Visit Bangkok’s many temples There’s pretty much a temple in every neighbourhood of Bangkok, and many of them are free .
Temples in Thailand are called wats, and while every temple is different, most have a chedi (a stupa or pagoda, sometimes gilded, sometimes made of stone) and/or a prang (a Khmer-style conical tower with a broad base and viharn (assembly halls and a main building you can enter).
Currently, the Church has 168 dedicated temples — with eight of them closed for major renovations. If one adds in the 23 under construction or the 40 announced and in various planning and design stages, the Church’s total is 231 temples overall.

Bangkok is a dirty city though but a lot of SEA cities are. The highlights are the smaller places, beaches, islands, villages etc. Thai people generally are not helpful at all – the ones that talk to tourists are usually trying to sell you something or rip you off. That’s normally the case in the touristy places.
Most statistics say yes, as the Bangkok crime rate is lower than that of many U.S. cities, and violence against tourists is rare.
So the best rule of thumb is, unless you want to show you are a Red Shirt supporter, don’t wear a red shirt. The main rule of thumb in Thailand is dress more conservatively than you would at home, and women should always wear bras, particularly in Bangkok.
Also, sandals are acceptable, but must have a strap around the back (again, no flip flops or backless sandals allowed). If you arrive at Wat Phra Kaew wearing unsuitable clothes, you will be able to borrow something suitable, but if you have incorrect shoes you will not be allowed to enter the temple .
Gold in Bangkok is cheaper than lot of Western and Asian countries. The quality of gold is better too. As majority of gold ornaments in Thailand are 96.5% pure. Gold bar is 99.99% pure.
Shorts or pants are supposed to cover the knees. Tight stretch pants, some athletic wear , and clingy tops may also be considered a little too revealing. Much of the popular “Sure” and “No Time” brands of clothing sold to backpackers in Thailand depict themes from Buddhism and Hinduism.
Can you Wear Shorts in Thailand temples ? Yes you definitely can , but they must reach to at least below the knee.
The important things to visit The Grand Palace & The Emerald Buddha temple in Bangkok, please wear a shirt cover your shoulders, as well as long pants to cover your ankles, skirt or dress below your knees. The dress code to visit all Buddhist temples in Thailand is more flexible.
