The reclining buda is very impressive, you can not imagine the size until you see it in front of you.

Good for first time visitor. Only the reclining Buddha is so packed. But I still able to find few quiet Buddha pavilions for a quiet prayer.

The Reclining Buddha is very majestic and a spiritual experience. I would strongly advise the tourists visiting there to show more respect to Thai religion. Many foreigners lay down in the temple to rest or be in a position that point their toes at the Buddha. Needless to say these actions are extremely disrespectful. It is important to understand and...

Even as the #2 attraction in BKK, this temple can be called a haven of tranquility. The main attraction is obviously the big man himself, but the surrounding grounds deserve at least the same amount of your attention. Stroll between the temples dedicated to the kings Rama I-IV, have a peak inside the school, feed a cat... The entrance fee... More
