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.

Wat Phra Kaew will surely provide you with ultimate relaxation and a complete peace of mind.

Wat Phra Kaew, Bangkok Reviews
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.
Shoes should be taken off and put in the plastic bag before entering the temple. The statue is huge and its every detail is amazing. You can donate 20 baht to get a bowl of 108 coins and put the coins to the pods aside equally to be blessed.
Remember don't use hot pants and you can see kind of shirts. This place is very magnificent. Inside the temple, there is reclining Buddha statue.. Very big.. Seems it is coated with gold. So many photogenic spot here.. This place is represent Thailand's culture.
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.
A must see place in Bangkok.. Entrance is 100THB...you need to take your shoes off and put it in a plastic to enter various room.. Including seeing the Reclining Buddha... I think it is best to hire a tour guide so that you understand each section of this temple... Dress accordingly e.g not too much skin.. As it is a place for worshipping too...
