Interesting story - massive gold hidden and only revealed by accident. Not too crowded, when we visited.

Included in an half day trip to temples in Bangkok, this was the first to see. Everything was decorated in yellow and white for the celebration. The temple impressed because of the gold used in Buda. Love this place.

The temple as such is not one of the most beautiful.. there are no gardens and it is populated with photographers that want to sell you a pin of your own face... but the Statue is monumental another MUST in Bangkok

Stumbled across this temple as we were wandering towards Chinatown. Very impressive to look at from the outside and equally impressive inside. Happy to have stumbled across it.

all-day markets. The real action, however, happens
after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and
tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast
