Wat Arun, Bangkok

After we went to the Floating Market near Bangkok, our taxi driver took us to Wat Arun. I hadn't done much research on it, but the taxi driver said it was worth a look. The traffic was horrible getting there and I began to think that maybe we should just skip it. We finally made it, and I am so glad we did not skip it. It was so interesting and had beautiful views of the city from the top. We unfortunately didn't make it to the Grand Palace or to take a ride on the Chao Phraya, but more reason to go back to Thailand one day.

The main part of the Wat Arun was undergoing a bit of construction, but we were still able to climb up the steep stairs to the top. There were so many beautiful details, I spent some time examining it up close. The temples surrounding it were incredibly beautiful as well. Every square inch was made out of delicate, colorful stone. It is crazy to think of how many hours were put into creating such beauty.










Steepest stairs ever!


From far away, it just looked like grey rock. Up close, it was color and intricate.




Many people skip this site in Bangkok, because it is across the river and hard to get to, but I would definitely recommend going!



Linking up with Bonnie and Tina for Travel Tuesday!

  3. Although I realize that it's stone, that place looks so delicate and beautiful. The details are lovely. I especially love that it's on the waterway, it ties together the whole scene. I'm glad you guys didn't skip it either!

  4. Those temples are incredible! Definitely took countless hours to build. I wonder how long they've been there?
