Lovely temple and surroundings. The Buddha was amazing. Although it was busy, there was still plenty of room to wander around and take lots of photos. Make sure to respect the dress code. Men can wear long shorts, but must have shoulders covered. Women must...More

Like most Buddhist temples, there is only a 5-ton Buddha solid gold statue. The location is very close to China Town in the city of Bangkok

The Temple and the statue are verry impresive and a must see if you are Herr. The entrance for the statue is just 40 baht(1 Euro) so definetely worth it. The Museum costs 100 baht and is .... definetely not worth it.

A lovely temple with a magnificent golden Buddha at the top. Interesting signs gave some info (unfortunately, many in Thai so i couldnt understand much) and was a cool place to take some pics too. Recommended for a quick stop.

You learn a lot about respecting Buddha (no tattoos, no using Buddha as decoration, wear appropriate dress covering shoulders and knees--no shoes) and then you climb the steps, not too many, to see the beautiful Golden Buddha and enjoy a view of the city.

Ticket to the temple costs 40 bhats and it’s worth it. Buddha made of gold. Beautiful and peaceful. I took a tuk tuk so am not sure if there is a station nearby!

Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is
Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During
the day, the main street and its small alleyways are
filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and
flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and
all-day markets. The real action, however, happens
after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and
tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast
