This place is so wonderful. I went with a large group. It is difficult to explain its attraction as it is one of these places which you experience. It is magical and spiritual at the same time.

Thailand is a wonderful place if stunning architecture is your thing (and even if it ISN'T your thing!). Visiting some of the incredible temples is a "must do".

Worth a visit. It is a nice historic site to visit near chinatown. I believe in most temples there is a dress code for women so keep that in mind.

You have to go to see the Buddha up close, but this is not a peaceful temple. Lots of people yelling and elbowing for position to take pictures. 40 baht entry. You need to take off your shoes, but the ground is not hot and they have shoe racks.

The Temple of the Golden Buddha was a very historical and neat place. There is a dress code for females, so make sure you understand what you can and can't wear. I enjoyed my visit and took about 45 mins to see everything in the area. A nice stop in Bangkok

On our adventure through Chinatown we stumbled upon Wat Traimit, home to The Golden Buddha, the world's largest solid gold statue with an unusual history. The Golden Buddha is truly a wonder - a pinnacle of human perfection and devotion.

Beautiful, peaceful, magnanimous, opulent statues of the Lord. Worth a visit to imbibe the inner peace & outer beauty of the Holy place & its Divine Presence. One of the most beautiful temples of the Lord....a must visit!
