Located right at the end of Chinatown, you have to pay a small fee of 40 bahts to see the Buddha and an optional 100 bahts if you want to go through the museum on their 3rd and 2nd floor which is really worth it...More
4 floors up the temple itself is pretty basic compared to the treasure inside. Have never been impressed by the temples in Thailand - compared to the carved stone work of Cambodia. Most Thai stuff is cast concrete. This temple is much the same.

This was directly behind our hotel. With a quick walk around the corner we dropped in for a visit. 40b charge per person which is reasonable to maintain the venue. Shoes must be taken off and left outside in a rack. Ladies cover up as...More
This is in an unusual spot best to taxi to it,
Entry is not expensive but the extra to go through the museum was a waste of time

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
on some of the best street food in town. Escape the chaos by venturing a little further from the main road and discover hidden shrines, friendly locals and daily life in its purest form.

Hello, Miss Nancy, you could take the MRT, go to the station “HUA LUM PHONG”, there also the BANGKOK RAILWAYS STATION, in the station have map to golden temple, or you can ask local people you want to go “WAT TRAI MIT”. You don’t need take taxi or tuk tuk, just about 10~15 mins walking. Believe or not, you even stand at the entrance railway station can see the top of golden temple. Hope it will help you, thank you very much!
