We drove to the church on Friday. It was peaceful. The church is riverside and is between two schools. The stained glasses were beautiful. We stayed there about 30 minutes.

interesting area of Bangkok but the church itself is pretty average. I don't think many people come to Bangkok to look at Catholic churches at least not myself. The area is worth visiting and you might as well take a few photos of the church...More

A good place for prayer/meditation even for a non-Catholic like me (a Buddhist) - the Church is open-minded/accommodative enough to let non-Christians see its interiors (and most likely join the mass on Sundays), likewise any other religious places in Thailand. Its enchanting time-honored stained glasses...More

Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop
