We had the pleasure of visiting the stunning Wat Arun, or Temple of Dawn, in Bangkok. We began our journey by riding canoes similar to a gondola, and rode through Thailand’s own canals. One of the unique highlights of this experience was being approached by several floating market people who hoped to sell trinkets from their own boats. But as we arrived at Wat Arun, we were left in awe.
This Buddhist temple will leave you with a sense of tranquility as you step into the Holy area. Surrounded by well maintained and lush gardens, the ornate and intricate detail is evident on each of the towers. Each tower is adorned with bells, porcelain flowers, mosaic art, and other oriental designs. Thailand has done a fantastic job preserving its extraordinary beauty.
