Part of a ‘3 Temples tour’, the Golden Buddha was billed as the highlight due to its 5.5 tonnes of solid gold statue. Yes it was very impressive and quite breathtaking, but the actual site itself is quite small and we literally had seen everything...More

Interesting temple, much more the external in my opinion than the view of the gold buddha. No ticket fees.

Very significant Thai historical & religious temple famous for its Golden Buddha with a tall complex Cheri to house it, decorated in typical colored ceramic style

We went on a honey moon. Nice temple. Good to visit during your stay in Bangkok. It's better to go with a local guide.

Not a bad place to visit. Basically you will not need more than 15 minutes to go in and out. You need to purchase ticket for 40 Baht. Dress modest with long pants and shoulders covered. Also, there’s a lady inside will shout “no video”...More

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
