Before I went to Bangkok, I have prepared my itinerary and all information I could gather about it *well, it’s in my blood that I need to prepare everything before doing something big*. So, after several considerations, I decided to go to Wat Arun as the first place to visit in Bangkok!
Wat Arun, also known as the Temple of the Dawn, is one of the best known landmarks of Bangkok. From what I read here, the name Temple of the Dawn comes from the fact that the first light of morning reflects off the surface of the temple with a pearly iridescence.
Well, I felt like I didn’t spend enough time around Wat Arun (I spent only 1-hour). There are more to see around Wat Arun that I haven’t got the chance to explore. So, I suggest you can spare about 1.5 hours here to be able to get the best experience of Wat Arun and if you can wait till dusk to get the beautiful sunset view in Wat Arun, that’d be great. Wat Arun is open from 9.00 AM to 5.00 PM, so you can arrange your time to visit this beautiful landmark.
From Wat Arun, I continued my trip to Wat Saket. So, stick around to find out about Wat Saket, the Golden Mountain.
