Bangkok’s Jewels: All the Wats in The World (ok not the world)


If you can go to Tha Chang Pier and Tha Thien Pier(for Wat Arun), I am sure you can walk to all the wats which is on your place-to-visit list to Bangkok. Wat means temples.

There are four major wats around that pier, plenty of wats lying around as you walk: Wat Arun (temple of dawn), Wat Pho (temple of sleeping buddha), Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew (temple of jed buddha). Came to think of it, the monster and I couldn’t really remember how the wats look like (whattttt), and so even with photos of our own, we cant remember! (double whattttt)

p/s: the credits of these photos are not to me.

1. Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn)

I look at the photos in the net and gosh, i couldn’t at all capture what the eye can see!

You have to cross a river to Wat Arun from the rest of the wats.

2. Wat Pho  (Temple of Reclining Buddha)

It reminds me of the Sleeping Buddha in I saw in Penang. Coated in gold paint, the enormous buddha lying peacefully with side reclined body. Except that the face of Buddha in Wat Pho is not painted with colors.

Magnificent isn’t it from the outside?

3. Grand Palace

Such a beautiful place and guarded by tall white walls for at least 3 meters high. Too bad that time the place is closed down.

4. Wat Phra Kaew (The Emerald Buddha Temple)

Wat Phra Kaew and Grand Palace are on the same road. Anyhow, there’s all nearby wats around. And also street seller which sell jed stones, buddha statues, necklaces and et cetera.

But we never tried going there at night. Heard the views are awesome!
