With all the beautiful wats in Bangkok, what makes this one so special? This is by most accounts the most important Chinese Buddhist wat in Thailand. Chinese immigrants played and continue to play an important role in the economic, political, and other aspects of Thai...More

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.

My first comment when I walked through the gates was "I like what they've done to the place." The car park, oil drum fires and grime really adds to the whole,functional feel of this temple. I'm pretty snap-happy and I think I left with 2...More

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
