Video: Nine Temples in Bangkok

Have a free day in Bangkok? Try a "Wai Pra Gao Wat", or merit-making pilgrimage to nine of Bangkok's most important and famous temples in one day.

Nine is a lucky number in Thailand. The Thai word for nine, "gao", sounds like the verb for "to take a step forward". It is also the regnal number of the beloved late King.

If you can visit and pray at nine temples in one day, it is said that your wish will come true!

And if not, you will still have explored some of Bangkok's most fascinating and beautiful holy places.
