  • After we were left behind by a tuk tuk tour at a temple (our driver was just him lubricated, we had not yet paid), are we but go walk looking for the royal palace and the Buddha are. By accident we walked along the giant swing. It's nice to see, it is somewhere in the middle on a kind of busier roundabout. You would look so walking by if you didn't know better and no map at hand with certain sightseeing there. Nice to see not really worth it.

  • This is a very holy place, but appropriate for respectful visitors. If you do stop by, take a minute to learn a bit about the history of the Swing, and of Bangkok itself. This will greatly enhance your appreciation of the place.
  • A big temple. Come if you have time and check it out. Worth seeing it.
  • Sao-Ching-Cha
  • Eye catching gigantic swing located in front of a magnificent temple Wat Suthat. I wish this swing can be used lol XD
  • Very hot in the afternoon, but also a must visit place around Grand Palace. So many doves here. You also can go to the Wat near The Giant Swing, it takes 50 baht.
