Directly across the river from Wat Pho sits Wat Arun, one of the most recognizable spots in Bangkok. I recommend arriving just before sunset to climb up the spire. All Bangkok temples adhere to a dress code and, even though wraps are available to rent, making the short but steep climb in a sarong can be tricky to navigate modestly.
