Wat Pho Reviews
Must-See Site in Bangkok: the Grand Palace District is dense with temples and other sites of interest. It can be overwhelming, and reasonable to plan more than 1 day to take it in without developing..... more »
You have to pay to get in but it is well organised and the queues were not too long. The buddha is amazing and this is well worth a visit. more »
Highly recommended. Way better the Grand Palace. You can see there huge laying Buddha and whole complex of sanctuary. The entrance ticket is 200 B. You can easily spend there 2 hours. Walking distance to the rest of main attractions on Bangkok
This temple was huge!. There was so many beautiful things to look at. I spent around two hours but could have easily spent another hour. The reclining Buddha was awesome. It was housed in a beautiful temple with artwork covering the entire inside of the building. Women are required to cover their ankles and shoulders but they have scarves they borrow out if you do not have anything. It is definitely worth a visit.
