This temple became popular from all the amazing photographs taken here. Wat Arun typically is a 70-meter-high spire decorated with tiny pieces of coloured glass and porcelain.

Entry Fee

It was 50 Baht in 2019 when we went, 2021 on Google Reviews most are saying it’s still 50 Baht ($1.90cad) while blog posts are saying 100B ($3.80cad).

Dress code

Shoulders and knees have to be covered. So bring a sarong and a shawl, or purchase a long dress (that covers the shoulders) in the market for 200 baht ($7.50cad).


You can rent a shawl or a sarong at the temple for 20 baht ($1cad) with a 100 baht refundable deposit. They have so many beautiful sarongs, the sarong in the photo is a rental. 


Plan to spend an hour exploring the temple and everything around it.
