I liked this temple; although, it's hardly spectacular. The view at the top of the main reason to visit. There are some good food vendors down below. Take the khlong taxi to get there.

Obviously temples proliferate in Bangkok - if you are picking which ones to see, this was my favourite. Not as much to see as others but very peaceful, with panoramic views of the city

Visit this temple for a great view of the city. Temple grounds are very peaceful and good for a nice relaxing moment in the hectic city.
