Thailand Day 2 Off to Chinatown!

Another early morning had us heading towards Chinatown again and our first stop was the Golden Buddha at the Wat Traimit Temple. It's the worlds largest solid golden statue.

Located at the end of Chinatown Yaowarat Road, and near Hualampong Railway Station.

The building has been newly renovated and but still has the old classic architect.

There were hardly any people there, so we could enjoy the temple at our own pace and don't have to be squashed in. The room is pretty small.

So many shops, so many things! Lots of crafty things, bulk items. It's crazy! You could actually spend days just wandering the back streets.
