Lonely Planet review

A crowd in this part of town usually means a bargain market is nearby. But here the continuous activity revolves around six Hindu shrines credited with making this commercial corridor a success. It’s a fascinating place to come and just watch the way modern Thais have pragmatically adapted their beliefs – and their hopes – to the perceived reality that success breeds success, especially with the deities on your side. For details about all six shrines, download the excellent ‘Deities@Ratchaprasong’ guide from www.heartofbangkok.com.
