I stumbled upon this beautiful and unique temple after randomly going down a little market alley and seeing the gate. To begin it doesn’t look to be much, but if you continue down the parking lot and enter, you are well rewarded. This a large...More

Good for a 10 minute shopping break if you a tourist in the area. There are guard booths at each entrance but nobody asked for a ticket to be purchased. Active religious site, appropriate dress required.

This is a very traditional Chinese Temple from the 1800s, in includes shrines for the major Chinese religions: Buddhism, Taoism and Confucian. The smell of incense is intoxicating

The largest and most important Chinese Buddhist temple in Bangkok. I go there at Chinese New Year, and it was very crowded but worth a visit. Difficult to explain the atmosphere and the smells, you need to feel it by yourself...

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
