Wat Bowonniwet Vihara, Bangkok

4.7
A little off the beaten path, Wat Bowonniwet Vihara allows you to experience the religious and cultural aspects of Thailand. In fact, even the King has spent some time in monkhood here. It is usually not crowded, so you can relax and take your time enjoying the peaceful atmosphere and fascinating architecture that the temple has to offer. Appreciate the intricate details and murals on the walls as well as the ornate golden Buddha statues. Entrance is free, but you will have to take your shoes off, as footwear is prohibited inside.
