Among the many temples in Bangkok, this is a must see place simply because of the huge gold temple, and also of the history of how the Buddha statue was hidden for centuries unknown to many it was made of gold. Amazing!

Located in Chinatown amid bustling streets but relatively easy to find. Admission was 140bht each which includes the exhibition. We visited late morning and it was not overly busy. The history hall is worth reading and the Golden Buddha is very impressive.
