Recommendation by Lemi

Built during the early 19th century, Wat Suthat is noted for being one of 10 first-class temples in all of Bangkok. Take the time to explore and admire the details, which include hand-carved wooden gates and images of Buddha on its walls. Luckily, it’s easy to spot the temple thanks to the bright red 21-meter tall swing found near the area. A popular tourist attraction in Bangkok, the red swing is part of a ceremonial Hindu activity that involves young men swinging up to 75 meters high to get their hands on a sack of gold.
