Jomtien at dusk, Pattaya, Thailand

Wat Traimit in Bangkok, Thailand.

Good morning Thailand and a Happy Saturday. Buddha statue outside of Wat Traimit in Bangkok, Thailand.

Located at the end of Chinatown's Yaowarat Road, near Hualampong Railway Station, Wat Traimit houses the world's largest massive gold seated Buddha measuring nearly five metres in height and weighing five and a half tons. In the past, artisans crafted the Buddhas in gold and disguised them from invading armies by a covering of stucco and plaster.
