Besides, from the station it takes around 15-20 minutes to walk to Chao Mae Tuptim Shrine or Penis Shrine. This is maybe the weirdest shrine on earth. Some woman, who wants to have a baby go to this shrine to make a wish. And if their wishes come true, they will return to the shrine and place a wooden carving of a penis there.

Hope this information helps. Enjoy travelling Bangkok!
