     Wat Hua lamphong can see the architectural style of the beautiful downtown Silom, surawongse area in Bangkok, while very sacred in Thailand. Comes with power spot for Thailand, to many people. The moment out of the Metro and saw the building, I myself like I washed his mind.

    Nowadays with the royal palace being reserved for paying respect to the late king of Thailand. This is a great alternative for anyone from other countries to get closer to an authentic Thai Buddhist temple. 40 baht entry ticket for tourists. The main hall is breathtaking, that alone is worth the small entry fee.
