22 things to doin Bangkok
The magnificent pagoda, elegantly decorated with porcelain, is quite difficult to get to – your reward will be a stunning panoramic view of Bangkok!
Temple of Dawn Wat Arun, Bangkok
Wat Arun is considered one of the most beautiful temples of Bangkok, in spite of its modest appearance. In contrast to other, no less popular temple complexes, at the Temple of Dawn you will not see many gold statues or expensive decorations. The great significance of Wat Arun for all Thais lies in its pagoda – a peaked tower, which is the highest one in Thailand.

Logically, the temple of Dawn is best to visit at dawn. After climbing to the top you will admire a bird's eye view of the surroundings. As soon as the city drops in dusk, floodlights illuminate the pagoda, and then you'll see it in all its glory, from a completely different perspective.

Entrance fee 50 baht.
