Recommendation by Joshua Lam

Wat Arun, better known as 'The Temple of Dawn', is the iconic temple along Bangkok's riverside that you usually see on sunset postcards. As an architect, I know the importance of stupas in Buddhist architecture where the top symbolically represents the six heavens. What makes this temple so different from a typical Buddhist temple are the colored faience, which is encrusted with colorful porcelain and seashells, creating a kaleidoscope of colors and reflections at different times of the day. Tip: Don't forget about the smaller Ordination Hall which has less crowds but is just as amazing! (All photos: Self-taken.)
