There is a lot more to see here than the Giant Buddha itself (which is most impressive) and we enjoyed wandering further afield in the complex and had some impressive spaces almost to ourselves. there is a lot to see.

Highly recommend! You can spend hours there and there are other temples inside to see. You can even have the chance to pray with monks.

First thing you see when you enter is the gold Reclining Buddha, which is actually fairly amazing to look at. It extends fairly long and the feet are gigantic. That is what most people come to see, but the complex is even bigger than that....More

Although the main highlight is the reclining Buddha, make sure you also explore and experience the surrounding temples. I noticed it to be much more peaceful and relaxing.

It was packed and so hot the day we visited 34C and the heat with no shade made it less pleasant. Plan to visit early before the tourists arrive. The Budha was amazing and so big you could not photograph it in one frame.

Banglamphu
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

While the grounds are somewhat wheelchair friendly, the temples themselves are not. All temples are entered by stepping over a threshold and it is poor etiquette to step on the threshold. So even if one could get up to the... More
