Beautiful white marble temple. We visited as part of a tour and it was lovely to see. Much better with a guide who can explain the history and meanings of the various artifacts.

Look closer at the building and question the style, materials and placement used. This is an interesting blend of East and West.

We spent a lovely day wondering around temples and ended up visiting this lovely marble one, and had such a great time. A real escape from the city chaos,the traffic and the noise.

The temple is one of the best religious places I've ever visited. Its main buildings are made of white elegant marble imported from Italy. It's small enough to explore but very photogenic. It is one of the least known temples even though it is featured...More

This temple is well-worth a visit despite its location. We visited in the late afternoon, following a rain and the wet marble glistened in the sunset.

I was disappointed with what I saw. Although neat, clean, and attractive, it does not in any way compare to the other stunning Wats in Bangkok. There are so many, and part of the excitement is to discover them on your own. Use the rail...More

The Renaissance-style buildings and leafy gardens
wouldn't be out of place in an European capital, and
the serenity here is in stark contrast with the
chaotic city life outside of its complex walls. Dusit
is one of Bangkok's oldest districts, and while the
rest of Bangkok is modernising at a rapid pace, Dusit

Wat Ben is open daily from 8 AM to 6 PM and the admission fee is only THB 20. You can take BTS to Phaya Thai (exit 3) then take a taxi from there, but in my opinion, the most convenient way to travel there from Sukhumvit is... More
