Attraction Places

Golden Mountain - Wat Saket (Distant 2.4 KM from Hotel)
Wat Saket is an undistinguished temple except for the Golden Mountain or Phu Khao Thong, on the west side of the grounds. The steep climb tip to the Golden Mountain puts everything back in perspective and offers views over Rattanakosin Island that are simply stunning. The artificial hill was created when a large Chedi under construction by King Rama III collapsed because the soft soil beneath would not support it.

The resulting mud-and-brick hill was left to sprout weeds until King Rama IV built a small Chedi on its crest. King Rama V later added to the structure and housed a Buddha relic from India in the Chedi. The concrete walls were added during World War II to prevent the hill from eroding.

Every November a large festival, held on the ground of Wat Saket, includes a candle light procession up the Golden Mountain...More details

The connected to Rattanakosin via the boulevards of Rajdamnoen Klang and Rajdamnoen Nok, the spacious, leafy area known as Dusit had been the royal district since the reign of Rama V (1860-1910).

Wat Pho - The Temple of the Reclining Buddh (Distant 3.2 KM from Hotel)
Just behind the opulent extravagance of the Temple of the Emerald Buddha stands Wat Phra Chetuphon, which is more commonly known by its old name of Wat Pho .

The temple is actually much older than the city of Bangkok itself. It was founded in the 17 th century, making it the oldest temple in Bangkok. The name Wat Pho comes from its original name of Wat Photaram.
