  • Nice, quiet, less visited Wat near the royal residence. I really enjoyed the replica Buddha's with explanations (in English and Thai) regarding where and when they were from. Incredible detail and artistry can be found at this complex.
  • My favourite temple in Bangkok 🤍 The atmosphere here is always relaxing. I love the gallery of the Buddha statue replicas from all over Asia (Thai, Burmese, Khmer, Indian, Japanese, Chinese style). The gardens with drums, where anyone can feel the vibrations of the soul, are wonderful.
