Wat Sothon Wararam Worawihan - Chachoengsao

Due to the Red Shirt protest in Bangkok. we decided to change our plan of staying 2 nights in Bangkok. Hence from Chiangmai, we took the plane back to Bangkok, but since our flight is 9pm hence we decided to go to the temple which we always wanted to visit~~~Wat Sothon (for details of the temple, pls follow this link to my previous post~~

Arrived at BBK airport around 1.30pm. I went to the tourist information counter and ask them if i can make ip back to the airport before 7pm. The nice lady say no problem and wrote for me the name of temple in thai so that i can show it to the taxi driver. No time to waste, i get to the taxi stand and show it to the lady and she arrange for me a taxi who is willing to bring me there, returned trip at 1500b.On the way to Chachoengsao we passed by several checks stand guarded by the army and we can sense the tension around.

The whole journey is about 1hour, and we were amazed how beautiful the temple can be! It may be the oldest temple in Chachoengsao, it's simply gorgeous! The Luang Pho Sothon is Enshrined inside the new gigantic hall and the whole place is crowded by many devotees from all over Thailand
