A short distance from the venerable façade of Mandarin Oriental is the Buddhist temple of Wat Suan Plu, the Haroon Mosque and the Cathedral of the Assumption, which is almost 200 years old. The Bang Rak neighborhood is both the heart of modern Bangkok and a kaleidoscopic street life spectacle of this Asian capital.
