I consider this to be the best temple in Bangkok due to it's sheer size and the grand views all around. Well worth a few hours of your day.
Good to visit on a nice sunny day to make the most of the sun shining off the Golden Stupa at the top and also to enjoy the views of Bangkok. It is a nice walk to the top up quite a few stairs. These stairs should be fine for most people and there are plenty of places to stop.... More
Sites from this place are breath taking. Is quiet a walk so take it easy if you aren't fit. Even if you are not fit make sure you do do it because the sights are well worth the 10 or so minute trek. There are places to stop and have a rest so you can take your time. Defiantly bring... More
This chedi is very large, but is not at all ornate and very plain in comparison to the other temples and sights around town.

Takes about 10 mins to walk - or less from Khao san Road so avoid the highly over priced tuk tuk tours taking you... More

If you're planning on checking out several temples, I'd put this on the top of your list for sure. It's surrounded by safe neighborhoods so I'd recommend for it for solo travelers as well.
I enjoyed this little stop. It was a little but steep hike to the top, so bring a bottle of water. There are some great views of the surrounding city with its diverse types of structures: temples, modern and low cost.
