Thailand Travel Guide Lighting up Wat Arun Bangkok

Lighting up Wat Arun Bangkok Thailand Travel Guide

The programme highlights the history of the temple, which was built on the site of the 17th century Wat Jang, then on the grounds of King Taksin’s palace when Thon Buri was the capital. Wat Arun is known for its architectural splendour and its glittering phra prang or temple tower, making it one of Bangkok’s most striking of riverside landmarks. The event has a carnival atmosphere, with masked dancing, handicrafts and food sold from stalls. Shows are at 7pm, 8pm, 9pm and 9.30pm nightly. Tickets are sold at the temple, or you can watch the show from the opposite side of the river, although you won’t be able to hear the Thai-language narration. Dinner cruise boats anchor at the pier in front of the temple and provide the best view of all.
