A beautiful Budha Temple, very well organised to help tourists visits. The golden statue of Budha is huge and very impressive. Ladies must be suitably dressed to visit this temple, one has to remove foot wear to enter the temple.

As expected very busy & difficult to get photos as so many people crowding in front of the Buddha but this is certainly one of the temples which is a must to visit.

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
