this is where the Temple of the Emerald Buddha is located that is carved from a single block of jade stone! I wasn't able to stay here for long as it's so crowded though the temple where the Emerald Buddha resides looks stunning!

It was my second time to visit Wat Pho. I was lost somewhere and then luckily reached there. Please wear full sleeve shirts and trouser to visit this place. All other visiting places are also nearby.

Went over Chinese New Year and absolutely loved seeing the temples of Bangkok. Despite of the holiday, it wasn't crowded at all. This is a must see!

You will probably see this temple together with the Grand Palace. Come early to avoid the biggest crowds and heat. The whole temple complex is quite big if compact, and there are many buildings you may want to pay attention to. Go to the main bot of the Emerald temple first, as soon as the complex is open, and you may experience it without too many other visitors around. Then you may wander around all the beautiful buildings and murals. It took us a good few hours to take it all in :)
