Wat Phra Chetuphon, or more commonly known as Wat Pho, is a Buddhist temple complex in the Phra Nakhon district of Bangkok, Thailand. The complex houses the largest reclining Buddha in the world, as well as a highly revered golden Buddha. Wat Pho is also a center of traditional Thai medicine and massage, and is home to the Thai Traditional Medical and Massage School. If you're looking for a good place to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, Wat Pho is definitely the place to go.

Start early and go first to the Reclining Buddha, and you will avoid the crowds. The rest of the temple is much less crowded, at least before noon, and we had nearly every vihara all to ourselves, and even the Phra Ubosot was rather empty. it took us a good few hours to stroll around and let everything sink in. It is a beautiful temple, and there is much to see. Do not forget water, a hat and sun protection.

It was already the second time that I visited the famous Wat Pho. The craft of the people who formed this massive Buddha is really impressive.
To get more details, I suggest to book a guide who can give you some background information.

Reclining Buddha statue has impressive foot print . When i stare at the detail, i can see and feel and touch the intention of artist which would like to create this for last. This is just one spot that i like. More places to enjoy such as main hall with bronze Buddha statue. The presentation is so elaborate.

Brought friends who we’re visiting Thailand for the first time. Went in around 430 in the afternoon (no ticket charge), and there were very few people in the entire temple.
We had the entire place to ourselves and it had been newly renovated for the funeral of His Majesty Rama ๙
The sheer massive size of the reclining Buddha is quite impressive, not to mention how beautiful the image is, adorned in gold paint and gold leaf.
This is a “must do” on any list for Bangkok, whether a first time visitor or long time resident.
