Another place of worship that shouldn't be missed. You need a peace of mind, then just sit there for few minutes and you would feel the serenity. That's the power of this place. Don't miss out...

There is an interesting story behind this temple. A beautiful Buddha made of solid gold right on the heart of the city. Merits a visit

weather was not good and really wet when I visited this pagoda but it was still worth the visit to the beautiful temple. You will fully appreciate the beauty of the art and the depth of the spirituality of this culture. Recommend

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.
