Wat Arun Ratchawararam Ratchawaramahawihan
- (วัดอรุณราชวรารามราชวรมหาวิหาร). Wat Arun is among the best known of Thailand’s landmarks. The temple is so named because the first light of the morning reflects off the surface of the temple with pearly iridescenceAlthough the temple had existed since at least the seventeenth century, its distinctive prang (spires) were built in the early nineteenth century during the reign of King Rama II.
Wat Arun is located in the center of Bangkok. You can take a taxi boat to Wat Arun. This would be the most convenient instead of taking a taxi during rush hour. Traffic in Bangkok is one of the worse in the world. One recommendation about temples tour. You should get there early morning because it might get really hot after 11.00am and wear appropriate clothing. They are pretty concern about type of clothes when you enter into the temple, woman should wear long skirt and men should wear long pant, no flipflop! Appropriate outfit also cover most of the temple around the area that you would want to get included the Grand Palace.
