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 Thailand

      Don't take this feedback as a complaint but as a prompt feedback and suggestions to improve the services. The third point related to the service agent was not too poor but not good either hence 2 1/2 star would be appropriate ( I assume Travel agent and Trip advisor as two different individuals the latter one whom we initially contacted and better as far as he could in Handling the tour package Lack of communication and updates during the days of tour is an important lacunae in your otherwise a value for money of the packages that you provide: 1. The trip advisor mr. Vikas was prompt as far as he could 2. The hotel @ Bangkok expected to be having swimming pool that was initially discussed and assured, but later had to change on the day due to lack of the same in the hotel provided. Thank you for timely upgradation at extra cost, but it should have been revealed earlier of the lack of the swimming pool facility in your provided hotel 3. One major limitation: it were we who had to call repeatedly the agents for updates right from time of tour the facilities there, on the day of check out from Pattaya, it was me who had to call repeatedly on the day of departure, started from 7:30- 8-00 am, about the time .. the departure got delayed till 12.00 noon and hence had to miss that days tour to the city enroute that had to be shifted then to the last day. The travellers need to be informed prior, most times the calls were disconnected not picked 4. Day 4 tour to safari world was even more irritating as we were not informed no guide was there to inform for the place of lunch, got the lunch missed, later when asked the agents there it appeared as if it was my fault that I should have inquired from the fellow passengers on that day, who harldy interacted amongst themselves, It just takes 2 sentences of prior information even could have been done in the WhatsApp group Day 1 Alcazar show also had to be postponed due to lack of prior confirmed seats. The intention of the agent was Good we appreciate and could be done on the day 3 the frequent updates initiated from ur side could have eased the things Overall have to say All well that ends well But prompt communications and frequent updates of the schedule and any changes there in are areas that need to be addressed. Could recommend if this important domain gets redressal. You can assign this task to other subordinate staff if the agents are too busy in their work to pay heed to this imp domain of proper communication initiated from ur side Thank you for the decent trip You can avoid posting this on your web page but take a serious note of this for your betterment Best wishes

    • Trip to Thailand

      We had gone for our Honeymoon to Thailand ( Krabi and Phuket) for 7 days, 6 nights. I must say Prabhat Travels are true professionals when planning your Holiday. Each and every day we enjoyed a lot from the time we landed in Thailand. Naveen Rana and his team were simply too good with their work. I was a little skeptical when Naveen kept saying he has spent a lot of time in knowing Thailand and what is better for tourists. But come the tripx they acted as professionals in this field. It takes a lot of hard work to know the nitti gritty of Travel but Pabhat was simply outstanding. They create a WhatsApp group with you and they are always in touch. Don't carry ATM cards as Thailand will charge you simply 200 Baht as fee for each transaction. Better to take Cash but keep it safely. Tiger Cave temple in Krabi has 1000+ steps. it can take 4-5 hrs for this alone. Your travels will give only 1 hour for this temple which is absurd.

    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.
