A beautiful temple with beautiful surroundings! We hired a longtail boat and private guide - it was great! Would love to see it at dawn.
I think Temple of Dawn is the most attractive place in Bangkok. I was impressive by the magnificeness of this temple. It had many grand statues and a wonderful view from the top. But it is very crowded with many tourists. Anw, that is my wonderful experience. Highly recommend to anyone when visiting in Bangkok and remmember that your dress... More
We got done a bit on this one, but also learnt from it. The driver took us to the pier to catch a long boat ride up the river and to see the fish and a small floating market and then onto Wat Arun. Not the temple was certainly nice enough, but the fish, well I've seen and caught plenty... More
Well worth the short ferry journey. It is like stepping into the country - so calm. People suddenly appear very laid back, and wander about, enjoying life from the other side of the river. A highlight on our visist to Bangkok - would encourage anyone to go

We saved Wat Arun for last on our day of Wats and it was definitely our favorite place. The view from the top is breathtaking and it's a little less touristy than the Wat Pho and the Grand Palace. If you're on the older side, ascending and descending the stairs might be a challenge.
Wat Arun was the first stop on our Bangkok temple trek. After a 15 ride down the river, we reached the Arun complex and spent about an hour touring site. Arun itself is covered in statues, porticoes and thousands of intricate colored tiles but, don't leave without touring the surrounding temples and structures as well!
This thing is awesome. It is old, historic, and it has great views of the river and Bangkok from atop of it. Like most places in Bangkok, it is very crowded with tourists, but it is a fine attraction and worth checking out. Make sure you take the right ferry to get there (only costs 3 baht), versus the longtail... More
Located on the edge of the Chao Phraya River Wat Arun has the most perfect setting. The beautiful decoration and steep steps lead you to spectacular views up and down the river. Highly recommended to anyone visiting Bangkok! To get there take the Chao Phraya Express Boats to pier N8, Tha Tien, then take the cross river ferry to the... More
This was my favourite place that I visited in Thailand. Absolutely stunning and a fantastic view from the top. Make sure you dress appropriately though there are clothes on sale in the grounds if you forget. Be careful on the steps and don't forget your camera.
