After the hustle and bustle of other attractions in Bangkok, we found Wat Pho to be an oasis of calm. The admission price included a refreshing drink of water that we enjoyed whilst sitting on the wall of a small flower bed before entering the cool air of the temple itself. Along with cloaks to allow visitors to dress appropriately,... More

The reclining Buddha is stunning and the grounds where it is located are beautiful too. Give yourself at least an hour to wander around. A complimentary bottle of water is included in the admission price (100b), they have cloaks for woman to wear if required and bags to carry your shoes.

Beautiful temple. 100 baht to get in, but they give you a coupon for free water with your ticket. Tip: dress for the weather, not the temples. They have free cloaks, skirts, etc. to cover you up right before you walk inside. I also recommend going at night (although you won't be able to go see the Reclining Buddha). We... More

It's very hot at both this temple and Grand Palace, be prepared! The reclining buddha is an awesome sight. The interior walls of the building are interesting too. No need to buy specific clothing as it is provided free. Water is in abundance for free too.

The reclining Buddha is the main attraction, but my favorite is the 4 stupas in the compound - the final resting places for the first 4 kings- Rama 1 to 4. The intricate porcelain detailing is incredible. The temple compound is beautiful with statues brought back from China centuries ago, gold embellished pagodas and topiary trees. Insider tip - go...
