We went in to see the enormous reclining Buddha, but ended up wandering the rest of the complex for over an hour. We loved the hall of golden statues and the temple cats hanging out everywhere. We visited near closing time on a weekday so crowds were low, this really allowed us to wander and see things without massive crowds... More

My second visit to see this beautiful reclining buddha and each time, I am amazed by the beauty of it. If you only want to see one buddha, this is definitely the one to choose.

There is a special relaxed atmosphere at this place. It is A giant statue, just as promised in all of the tourist books. When we were visiting at the place, there were traditional performances. It was really something special. In general, the place worth visiting. Do not be tempted to skip it. A little tip. If you ask people on... More

I studied up on attractions to see when I found I was going on a business trip to Bangkok Thailand. I knew I had to see this Wat, but was totally unprepared for the size and grandeur of this statue. It is truly breathtaking! You just have to see it!

Beautiful! Entrance fee is only 100 baht, nothing compared to the hefty 500B to emerald buddha. Lots of things to see. Beware of all scammers, "guides", and thefts. If you have valuable shoes, put them at different places at temple entrances, so you dont get stolen. Overall, a nice visit, not to be missed.
