What people are saying about Wat Arun
We are a family with two teenagers and we had 12 hours between our flight so we booked a trip with a driver and a guide. Our guide was very nice and with good spirit she brought us to what we wanted to see: The temple Wat Pho, a trip on the canals with a long boat, a nice cafe next to the big canal for lunch and a shopping center at the end (although the MBK shopping center was a bit disappointing, so maybe choose another shoping center :-) ). We had good time and returned to the airport in fine time for our fly home.
