This was directly behind our hotel. With a quick walk around the corner we dropped in for a visit. 40b charge per person which is reasonable to maintain the venue. Shoes must be taken off and left outside in a rack. Ladies cover up as...More

It's a small temple but very beautiful with marble and gold colour exterior and interior. It houses the 5.5 tonnes solid gold Buddha which is very beautiful. It's worth a visit as we don't get to see that much of gold everyday. Only spent few...More

It isn't until your guide tells the story of the golden buddha that you can't comprehend that it wasn't that long ago that they found out by accident that the buddha was solid gold it's'a wonder to behold

We really enjoyed our visit to this temple to see the Golden Buddha. Our guide from "Withlocals.com" was able to point out various interesting facts about the temple. Be sure to ring the bells to bring you good health.

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
