Wat Phanan Choeng

Look at that Buddha sparkle

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3.5 stars

Built 26 years before Ayutthaya was officially established, this working riverside temple houses Thailand's largest gilded Buddha -- a dazzling six-metre tall seated image known as Phra Buddha Trirattana Nayok or Luang Pho To.

The image is among the most revered in Thailand and the temple is often full of Thai worshipers, though few foreign tourists make it here.

After seeing the glittering gold Buddha, be sure to walk round the side of the temple down to the river where you can feed hundreds of enormous fish.
