- Wat Bukkhalo was founded in 1767 during the Ayutthaya Period. Tourists rarely get here despite its proximity to the Chao Phraya River. Steps up the outside of the three-story building take visitors to the rooftop where several Buddha images are shaded from the sun by small sala structures. Enjoy the breeze from the river and an impressive view while sharing the shade with the Buddha. A couple of food vendors are usually on the temple grounds. Merit making in the form of feeding the river fish is quite common thanks to the riverside access and kids typically get a kick out of this. Cross the Rama III Bridge to Thonburi to get here and go left at the other side to find Soi 63 on the riverside and the entrance marked by an ornate arch. Taxi is an easy option but the BRT bus crosses Rama III Bridge putting you in walking distance.
