Beautiful place. It is so interesting to see the detail of how everything was made. Don't forget to dress appropriately. We went on Saturday and it was pretty busy. Take plenty of pictures. This is a must see location.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
