Historic, stunning, non-touristy

What we say: 3.5 stars

The largest and most important of Phra Phradaeng's many temples, Wat Song Thum is located at the corner of Petchahung and Song Thum Roads just west of Bhumibol Bridge.

Built some 300 years ago, the spacious temple grounds include an ubosot with an ancient wooden Buddha image transplanted from Sukhothai a shrine to Brahma that's known among locals to bring good luck to those who leave offerings before it, and a large white chedi built in Mon style.

It's still a lively community centre that also contains a school, and Saturday or Sunday mornings offer the opportunity to experience light-hearted gatherings of locals.
