  • Wat Botum is home to 800 monks and 400 students. The students are allowed to stay in the temple area to pay for water and electricity. Stunningly beautiful pagoda, which should be seen from the inside.

  • The Silver Pagoda is well worth a visit. It is in amongst lots of interesting buildings and a guide will give you a tour if you like. 
  • Along with the Royal Palace this is a good place to visit at the same time. Very enjoyable, clean and tidy. Very photogenic.
