Bangkok’s temples truly are awe-inspiring pieces of architecture. The intricate structures, the colours and the decorations are distinctive to Bangkok. However, keep in mind that these are not only tourist attractions but are sacred sights to Buddhists. Therefore, make sure to be respectful during your visits.
Even if you are staying at an apartment near Thonglor BTS, take the time to visit Wat Pho. Considered one of the oldest temples in Bangkok, this temple houses a 43-metre-long statue of Buddha.
Wat Phra Kaew
It is possible to spend half a day at this temple because there are so many things to explore. Since this temple closes at 3:30 pm, an early start is a must if you want to explore the mural paintings of the Ramayana. Therefore, make sure to have a quick breakfast and leave early while holidaying at a property such as Oakwood Residence Sukhumvit Thonglor Bangkok.
While this temple is commonly referred to as the ‘Temple of the Dawn’, it is best viewed in the evening. To get the best view, it is recommended that visitors climb up to the balcony of the main tower.
Built in 1900, the walls of this temple are encrusted in marble and are an iconic sight of Bangkok.
