Wat Pho, known as the Temple of Reclining Buddha is located behind the spectacular Temple of Emerald Buddha. Wat Pho is regarded as the largest temple in Bangkok tourist attractions.
The temple is very famous for its huge and marvelous statue of Buddha reclined on a gold leaf. Viewing this statue is nothing short of a surreal experience. Wat Pho is said to have the highest number of statues of Buddha than any other temple in Bangkok.
The reclining Buddha of Wat PHO has become something of a cultural symbol for Thailand and certainly should not be missed.

I’ll say the obvious and point out my disappointment in the pillars they have in the temple with the reclining Buddha. Would have made for an amazing panoramic shot otherwise! Your entry fee gets you a complementary bottle of water. There are also fountains to refill water if you so desire. That’s more than can be said of other temples. My little one had a great time dropping coins in the 108 urns as an offering. Its significance was lost on her but she loved it nonetheless. Food, drinks and dessert available right on the grounds. Several fountains fill the air with calming sounds of water flowing. Surrounding temples around the main one are more low key so you feel less awkward if you’re setting up for a selfie or otherwise not being a religious devotee. In the courtyard we were also treated to some school aged girls practicing folk dances. They weren’t in costume or anything but it was still a nice treat! Not sure if it’s an everyday occurrence though - we visited on a Saturday.
There really isn't much you can say... This place is amazingly beautiful. if you're lucky enough to go when it's not super crowded it actually is quite serene. Definitely one of the highlights...an absolute do not miss. Something completely unexpected are the feet. These amazing intricate patterns are so beautiful. The enormity of this too. It's overwhelming and it's Beauty is just to behold.... I'm not sure about photos of Buddha, although they do allow you to take them, I will only post two of the Buddha. *They also do not allow shawls as a way of covering, it must be a shirt ladies... So a cap sleeve Maxi is perfect and cool enough on the hot days. No tanks or spaghetti straps.
Situated half a kilometre from the Bangkok Grand Palace. The ticket will cost you TBH 100 and a bottle of water is included in the same. Shoes are not allowed inside where the statue is laid however the workers at the temple will give you poly bags to carry the shoes. It’s is required to cover your body before entering so no short clothes advised. In case you are wearing something short you will be required to wear something that appears to be like a lab coat. Once you gain access to the statue I’m confident you will appreciate how magnificent it is. However due the pillars surrounding it you will not get a clear shot!! Hopefully you go there when it’s not as crowded.
Beautiful and somewhere you should try to visit while in Bangkok. I took a private taxi to visit all the temples I could as I was only there for a couple of days. All of them were far different to the chaos of Bangkok and were nice and serene. I would recommend if your in the area If it's been helpful please hit like!
Well worth taking your time and wandering round the courtyards as well as looking at the main attraction. It was surprisingly peaceful in the courtyards around the central temple despite so many tourists. We were lucky enough to sit down in the central temple just before some of the monks cane in to chant. A very Zen and humbling experience. Nice that farangs are allowed to sit in the front as well (unlike the Grand Palace temple where the front is Thais only, not that I mind that).
