Wat Phra Kaew, Bangkok Reviews - Write a Review

  • Pretty spectacular views. Note that shorts and sleeveless clothing are not allowed to enter the temple. Some vendors sell scarf like cloth and pants right outside the entrance; one has to bargain or the price offered initially are usually racket high and unreasonable. The architect and buildings around the area are pretty impressive. A great spot to help know better about the Buddhist culture.

  • This is my favourite temple in Bangkok! It gets super busy though so go early or when it’s raining! The spires here are just so cool and there is a ton to see and do all in the temple complex. Make sure to walk all around. The little tree oasis are each beautiful and unique as well!

  • Not far from the temple of Emerald Buddha/Grand Palace, Wat Pho which is the oldest and biggest temple complex in Bangkok seems attractive to tourists from everywhere. The temple looks peaceful with large numbers of beautiful pagodas, Buddha statues lining around the cloisters and other chapels. Shrine chapel of the giant Reclining Buddha is the highlight of the temple. Great!

  • Wow! It has to be seen to be believed - such a majestic work. If you visit Bangkok make sure it is on your short list. It's across the river from the other amazing temple, Wat Arun. The famous palace is close as well. You can cover the "big three" in one go.

  • Wonderful, traditional temple in Bangkok. At the time I visited there was restoration ongoing. Many of the Wats as well as the Grand Palace are under renovation for upcoming ceremonies for the late King. Do not let this stop you. While you may not be able to visit the Grand Palace or the Emerald Buddha, the nearby Wat Pho is still a delight. The Reclining Buddha is an amazing site. Once was sees how enormous it is you will still be astounded. I was expecting something large, but was still astounded by the size. A grand site and one that should not be missed.
