  • It is a temple located in Bangkok's Chinatown. From Hua lamphong railway station can be reached on foot. Fancy decorations and pray diligently locals were impressive.

  • I agree with lot of opinions very beautiful temple on it including the superb inside the Emerald Buddha. But beware, we tend to all ours with our big hoofs of tourist (me included) because this place is above all a place of pretty intimate worship for this community. In talking with a guard, the latter confirms always smile and welcome tourists in the Thai, but according to him it is not to wave or bad image of the country. Because it tells me that this place is sacred to them, so try to be, maybe for this one, even a little more humble for some of us. I am absolutely no one here, only things seen there!

  • Also known as the temple of drago in Thai. This is a long estanlished Chinese Buddish temple in Bangkok. People come here to do good deed and pray. It will be crowded during the fesitals (e.g. Chinese new year).
  • chinese style temple. not as impressive or as peaceful as thai style temple
  • well-known among chinese thais, long established chinese temple in the centre of chinatown bangkok. there is still atmosphere reminding some traditional thai chinese, toew chew, memories i had when my granny took me to pray. Be decent both dress and behaviour. cheers.
  • They call it the temple of the dragon. It is not easy to find the entrance. It is an area with few tourists and does not speak English. It is quite usual on weekends to see Chinese families getting into luxury cars and making a lot of money donations. There are several rooms with different atmospheres, I like it. You have to be extremely polite and keep a lot of silence if not they willlook at you badly
  • I was advised to come here to "fix my misfortune" (แก้ปีชง") because my Chinese zodiac, rooster, is not aligned with the zodiac Rooster (my own year). The fortune-enhancing kit cost 100 baht. I felt stupid for doing something I had never done before. However, the architecture inside temple was overall nice although not novel. In the next 2 years, an underground metro station will be ready to service visitors that want to walk around the Chinatown. This metro is constructed under the Chao Praya river.

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
