I enjoyed looking at all of the large statues. Everything was well kept and you were able to get close up and view.

The Golden Buddha is amazing to see in person. The Temple is very clean and well kept! Go early to avoid crowds and the heat.

this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
