After a while the Wats blend into one - nothing really memorable about this. Possibly tour operators should include a little variety in their tours.

This is the world's largest solid gold Buddha image weighing at five and a half tons and standing 15 foot tall. The museum on-site tells the story of the golden Buddha. A visit here can be combined with a tour of Chinatown. As with other temples, ensure proper attire.

The most impressive and magnificent giant Buddha what I have seen. It is located close to the Chinatown, again a good reason to see the golden statue :-)

By this stage of my visit to Bangkok I had visited rather a lot of Temples and seen some amazing Buddha images (Wat Pho for example) ... this was pretty spectacular and, tied in with a visit to Chinatown, made it a fab day out with some amazing food in Chinatown ...
