You hear about the Reclining Buddha (Wat Po) but this is a must see in person. This is a very long Buddha made of gold. It will take you couple of hours to tour this site including other temples inside the walls.

how the golden bhudhas were made, how did bhudhism start, when was the temple built and why. all these questions and many more details on bhudhism can be obtained by visiting the temple. most of all the inner peace in the soul can be realised.

Lovely place, close to busier tourist attractions. I liked the fact that it is quiet & it offers a breath of fresh air in the middle of the hot and touristy Bangkok.

Beautiful place to visit in Thailand. It gets crowded in mornings so it is better to start little early at this place.

While less majestic than the Grand Palace, it's so much less crowded. And just as exotic and interesting.

Great tourist attraction with easy access to the river ferry. You have to take your shoes off before entering, so wear shoes with socks underneath. Ladies bring a shawl to cover your shoulders if you're not appropriately attired. Pants are best for men and women....More

Awesome experience witnessing and viewing this first hand and all for just 100 baht. Bonus that it's just a 5 mins walk to the Grand Palace.

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
