Wat Arun (seen previously) is maybe the most scenic temple in Bangkok. It’s on the other side of the river, so you need to take a ferry to get there. Though it’s the rainy season, we had fine weather for a river crossing:
When you get off the ferry, you can feed the catfish (previously), and you’re greeted by some fine stone crocodiles:
While you can’t climb all the way to the top, you can go a good distance up:
And at the top there are very nice views of the Chao Phraya, which is fairly busy in this section:
There is plenty more to say about this place, but I don’t know very much, so that’s all.
Just down the street from us (though hidden away) is the Bangkok Protestant Cemetery, which you can learn about here. Harriet liked it mostly because it was full of snails. There are some nice stones, which deserve better photos than these:
