Wat Arun [Pier N8]
Bangkok Wat Arun

One of the most symbolic landmarks in Bangkok, the majestic prang (or Khmer style tower) of the Temple of Dawn dominates the skyline on the Nonthaburi bank of the Chao Phraya river. Construction on the prang first began in the reign of King Rama II (1809-1824) and was completed by King Rama III (1824-1851). The central tower is 76 meters high, is decorated by thousands of tiny seashells and pieces of Chinese porcelain and is protected by an array of demons and monkeys. Arun means morning and the temple is best viewed at dawn or sunset from the opposite river bank.

To get there: Take a ferry across the river to Tha Rue Wat Arun Pier. Ferries run from 5am-11pm the fee is 3 baht.
