Wat Pho Reclining Buddha - Review

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.

Wat Pho Reclining Buddha is one of the attractions added in Bangkok itinerary 2 days and Bangkok itinerary 3 days. Must visit this awesome attraction.

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.

  • This was my favorite sight in Bangkok, perhaps even more than the Grand Palace. This place is regarded as the most sacred temple in Thailand. It is truly fascinating to see the stunning detail in this temple. The Emerald Buddha is remarkable and certainly worth the visit to see. There are a number of fortune tellers outside, I received mostly positive fortunes, which is indeed a delight.

  • Beautiful place. 100 baht entry fees you will get a free bottle of water with it. Reclining Buddha is a must watch but there many other beautiful idols too. Definitely a must watch place

  • My mom and I enjoyed the whole trip to Wat Phra. The temple itself is grand and the reclining budha statue leaves you in awe. They also had another place where the monks were changing the prayers. It was a beautiful experience. The temple who is beautiful and rich in heritage that it leaves you in awe. Every corner leaves you surprised with the fact that thai have so well maintained their places of pilgrimage. They also provide one bottle of drinking water and bags to keep your shoes. There's a souvenir shop and a massage parlour too. Make sure you dress appropriately before going.

  • The tourists here are somehow even more horrifying than at the Grand Palace. Saw a man take his shoes and socks off, stretch his wretched, crusty feet across the entire bench (you aren't allowed to sit on the stairs, so this was a pretty inconsiderate move) and pick his toenails. Several others had their shirts lifted above their hefty, glistening guts -- legs splayed outward -- fanning them with pamphlets from the sacred site. Try to go as early as possible to miss the heat and the mobs of tourists. The scenery is great - I loved the murals and sculptures.
