Exceeds expectations

The audio stories really make this app worth every penny. You actually learn interesting things about the temple rather than just dates and names. For example... why is a BUDDHIST temple named after a HINDU god (Arun)? The “Learn more” sections offer “Buddhism for Dummies” audio stories which are very helpful for the rest of Bangkok too.

However, some things need work. First, there should be a tour version that starts at the different temple entrances.... I didn’t start from the recommended entrance, so I needed to make my way to Stop 1 and THEN follow the tour. Annoying but not a deal-breaker. Second, there is a lot of construction at the temple so the route needs updating. (Just a little though).

Overall, very pleased with this purchase. Wat Arun isn’t a top choice for many visitors, but it should be.

So well done !

Full credit to this app. The story is so nicely described. Only because of this story, the visit to this temple became worthwhile. We used this company’s apps while visiting other temples also. All are nice. Things to improve for this one: need to have this story start from both the gates. Some places are confusing but the story makes up for it all. Don’t visit without this app.

Pretty Good Guide

After a good experience at the grand palace, I got this app from the same company and was happy with it.

I had some trouble initially (had to redownload, the starting point was hard to find), but after I figured it out, everything was very smooth.

I particularly liked the extra content under the normal stops. It was easy to miss, but very interesting.
