Wat Suthat, Bangkok

4.6
Take in the beautiful architecture of Wat Suthat. Angular marble pillars support colorful roofs with high gables, ornately decorated in the typical Bangkok style. Marble flagstones reflect the sky, and Buddha statues adorn the walls. Wander the tranquil grounds and see the 28 Chinese pagodas, representing the 28 Buddhas born on this earth. In front of the temple, admire the 30 m (98 ft) tall Giant Swing, formerly used in an old Brahmin ceremony. A royal temple of the first grade, it's construction began in 1807, at the behest of King Rama I, but it would not be completed until 1847, during the reign of King Rama III.

  • One of the most impressive temple complexes in Bangkok. We also stumbled upon some sort of ceremony with over 50 monks, which was pretty cool. 20thb entry. A short walk from the golden mountain
  • Another very big temples complex in Bangkok, quite interesting and a whole lot quieter than the "famous ones". The entry was 20 THB, which makes it a great value for money.
  • Shady & quiet . Just step into the door,you'll find a quiet place amidst the busy city.
  • This temple is just beautiful! Peaceful and quiet in the middle of busy Bangkok streets. Recommendation to see! Be careful about the scams tuk tuk drivers around the temples!
  • It's nice to have a rest before a Buddha. Sit down and meditate.

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.
