There are a lot of Buddhist temples in Bangkok. Wat Suthat is not the most interesting one. The architectural style is quite similar to that of other major temples. It is also under renovation. Quite a walk from the pier, so skip if you don't...More

Very beautiful and unusual palace. We have been there with my wife, we both enjoyed it a lot. So many colorful sculptures and meaningful stories behind them.

We actually visited this temple by mistake! We asked the taxi driver to take us to Wat Sakat but he dropped us off here and we were very glad that he did. This temple is so peaceful - there were almost no other people visiting...More

The temple is lovely and so are the grounds. Lots of benches to relax in the shade. We visited on a very hot day and a lovely woman brought me a glass of ice water.

After viewing the other temples which were built on a grand scale, Wat Suthat was not as elaborate as was the others. We did learn that the Buddhas and Wats are cemetaries. Each family is respobsible for buidling and caring for the Buddha statue of...More

Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
