A fantastic story behind the Golden Buddha, we had a tour guide which was great, I found myself fascinated in the story.
It was busy, so again try and go as early in the day as possible to avoid crowds and the heat.

Hello, Miss Nancy, you could take the MRT, go to the station “HUA LUM PHONG”, there also the BANGKOK RAILWAYS STATION, in the station have map to golden temple, or you can ask local people you want to go “WAT TRAI MIT”. You don’t need take taxi or tuk tuk, just about 10~15 mins walking. Believe or not, you even stand at the entrance railway station can see the top of golden temple. Hope it will help you, thank you very much!
