Take a walk through China Town to get to the Golden Buddha. The whole experience is well worth it. We used the Hop-on Hop-off river tour and then walked from the pier. It's a good 4km walk, so be prepared

While you sit in the temple, a very present calm washes over you. The Buddha is incredibly beautiful but the entire "alter" with the 5 servant Buddhas circling around the main Buddha is equally as awe-inspiring. Very peaceful, very calming. Just gorgeous.

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.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
