Located on the opposite side (from most major sights/hotels) of the Chao Phraya River is this pleasant church. It is tucked away down an alley yet just steps from the river and nearby water taxi stop. The interior features an impressive barrel shaped roof with...More

I am a Catholic, and this is a Catholic church of course. It's one of the best experience I've had in BKK. The church is quite far away from city center, or from the shopping malls area, could cost you around 150-200 baht by taxi,...More

I think this church was a mix between portuguese and chinese. You can see both portuguese and chinese on the walls and statues. This church is a must visit if you want to immerse yourself in architectural design.

The Santa Cruz church is a complete hidden gem. It is a beautiful church that lies in interior Bangkok and is actually almost only accessible by foot through the small and winding ways around local homes. The church itself has great architecture and it is...More

We visited the Portuguese waterfront and nearby back alley area. The whole area is dripping with Portuguese history and it’s pretty evident if you look for it. We had back luck the day we tried to visit. The church was closed but even from the...More

Beautiful, with good history. With old houses surrounding it - most probably a Portuguese village - Portuguese egg tarts available for sales. Several schools besides and near it. Lovely reddish dome, and interiors
