The last part of the Bangkok trip was about the temples trip.
Another amazing thing of Bangkok is their wat (temple in Siam).

[Wat Traimit] The first temple I visited

As per cerita-ed by the tour guide, she said the sizeand standard of the temple are deferred according to the richness of the citizens who lived around the temples. The richer of their citizens, the better you will see the temples there because the temple can get more donations from the citizens.

Wat Traimit, is a very nice wat with a real gold Buddha. Made of about 83% pure gold and weighing in at five and a half tons, the 15-foot tall seated image is worth millions of dollars at today's gold prices.

[Wat Pho]

Also known also as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha.

Wat Pho is actually quite big. Look at the Plan of the temple below. I've captured a lot of photos of the temples. But to avoid the boringness, or I think you've already bored at the beginning, I only can say this is what Bangkok about. I really hope you can enjoy the photos.

I really think that the giant who stands in front of the wat's door look like "Kong Zi".

[Wat Intharawihan]
