4.7/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
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. Make Wat Bowonniwet Vihara a centerpiece of your Bangkok vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bangkok trip generator.

  • Yet again woth a visit but be sure to ask as to when to go as it can get very busy plus private too and escorted service recommended. 
  • Golden Buddha present at the centre of the Bangkok. Must to see and must to pray temple. Best place and important place to visit. Should wear full covered dress. 
  • This very old Temple has a lot of meaning to the Royal family as so many of them spent time there as monks. It is beautiful and well worth a visit. I got there on a tuk-tuk from the river.
