Wat Arun is visible from a distance in Bangkok city and it's structure looks wonderful and especially during night or blue hour of the day. Irrespective of your decision if you would want to visit Wat Arun or not, you must take a stroll around the temple and that may be a walk around a place from where you can look at this beautiful architecture in Bangkok city. Above photograph shows, night view of Wat Arun in Bangkok city of Thailand. In my opinion, the temple looks more beautiful during night and especially during blue hour of the day. Another benefit to seeing it in night is that you would not feel that hot while experiencing it's beauty, which makes overall experience even better.
