Mansion Houses & Holy Ghosts: Bangkok’s Chinatown on Instagram

© Emily Lush 2015

What do an ancient temple and a contemporary boutique hotel have in common? More than you might think. Bangkok’s Yaowarat Road is a visual feast. On my first visit to the famous Chinatown area, I got to know two incredible buildings: the Shanghai Mansion Hotel and Wat Traimit (otherwise known as the Temple of the Golden Buddha). One is a place for sleeping, the other a site of worship. Both are exquisitely decorated and a lot of fun to photograph.
