Wat Phra Kaew - Review
Bangkok is said to be the land of temples. Wat Phra Kaew is regarded as one of the most sacred temples of Bangkok which hosts Bangkok tourism. The temple is located in the centre of Bangkok attracting several tourists every year. The main building of the temple consists of a huge statue of Emerald Buddha. You can surely explore many important parts of the life of Buddha through this temple.
The statue of Buddha is in a meditating position and about 14 century old. It makes sense to hire a guide or avail the audio guide to take in more information about the place. One thing that needs to be remembered is that it is a sacred place, and photography is strictly prohibited here. Wat Phra Kaew will surely provide you with ultimate relaxation and a complete peace of mind.

Wat Phra Kaew, Bangkok Reviews
Must visit attraction in Bangkok. Every part is so beautiful. You will feel like every thing is like a scenary. It's so beautiful. Take your time and roam each part don't rush or ignore because everything is so beautiful. You will definitely love it. Located inside the city but still so well maintained.
It's a beautiful temple that one should visit without fail. It's my favorite place in Bangkok. The temple can get crowded but it's worth the effort. Buddha's statue is magnificent and so is the temple. There are many restaurants nearby to enjoy Thai food. Best to visit by boat.
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.
love that place so much. I wish I would visit it again. Once I walk around the temple I feel a different spirit. When I was able to visit it I did not know much about East Asian religions or about Buddhism.
