    An incredible temple just between Khao San and the Rambuttri street, free to enter and really serene and peaceful. Lovely to see the monks in their orange robes just a few hundred meters from the Khao San area and all are welcome here, just make sure you take off your shoes before you enter because I didn’t realise and had to back out very quickly!
