Would recommend going to visit this temple. You need a couple of hours to enjoy the surroundings. Dress code is important, long trousers or skirts and cover up the arms.

This is a must to visit place when you are in Thailand. It is amazing and wonderful to see this very large and tall reclining Buddha.

A pleasant and colorful temple much less crowded that the Grand Palace and its thousands of tourists. Good opportunities to take photos without tourists all around you. The reclining Buddha is spectacular. The gift shop is outrageously expensive. They asked for $37 for a wooden...More

If you haven't already seen enough buddhas this a good place to come and see some more. There are restrictions on photographing the more highly regarded statues.

The Temple of reclining Buddha is one amazing location. In spite of being a temple, it has so much to see around. The beautiful carvings, colours, the traditional touch on every minute thing - is beautiful! The doorways, the statue of Buddha, his smiling face...More

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

spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
