Bangkok's Temple of the Emerald Buddha houses the country's most revered Buddha image and is on the grounds of the Royal Palace. If you only visit one temple in Thailand, make it this one.
The serene Reclining Buddha housed in Wat Po, just next to the Grand Palace, is matched only by the quirky and interesting stonework on the temple's grounds.
Bangkok's famous Temple of Dawn might just be the city's most beautiful Buddhist temple. It's just across the river from the Grand Palace and is easy to get to by river ferry.
Also known as the Golden Mount Temple, Wat Saket is a great place to visit not just because of the impressive chiedi but because of the view from the top of it.
Visit this peaceful temple right in the middle of the busy shopping district for a break from all the consumerism and a chance to wander the beautiful grounds.
Home to a 15-foot Buddha image, said to be made of solid gold, Wat Traimit was once an unremarkable temple but since renovations were completed in 2009 is a stunning white marble temple on the edge of Bangkok's Chinatown.
