Erawan Shrine
4.5/5
4,299 Reviews
Statue/Sculpture
The Four-Faced Buddha in Bangkok, Thailand, is known for its efficacy. For this reason, the Buddha is widely admired and highly sought after by the stars and celebrities of Hong Kong and Taiwan. Because it is located near large shopping malls like the Central World, it has also become a famous tourist attraction in Bangkok. In Thailand and Southeast Asia, the Four-Faced Buddha is considered a benevolent god. The Four-faced Buddha in Bangkok is in the Erawan Shrine amd the statue of the god is about 4 meters high. There are four faces altogether, which represent the four virtues of compassion, empathy, joy and charity. Those who pray for spiritual ascension must work hard to cultivate these four virtues.
Chao Phraya
4.5/5
2,661 Reviews
River
The Chao Phraya River is known as the “Mother River” in Thailand and is also called the “Venice of the East”. Spanning a total of 1,352 kilometers, the Chao Phraya River runs through the southeastern part of Thailand and flows through the Bangkok city. It plays an important role in urban transport and the lives of the shore residents. The water transport on the Chao Phraya River is very convenient. The Chao Phraya Express Boat is one of the main domestic transport vehicles in the daily lives of Bangkok citizens. It is also a frequent means of transport for tourists. Sitting on a boat and watching the scenery on both sides of the river is pleasant, while taking a night tour of the Chao Phraya River is both romantic and comfortable. These two are definitely worth experiencing.
Wat Arun
4.5/5
1,209 Reviews
Temple
Wat Arun is a prominent Buddhist temple located along the banks of the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok Yai District. It is one of the few temples that remain from Thailand’s Chakri dynasty. The temple’s most distinctive feature is the central Khmer-style tower. Glazed porcelain tiles and seashells cover the exterior, giving the entire complex a brilliant shine, particularly in the early morning light. For many years Wat Arun housed the famous Emerald Buddha, before it was moved to Wat Phra Kaew in 1785. As one of Bangkok’s beloved temples, this is certainly an attraction visitors won’t want to miss.
