  • Majestic Temple just next to Sam Yan Train Station. Donation of coffins to the poor available here. 🙏🏻
  • Beautiful temple where you can make merit. Donations for the Ruamkatanyu Foundation.
  • Famous temple of Samyan-Silom area. People like to go to donate coffin.
  • Nowadays with the royal palace being reserved for paying respect to the late king of Thailand. This is a great alternative for anyone from other countries to get closer to an authentic Thai Buddhist temple. 40 baht entry ticket for tourists. The main hall is breathtaking, that alone is worth the small entry fee.
  • A Place when Death Body get peace. I go to Pray there often. Great place for Pray and Donate. If you donate money here, it'll go to A charity which take care for death bodies.

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.
