Bangkok’s Buddha Road

Life before Bangkok might not include a strong need for saffron monks’ robes and prayer flags, but spend a week in this city and you just might feel the overwhelming desire to purchase a six-foot golden buddha. If the urge strikes, go to Thanon Bamrung Muang Road. Bangkok’s “Buddha Road” has you covered for all your Eastern spiritual souvenirs and religious artifacts. Even I, the least spiritual person you’ll meet, enjoyed a stroll through this fascinating part of town – and now have a new appreciation for saffron.
