  • This old temple was founded in 1825. It is located in the WAT Kanlaya district in Thonburi on the banks of the Chao Phraya River

  • The larger temples of Bangkok have maybe more pomp and circumstance, but here it is quiet. You have time to make everything nice in you without to be overrun by tourists. Also the large seated Buddha is, of course, impressive.

  • my visit was very interesting. I was asked to visit the primary school attached to the Wat. It is similar to 80% of Thai schools; poor. Kids were wonderful and eager to learn. If you are in the area spend money there. So many tourists base the authenticity of their Thailand adventures on places like this. But dont give back to the community When you visit make a habit to buy something in these communities. Even if is just a bottle of water.
  • Wonderful temple. But we used the location to enter the khlong system, canals. The long-tailed boat trip was brilliant and worth the 350 baht each, sharing a boat will cost you even less and you don't have to talk to the other occupants. Great wildlife too, please buy a chaing beer from the old dear on the boat shop, it's a tad expensive but keeps that way of life going. Someone should really put a visitor tax on the canals or pressure on those with the powers of control, the canals need cleaning up and restoring, save the Bangkok canals, cripes sorry for that I got on my orange box for a moment there, I will refrain from having such outbursts in the future.
