Wat Traimit, also known as the Temple of the Golden Buddha, is located at one end of Bangkok’s bustling Chinatown. The most remarkable feature of this wat that sets it apart from the rest of its peers is the fact that it is home to the world’s largest solid gold Buddha, a stunning image weighing in at 5.5 tons. Visitors can learn about the statue’s interesting history at a museum located on the third floor of the wat.
