Wat Prachumrat (GC2D5PM) is one of nearly 500 geocaches in Thailand. This urban Micro Cache takes treasure hunters outside of Bangkok to the district of Lam Kuk Ka. It was published just last month and has only been logged once so far.
Geocachers visiting the cache will discover a Buddhist temple nearby. The three story gold Buddha you see to your left sits inside.
The geocacher who hid this cache, JamieZel, is the owner of 33 geocaches.
He says, “I love how Geocaching helps people explore what is around them. The place you drive past hundreds of times but never take the time to stop and look. Wat Prachumrat is a great place to stop and see a part of Thailand that most just quickly drive by. Yes there are many temples and each one is beautiful but this one had an interesting twist. A huge statue of Buddha. The temple is very peaceful and one that I go past a lot while taking the daughters out to a wake board park.”
He goes on to say, “I hope over the years to draw more locals and tourists out of the suburban jungle to see the beauties that Thailand has to offer and use Geocaching as a tool to do so.”
There are now more nearly 1.2 million geocaches around the world. You can explore all the Geocaches of the Week here.
