Lovely environment and beautiful temples - can you see more of them? dress codes must be observed. Women not allowed into some of the temples. have to pay for all sorts of things. But very beautiful and appealing.

This temple complex is located just outside the Old City - just east of Tha Phae Gate. Although it is located on a busy street, once you enter and are within the high walls, it is as if the outside world ceases to exist. It...More
