What the Wat: Exploring the Temples of Bangkok

thailand-bangkok-web-127

Everywhere you turn in Bangkok is another wat (temple) and there is no way you can see them all. I’m not going to lie: I reached my wat limit pretty quickly, though my mother would strain to see behind the walls of each one we passed. To see the classics, head to the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, and across the river to Wat Arun. They are all incredibly intricate and detailed, each with a unique feeling all their own. Peaceful they are not, though, as hoards of tourists pass through throughout the day. Duck into a less-known neighborhood wat for a more tranquil experience.
