB "landing fee" which the boat driver probably won't pay or tell you about until you get there. My personal opinion is it's not worth visiting.
