Visit some great temples in Bangkok
For lovers of culture, travel in Thailand will be able to focus on visits to some of the temples of the country. Bangkok, the capital, contains some temples should not be missed if one wants to soak up the strong Thai spirituality, but also to enjoy a special and extraordinary architecture.
The tour of the temples of Bangkok can begin with the most emblematic, Wat Phra Kaew. It is located in the heart of the city of Bangkok, occupying a royal palace and housing the legendary Emerald Buddha, which only the King can approach. It seduces visitors with its spiritual and mystical atmosphere.
Need to enjoy this stay in Bangkok to find out Wat Arun (Temple of dawn). It is a fascinating religious site to Khmer architecture, located on the shore of the Chao Phraya River. It has been built at the time when Ayutthaya was the capital of the Kingdom of Siam. His visit will be more enjoyable at dawn or at dawn, when the first or last solar lights come flush with the sumptuous building.
Classified world heritage by UNESCO since 2005, Wat Sutat is also worth the detour. It is one of the oldest temples in Bangkok, it is famous for the gigantic red swings placed around the building.

The must-see of the country
In Ayutthaya, visitors will have the opportunity to visit the WatYai Chai Mongkon who is the most famous temple in this town. They will be able to admire on this site the most beautiful statue of Buddha in the world: Phra Buddha Chinarat. This statue is used from model to multiple copies in the world. Throughout the year, the temple is frequented by thousands of Buddhists on pilgrimages.
Nakhon Si Thammarat, tourists will be able to discover the WatMahathat that host a replica of the Buddha from Sri Lanka, more than 1,000 years ago. This statue is placed below the main chedi of the temple. Nakhon Si Thammarat is the capital of the Buddhism in the southern region of the country: the atmosphere that prevails is the most sublime and spiritual.
Located in Phetchaburi, Wat Ko KeoSuttharam also deserves to be visited during this tour in Thailand. This temple fascinates mostly Faràng or white men from the West. It has a wall consisting of images made at the time when first Westerners have crossed the lands of the Kingdom of Siam. In 1730, this wall was completely painted, but there are still some traces of these historical images.
