Wat Traimit in Bangkok, Thailand: The Most Golden Temple To See At The Tip of Chinatown

Wat Traimit in Bangkok

The Temple of the Golden Buddha in Bangkok, Thailand is difficult to find, to be honest. I ended up stumbling upon a Thai temple for burial purposes before arriving to this place, and you can just imagine the horror expressions of people when they saw me taking pictures of the “temples”, which were actually burial places. True story.

Wat Traimit is located at the very tip of Chinatown's Yaowarat Road, near Hualampong Railway Station. But when you find it, you’re in for a treat – it houses the world's largest massive gold seated Buddha. Every Buddha in Thailand will have some hints of gold or be all out gold like this one; it’s truly a mighty sight-for-surprise kind of experience.

Since there were no scared stares when I took photos of the place, I knew this was the one. The Wat Traimit is one of those temples that would remind you why it is important to habitually go to temples. It looks very timely and “daily”. Nothing too over the top, and nothing too low key. Check these out, in case you’d like to try and experience a less popular, less populated temple in Bangkok.
