About Wat Arun in Bangkok

Wat Arun, a beautiful and popular tourist hot spot of Bangkok, is much famed for its religious significance. It is located alongside the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok. Wat Arun Bangkok is also known as Wat Chaeng by the locals and is set against one of the most scenic views on the Thonburi bank of the Chao Phraya River. Being such a huge tourist hotspot, Wat Arun is also quite accessible by rivers and roads alike. The temple is lit by traditional lanterns every night, which makes for a uniquely soulful experience.

The Wat Arun temple has been a fascinating tourist spot for many generations. The temple’s spire is over seventy meters high and the superb craftsmanship of the temple itself is one to behold. The spire itself is decorated with shards of colored glass and Chinese porcelain to form delicate, surreal patterns. The shuttle boat ride across the Chao Phraya River is one of the most epic things to do here and it is located opposite to Wat Pho, which is another remarkable Buddhist temple.

Wat Arun temple Bangkok is most famously known for its golden Buddha image and the countless murals along its wall. It once housed the Emerald Buddha, which was later relocated to the Grand Palace. Despite being a tourist hotspot, it is important to remember that Wat Arun is also a religious site that holds deep significance to Thai Buddhists, and hence one should dress accordingly.

    • Trip to Bangkok

      It was the first time I booked the package with travel triangle and the agent "Kingdom of Holdiays". Overall the trip was great. 1. The hotels were the best in Phuket, Krabi and Bangkok, but in Pattaya, it was worst. I wish the agent had recommended a better hotel there. 2. The private cabs which were allotted were good. 3. The itinerary was chosen by me and was executed by the agent well. 4. In Pattaya alone, a cab was not given as per the voucher. We faced so much difficulty in commuting. I wish the agent had recommended properly on this. 5. The agent had told me that there was no need to give island fee in 4 island tour and phi-phi tour, but in both places, I paid it. This was an extra expense. Apart from pattaya and island fee, everything went well. Thank you for an amazing trip "Travel Triangle" and "Kingdom of Holidays". Hope i get refund of island fee i paid.

      This is the second time I was booking my trip wit travel triangle... This time I was heavy disappointed wit their service... Firstly they didn't create any group as they usually do.. They kept us at the mercy of the drivers... V didn't get any info abt our nxt prog unless u call n ask our agent in India... In our bangkok itinerary it was mentioned as 2 temple tour but they showed only one temple n skiped another one saying itz raining, itz far n traffic jam..... It was not properly coordinated btw hotel pple, travel I charge etc... V were always in dark abt our nxt prog.... Iam highly disappointed......i vl not cme bck to travel triangle again...

      We came to know about Travel Triangle through ads on facebook. It was the first time we availed services of Travel Triangle. It was for a trip to Thailand - Phuket, Pattaya and Bnagkok. *Pre Trip Services /Travel Triangle* On enquiry for quote for this trip we were expecting a single travel agent to give us quote but we were actually flooded with multiple quotes by multiple vendors of Travel Triangle. Advantage was that it made quotes comptetive to choose from. Disadvantage was multiple calls, mails, follow ups by several vendors made it irritating at one point. Finally we chose Delonix Travels. It provided decent quote but hurried up for payments. 100% payment was made in July for a trip in October citing it was a rule. But vouchers were given to us just 2 days before trip which actually scared us and made us follow them up repeatedly. Finally when the vouchers came just 2 days before the trip it had changes from the original itenerary which we were neither informed earlier nor did we have time to get it changed to original one just 2 days before trip. During the trip Despite our request neither the local travel agent nor Delonix nor Travel Triangle could help us, so that upset our plans and schedules. Also the chain system is so long that there is no single point or person to address all issues and everyone keeps asking to request this to other person. Ground support was via Whatsapp group but a first person responsible at the local site in Thailand would have been better like other travel agents normally have. Anyways, the support in Phuket particularly by Sayan Roy over whatsapp was really good. For Pattaya and Bangkok the support could have been much better. It is suggested to ask the vendors to not make so many follow ups just after sending quote. Also it is strongly suggested that when full payments are being taken so many months before trip then at least share all vouchers at least 10 days before trip that too without any last moment changes. *Hotels* Centara Marine Resort in Phuket was awesome. Huge premises with all facilities, prompt services, great rooms, good location and decent breakfast. Sunbeam Hotel in Pattaya was also Good in terms of room, services, location and breakfast. However, Woraburi Sukhumvit Hotel of Bangkok was poor in terms of room quality and services but breakfast and location was Ok. *Itenerary, activities and conveyances* Good itenerary. Handsome inclusions. Sightseeing coverage, activities coverage and time management was excellent. The Local tie up travel agents were good in their services. There was no dedicated tour guide in any location so at times we felt need of it but still it was well managed overall. As regards transfers, comfort level was good. Inland transfer in decent cars and speed boats. Thai Airways as Airlines was very good. *Food* Breakfast were included in Hotel and were decent. We had some of the Lunch included too in itenerary. Overall it was decent. Best lunch was in the day when we had Coral Island tour in Pattaya. Worst lunch was in James Bond island tour in Phuket, which most of the co-travellers were also complaining about. *Pricing* Cannot complain on pricing. The inclusions and quality at this price was the biggest plus point of the tour with Travel Triangle /Delonix. *Overall Experience* Satisfactory. Mixed of good and bad as stated above in details along with suggestions. Thanks. Phuket was the best part. Sayan Roy was good at coordinating things.

      Our trip to Thailand was good and was planned by travel empire Mr Akash planned it well for us. In Thailand mr Rahul Khatana was our trip coordinator Must say he planned and organised everything so well and perfect Mr Shubham Pandya from travel triangle was our trip advisor who’s behaviour was not too good His response was poor and in fact he never would pick up our calls and had always lame excuses Before leaving for the vacation. We were a bit scared what if we face any problem and mr Shubham Pandey will not pick up the phone? Bangkok and Pattaya both are beautiful places

    • Trip to Bangkok

      About the overall trip, it good except 3 points, 1)the Bangkok city tour:- While preparing the Itinerary agent mentioned only golden buddha tour. On that, I specifically asked him about the details over call, on that he replied its organized tour so mostly all points will be covered. So, I thought its ok and asked him to add details, on that he added 2 more destinations 1 gemstone gallery and another temple. If you want to go to another country, then we expect not all but at least all the main tourist places to see. But as my Itinerary it was not there. we missed all the main points. I asked the cab driver to drop me at last temple and from there I went on my own and visited the remaining places which coasted me almost 2000 THB. the only good place was in the city tour was Golden Buddha rest all useless. When contacted agent he straight forward refused as he doesn't remember his commitment. So, my suggestion to get everything in writing don’t believe everything they say . 2) Any upgrade u need is very costly.:- In my itinerary, it was mentioned longboat for island tours. On the third island tour, I thought to get that upgraded to Speed boat as there was not much difference when I enquired locally. It was hardly 250THB per person but when I checked with local coordinator, they were asking me 800TBH per person and speed boat package itself was for 1250THB . 3)Cab drivers could not speak English. Even its mentioned English-speaking drivers. Now Good part:- Co-ordination and communication was up to the mark never faced any issue. Whenever contacted on whats app got immidiate reply.

    No, photography is strictly prohibited anywhere in the temple complex.

     

    No, but anyone can take the stairs to the mid-level of the pagoda for a great view of Chao Phraya, Grand Palace, and Wat Pho.

     

    The best time to visit Wat Arun is in the early morning before the crowds arrive for a peaceful visit. But for the best views, sunset is the ideal time to visit.
