Bangkok – Wat Arun

Just across the river from the Grand Palace and Wat Pho, is Wat Arun. (You can easily use a ferry to cross the river.) The Wat Arun temple is especially beautiful at sunset.

Wat Arun rises out of the river bank and turns a dazzling golden hue as the sun goes down.

Wat Arun looks pretty tall when your standing at the base.

This is how the building stays up. (Just kidding!)
