Wat Paknam Bhasicharoen (also written Pak Nam Phasi Charoen, Thai: วัดปากน้ำภาษีเจริญ) in Phasi Charoen district, Bangkok is a very large wat with a sizeable population of monks and nuns. Many foreigners have stayed at this temple over the years.

The temple is perhaps best known for its meditation lessons. The meditation teacher can speak some English and the junior monks are able to interpret.

The temple is located at Toed Thai Road, Phasi Charoen, Thonburi, and is accessible by road or by chartered long-tailed boat from Tha Chang or Tha Saphan Phut.
