It was a great trip at Wat Pho temple, both me and my girl friend was shocked by the Buddha temple scence. Simply amazing.

The temple is really nice and the Buddhas are great. Sadly the main attraction, the reclined Buddha is crowed with tourists and it is hard to get good overall view. But the rest of the temple is worth the entrance fee (100 b/person).

National Palace was a must-see but I enjoyed Wat Pho even more because it was less crowded giving us more of a chance to really explore the grounds. We went late afternoon on a weekday, so perhaps timing contributed to the thinner crowds. The site...More

Temple was not as crowded, Buddha was MASSIVE. The location was easy to get to. Yes ;you must remove your shoes, but they provide shoe bags.

Asia is a place of temples. They’re fascinating. The Reclining Buddha is interesting to see. He’s huge! I took a video of the body and a picture of his feet.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around

While the grounds are somewhat wheelchair friendly, the temples themselves are not. All temples are entered by stepping over a threshold and it is poor etiquette to step on the threshold. So even if one could get up to the... More
