  • Great temple that gets overshadowed by it’s more famous neighborhoods. I had a great meditation on the ground floor. Very quiet and not busy when I visited. They allowed full access to the temple. I climbed to the 4th floor the energy on the floor made the hair on my arms stand up it was amazing. The view from the top is great as well. This was one of my favorite temples in Bangkok
  • This Royal Pavilion is open for public with very impressive structures and details of the building. It isn't far from democracy monument. Better bring an umbrella and water coz the place is really Instagram worthy.
