Wat Bowonniwet Vihara, Bangkok

4.7
A little off the beaten path, Wat Bowonniwet Vihara allows you to experience the religious and cultural aspects of Thailand. In fact, even the King has spent some time in monkhood here. It is usually not crowded, so you can relax and take your time enjoying the peaceful atmosphere and fascinating architecture that the temple has to offer. Appreciate the intricate details and murals on the walls as well as the ornate golden Buddha statues. Entrance is free, but you will have to take your shoes off, as footwear is prohibited inside.

  • I had the immense good fortune to visit him while he was being held a ceremony of initiation of Buddhist monks let that with all the typical Thai friendliness. It is a beautiful and peaceful Wat u to amazing Golden stupa, and far from hordes of tourists. A great place to sit, watch, and breathe.

  • It is one of the most beautiful temples of Bangkok must wander through the aisles to find out treasures. This temple little frequented by tourists is to do.

  • Very close to Khaosan road and beautifully constructed. I went in the morning and the place was very serene. Thumbs up for the friendly staff too.
  • Beautiful puja, specially in this holy day, the 8th ir July.
  • Oasis of peace in the middle of big city. This monastery is such a calm and clean place, making you forget where you are. Often, you can see Buddhist monks taking lessons in some of the small rooms on the outer side of the monastery.
  • The staff there are really warmhearted and voluntary to be your guide. Do remember to donate some money for the maintenance of this beautiful temple
  • Very friendly monks and beautiful golden Buddha statues make this an excellent temple! :)

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
