The Golden Buddha is just beautiful. The Buddha is so serene, you can't help but feel calm. We were staying in a hotel literally around the corner from the temple. The temple spire helped us find our way back to the hotel every evening. The...More

One of the things to see in Thailand. Huge golden Buddha that is immaculately kept and is visited by thousands every day but is still easily accessible.

To think that this amazing sculpture fashioned from pure gold survived to today and is now in a modest neighborhood of Bangkok and completely accessible is unbelievable! Very moving!

The architecture is very nice for those who like temples, the Golden Buddha statute is just inside the big room at the temple.Avoid the crowded days like the weekends and religious ceremonies.

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

Hi. I think that you can walk to the three temple. If you like to walk. That is what we did. We only book a tour in Chiang Mai to go to the Golden Triangle and was because this was the cheapest way to go there.
