No reason to go there as the big Buddha is under reconstruction. If you are beeing reccommended to go there by tuk tuk drivers be aware of the reconstruction.

Impressive structure, we visited early to avoid the crowds, well worth the visit, we went by tuk tuk for the emerald palace, great day sight seeing, plenty to see and ‘feel’, take some water if it’s hot. 100 bhat return to the emerald Buddha.

We where staying at Khao San Toad and the temple was 15 minutes walk from our Hotel. There is no entrance fee, the temple is really beautiful with the tall Buddha. Nice walk, worth visiting.

We went there when it was raining so we couldn’t really see much. There’s a huge Buddha but that’s about it.

I spent 5 minutes at the standing Buddha. It's an impressive site, to be sure. It's not as interesting or impressive as the reclining Buddha or other great attractions in Bangkok. What stuck with me was a fairly low-key site (didn't feel well-maintained) and unfortunately...More

it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
