Learned much from my 30 minutes tour around the WAT. I would recommend to those wanting to visit a temple on limited time.

The place is located near to the Grand Palais, very clean, 100 bht entrance. A lot of history of Budha, well explain even you do not have a guide, need to take the time minimum 2 hours. Freshwater free at the end. Don't forget your camera and go early for the heater and also to avoid all the group... be dressed correctly otherwhise you .
cannot enter. Very good things to do ...

Be aware at the exist the taxi and tk tuk try to scam the tourist with their price. Go further in the street and have a taxi metter. Ex: from there to Centralworld is 150 to 200 Bath.

Part of our day tour of historical Ayutthara. A fascinating place; we visited 6 quite different temples and to see the 19 metre gold Buddha up close was wonderful. We were pleased to be able to donate a bag of rice to the monks.

Good experience!
We used the boat tours which left us close by . Had to walk a few mins to get to the temple which was very busy as you probably can imagine .
As you pass the reclining buddah you will see people putting coins into coper pots . I didn’t know what is was until I googled later that day . They believe that the 108 coins dropped in the pots are the number of 108 positive action that Buddah did before reaching purity .
So get your 108 coins at the machine for 20 baht as apparently that will bring you luck in life ...

Oh the inclined Buddah you must be asking yourself by now ?! Yes pretty big and gold as in the pictures ehhehe

I would recommend getting a guide !

We went to the temple by closing time but a good plan is to go in around 3pm-3.30pm, walk around, get one of those amazing foot massages at the massage institute on site. After that, visit the reclining buddha by closing time. Then you'll at least be able to see something and take pictures without 54153108 tourists being on them ;-) Be ready to be amazed by this beauty!

Awesome in the true sense of the word. I was left speechless by the scale of this real gold Buddha. Take time to appreciate this, don't just rush past a as a tick off your list.

Absolutely worth a trip, in fact we visited Wat Pho over the Grand Palace.

Stunning grounds, amazing images of the Buddha and plenty more to see here than the name let’s on. The rest of the temple is fascinating and grand in scale and decoration.

Temple is must to visit while travel to bangkok. The one thing would like to add as they give orchid garlands which are offered to god if asked. Good place to visit. Short skirts and sleevless are not at all allowed. Be strict while wearing clothes for this temple visit.
