This was our first visit to the temples. Learned we were expected to leave our shoes outside. Note to self: bring flip flops for easy removal!!! Temple is beautiful, I can't enough of all the work you get to see around it. It's just beautiful.

If you like gold this will give you your fill but it is in very stark contrast to the condition a lot of Thais live in particularly along the canals.

Great to go and see the Golden Buddha in person it is quite surreal to see. Area around the temple itself is a little to touristy however overall experience is quite good for a quick stop off whilst touring the city.

I like the idea of buddhism and very much appreciate it's modesty but what I dislike is the prices and overall attitude towards travelers and tourists. I really wanted to know more about the temple and the teachings but the monks and scholars didn't seem to like to answer my questions. Also it was quite expensive just to climb up... More
