Where to stay near Temple of the Golden Buddha
Exploring Temple of the Golden Buddha
Also known as the Wat Traimit temple, this is another of one of the best places to visit in Bangkok, with its five-ton solid gold Buddha that was only discovered by accident in the 1960s. It was hidden from view for centuries owing to the rampaging Burmese. The 2nd floor of the building is home to the Phra Buddha Maha Suwanna Patimakorn Exhibition, which shows how the statue was made, discovered and came to arrive at its current home. The 3rd floor is home to the Yaowarat Chinatown Heritage Center, a small museum with multimedia exhibits on the history of Bangkok's Chinatown and its residents.

Sightseeing near Temple of the Golden Buddha
While in this area you will want to visit Sampeng Market. A market that is always crowded and busy, most of the sales that take place here are wholesale, though retail options are possible. You will get the best prices if you buy in bulk and you will find hundreds of clothing and shoes at far cheaper prices than what you would expect to pay in shopping malls or boutiques throughout the city.
Transportation near Temple of the Golden Buddha
Bangkok’s public transport network is its pride and joy, with its BTS Skytrain covering most of the downtown district, with stations close to the majority of attractions. The Bangkok MRT Metro is a subway system that has a wider reach outside the downtown area, and interchanges with the Skytrain at several points. The Airport Rail Link runs from downtown to Suvarnabhumi International Airport. For short journeys by road, there’s the option of tuk-tuks, taxis or motorcycle taxis, but the city’s horrendous traffic problems make the Skytrain or metro the best ways to get around.
