      After going to the Grand Palace, this is the second temple that we’ve visited. Since our trip is a “Do Your Own” trip, we’re always carrying our maps with us. To get here, you can either hire a taxi or a tuktuk (tricycle). Since it’s near at the palace, we just get our feet up and walk, followed the map and ask people

      for the direction. You should then arrived at the dock station of the Chao Phraya River. Ride a small boat for 4 Baht and cross the river. It will then take you to Wat Arun temple or the Temple of Dawn.

      This temple is quite mysterious, it’s like travelling with Indiana Jones to a hidden and scary place. Unlike the golden Grand Palace, it’s ...


      • old and gloomy but the structures are absolutely unique. But for me, I find it more solemn than the vibrant grand palace. At the side, you’ll find a cemetery. Tho’ i couldn’t understand but i think it’s a monk’s cemetery.

        The temple is quite high. One can also enter inside, but to do that you need to climb a few steps. And an entrance

        fee of 20 Baht is needed beforehand. Ofcourse cameras were not allowed inside, you also need to remove your shoes upon entering. The sides of the temple also caters some interesting statues and other old structures.

        It’s a highly recommended place! The unique structure of the temple is one of a kind and a definite must-see! Love it! I’ll come back again next time.
