Take the Skytrain to S6 Saphan Taksin Station (Silom Line). Leave via Exit 2 and walk to nearby Chao Phraya Express Boat - Pier 8. Take a cross-river ferry to Wat Arun. Admission to the Wat is a 10 Baht donation.
First of all, the 2baht ride on the river was interesting in itself. These commuter boats are cheap and fun. A great way to see a part of the city that you may not otherwise see (if you can't afford to stay at the Penninsula Hotel).
Views of the temple from the river are gorgeous and upclose the structure is amazing. Take a stroll around and enjoy the peace. It is uncongested and quiet. Watch the monks and take lots of pictures. As with all temples dress appropriately -- avoid tank tops and shorts.
