Bangkok, an important financial and economic hub of Southeast Asia, has a wealth of cultural sites that makes it a popular tourist destination
The temples (wat) of Bangkok are the major tourist attractions of the city. There are nearly 400 temples in Bangkok, most of which are built in an architectural style remnant of the classical Bangkok era. At times, there appears to be a temple around every corner! The three significant temples that should not be missed on a tour to the city are Wat Po, Wat Pra Keo and Wat Arun.
