What people are saying about Wat Arun

It was nice but unable to take good pics due to not able to walk around after dinner. There’s no space to walk around the ship. So it would be nice to be able to eat then freely walk up to second deck to take pics.

One of the best tours I’ve experienced in Bangkok! Riding the scooters was so much fun throughout the streets of BKK coupled with excellent local food! Thank you Tony & Pingpon

The driver forced me to pay the parking fee, otherwise he wouldn't take me back to the hotel. I stayed another 30 minutes. trapped inside the parking lot. Inadmissible!
