What are the numbers and averages?
|This is large and impressive temple complex bang in the heart of Bangkok and inside the Grand Palace complex. The centrepiece, a small emerald Buddha, is extremely important to Thai Buddhists, although as a tourist it pales in comparison to the temple complex as a whole. – Daniel|

|Try to avoid the weekends and public holidays as this temple complex can get extremely busy (with selfie sticks), making decent photo opportunities almost impossible.|
|If you are on a budget and can only choose one temple between this and the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, then the Temple of the Reclining Buddha is generally calmer and much better value for money.|
|Dress conservatively here. Even three-quarter-length trousers are not really allowed (for women especialy) and you may very well be forced to pay to rent a sarong.|
