Wat Pho was one of the Bangkok Temples most crowded with tourists. I visited it with a Portuguese I met at the Hostel and 2 sweet Brazilian girls and we took around 2 hours to visit the complex.
Wat Pho stands at a complex full of beautiful stupas, so detailed that you can spend minutes just admiring it and figuring out so much stuff that is going on the decoration of it. I haven’t seen a temple like this before so I was amazed. The ticket price is 100 Baht (2,5€) and you have the right of a water bottle. It’s open from 8.00am 5.00pm.
Wat Pho is the temple where I saw one of the biggest reclining Buddhas and that’s the reason why it is also known as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha or Wat Phra Chetuphon. This Buddha measures 46 metres long and is covered in gold leaf. It stands next to the Grand Palace of Bangkok and It’s one of the largest temple complexes in the city.
The Buddha’s feet are 5 metres long and exquisitely decorated in mother-of-pearl illustrations. Remember to dress properly and no shoes are allowed. This is also a great place to get a traditional Thai massage. Wat Pho is often considered the leading school of massage in Thailand, so you really are in good hands here.
Besides Wat Pho, there are many other beautiful temples to visit in Bangkok.
