The dress code is VERY strict.
Wat Pho is beautiful and is definitely up there on the list of things to do in Bangkok. It is an 80,000-square-meter complex that holds many records; it is the oldest and largest monastery in the Thai capital, was the birthplace of the city’s first university, houses the largest reclining Buddha and contains more Buddha images than any Thai temple. Go early in the morning so you won’t find crowds.
Passeggia Nel Wat Arun
Wat Arun is architecturally the best temple in Bangkok, in my opinion. It is absolutely beautiful. It stands proudly and dominates the banks of the Chao Phraya River. Admission is 50 baht per person and is open from 8:30 to 5:30, often I think it is best to visit after 3.
Tempio Del Monte D’Oro (Wat Saket)
This is what can be described as a “hilltop” temple in town that has a variety of bells to ring on the road for luck. Admission is 20 baht (50 pence) and you climb the many stairs to receive a stunning panoramic view of Bangkok and its incredible skyline.
Wat Phra Kaew
Wat Phra Kaew (also known as the Temple of the Emerald Buddha) is probably the most important Buddhist temple in Thailand; however, it is not a Buddhist monastery in that neither monks nor nuns use the temple complex as their residence or primary place of congregation.
Instead, Wat Phra Kaew was once the private chapel of Thailand’s kings and members of the court. Photos inside are strictly forbidden; there are special guards who monitor tourists.
