Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit) Tours

star-4
276 Reviews
Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit)
Home to the world's largest gold Buddha statue, the Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit) is a prominent stop on Bangkok’s temple trail. Measuring nine feet (three meters) tall and weighing more than five tons (4,535 kilograms), the Buddha attracts floods of visitors who come to marvel at its size and gleaming golden surface.

The Basics
Visits to the Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit) are most often included on Bangkok temple tours that also stop at the Temple of the Emerald Buddha at the Grand Palace and the reclining Buddha statue at Wat Pho. Tours typically run about a half day, but full-day itineraries may also take you sightseeing in Bangkok or beyond, with explorations of floating markets and night markets, or a tuk-tuk or canal ride. Some tours include lunch in nearby Chinatown. See the temple as part of a private or small-group tour for more individualized commentary from the guide.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The temple is wheelchair-accessible and includes an elevator as an alternative to the staircases. 
  • Remember that Buddhist temples are functioning religious sites, so be sure to dress respectfully with covered shoulders. Pants or knee-length skirts are required to enter Thai temples.
  • Admission to the temple is free, but there’s a small entrance fee for the museum located on the third floor.

How to Get There
Located on Traimit Road at the end of Yaowarat Road in Chinatown, the Temple of the Golden Buddha (Wat Traimit) is best reached from nearby Hua Lamphong Station, the main railway station in Bangkok. However, the easiest way to visit is with a guided tour that includes round-trip transportation from your hotel. 

When to Get There
Due to the remarkable architecture and Golden Buddha statue, Wat Traimit is a popular attraction year-round, so booking your tour early is recommended. It’s best to arrive in the morning to beat the crowds as well as the potential for afternoon heat or rain.

Get a Peek at History
The centuries-old Golden Buddha, seated in a peaceful lotus position, is made of solid gold. Once hidden from invading Burmese armies by a covering of plaster, its gold cast wasn’t discovered until the 1950s. Pieces of the plaster that once formed its disguise can now be found in a display case at the onsite museum.
Address: Thanon Mittaphap Thai-China Talat Noi, Samphanthawong, Bangkok, Thailand
