This had to be one of my favorite temples to visit. Nestled in China town (which is amazing too). It's not the biggest Buddha, but quite possibly the most awe inspiring.

Smaller and more manageable than other temples. Close to the river and China town. You can walk over from Metro station. Entrance is 100 Baht which is pretty worth it.

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

Hi. I think that you can walk to the three temple. If you like to walk. That is what we did. We only book a tour in Chiang Mai to go to the Golden Triangle and was because this was the cheapest way to go there.
