A wonderful tourist attraction, but also a significant stop for serious pilgrims of the Buddhist faith. The architecture is impressive and the Buddha images are excellent examples of Thai religious art.

Very nice and beautiful Buddha!!! Recommendation place. But here is a bit far from MRT so it's better to catch Tuk Tuk for 30 bath.

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

For all the temples, a donation is expected but not required. We usually provided $10 US per person. Keep in mind that the temples and the monks are a major part of Thailand's social safety net. The monks choose to serve... More
