The 10 Best Wats of Thailand
Thailand is a land teeming with temples, or wats, both ancient and modern. With roughly 40,000 of them dotting the landscape, sometimes it can be a little hard to discern one beautiful structure from the next. There are a few, however, that are so unique in their creativity and splendor that you just shouldn’t miss them.
Wat Arun has become somewhat synonymous with the Bangkok skyline thanks to its vibrant gold hue at night and Khmer style tower standing tall above the city’s Grand Palace—it’s pretty hard to miss. With a modest entry fee of only 50 baht, it’s an incredibly affordable pit stop on your way around one of the world’s most eclectic cities.
