Unlike it's neighbouring Grand Palace/Temple of the emerald Buddha which is around 700m away and very expensive to get in, the Temple of the reclining Buddha is much more peaceful. Whilst still having many tourists, they are much more spread out over the area. You...More

Didn't have any expectations when we went to visit so was quite astounded by the sheer size of the statue. And the temple was less crowded so we had time to properly appreciate the sights, architecture and atmosphere. Highly recommended!

This is an amazing temple of Buddha in reclining position. The Buddha statue is 46 Meyers long and can't beseen at one go. Entry fees to visit this temple is 50 Bhat. This is a must visit place in Bangkok.

There's not much to add to what other travelers have already said - this temple in the old area of huge reclining Buddha is simply a must visit attraction in Bangkok. Don't miss it!

This temple was part of our half day tour in Bangkok. It is a beautiful temple and is worth every minute we spent there.

We visited the temple with the Bangkok Midnight Food Tour and the guide gave us some great insight into the story behind the temple and the Kings of Thailand, as well as cultural influences that are present and their origin.

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
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around

What out for the tuk-tuk drivers who will tell you it is closed or opens much later. They will then try to sell you on a tour to other places. Its only about 10 minutes walking from the dock.
