One of the most beautiful places in Bangkok is the artificially raised Golden Mount with the Wat Saket Buddhist temple at its top. It is also a great view of practically the whole of Bangkok. Definitely the biggest charm is here in the early evening. Admission is paid here. The temple is located less than two kilometers east of the tourist center of Bangkok – Khao San Street

View of Wat Saket

Wat Saket can be seen from a distance and it is a really impressive and beautiful structure. If a taxi driver does not take you to it, but you walk, it is quite convenient offline mapy.cz, because the building is located in the direction from the center behind the water channel and does not lead to a completely direct road

Golden model of the Golden Mountain

Although two stairs lead to the top of the mountain, but both are one-way, so the flow of tourists is quite directed. The lower part of the „mountain“ is overgrown with lush vegetation with lots of statues.

Streams and waterfalls

The pleasant tropical atmosphere is completed by small streams and waterfalls. It is hard to believe that everything here is artificially created

Ascent and descent to the mountain

Thanks to its surroundings, the ascent and descent up the stairs is interesting in itself

Early evening at Wat Saket

The early evening has a special charm, probably due to the fact that there are fewer tourists at this time

První památka, co jsem objevil v Bangkoku při mé první cestě v Asii. Samozřejmě nezapomenutelné!
