Wat Pho Reclining Buddha, Bangkok Reviews

  • My favourite sight in Bangkok. Heaps better than the Royal Palace. There are still many people, but more like a regular tourist sight and completely overcrowded. The main Buddha statue is incredible, everyone should have seen it when in Bangkok. I also enjoyed the main temple which is not too loud despite the many visitors. I did the guided tour which was very nice. The guide spoke decent English and showed me the main spots within the huge area. And with only 300Bath it's not too pricey. In addition, they offer a massage service which was quite busy when I was there ans a fortune teller which is expensive with 600Bath but fun if you are into those kind of things.

  • The Buddha statue is huge and really beautiful. You will fill being tiny in front of it. The hall is less lighted and has many pillars. So not many places where you can get pictures. And there are likes to take pictures at right places. The entrance fee for foreigners is 100 BHT and they also give one small water bottle.

  • I grew up around this temple since I was young. The temple are very old and have lots of historical stories e.g. It is the first school for traditional Thai massage. The temple are well managed and maintained in a very good condition. One of the MUST visit temple in Bangkok.

  • This is probably the nicest temple I have visited. Being Sungkran it was extremely busy but still had a feeling of serenity. The laying golden Buddha is the absolute highlight and smaller wat for prayers is quiet. On the outside of the temple walls are numerous stalls with food and other items and in the close vicinity numerous really nice restaurants.

  • Visited the temple on a day trip, very busy area. To get into the temple is a long wait, the line to get your tickets takes forever as there is truly no line system in place. There is signs everywhere about pick pockets which makes you very nervous. After purchasing your tickets, you walk around all the interesting areas. To enter the Temple you have to remove your shoes. It is insanely humid and hot in the temple, i recommend you have plenty of water with you. Also you must be properly covered, no shorts allowed. The architectural beauty of this place will have you in awe, simply amazing. The Reclining Buddha stretches the full length of the temple. As you enter and walk around the back, you have the opportunity of viewing the full body. A must see if you are in the area.
