If you visit Bangkok you have to visit the reclining buddha, it is famous for the size and it is all covered in gold. For the buddhist this is a religious place so please show respect. enjoy !

The temple and the surrounding area are beautiful! The gardens are filled with colorful flowers and waterfalls. The architecture of the pagodas is amazing and the actual statue of the reclining Buddha are wonderous!

This Buddha was so much bigger than I had imagined and so shiny! Of course I knew it was made of gold but just got blown away by it all the same.

The statue of reclining Buddha in the main temple in really impressive: each single detail of the statue is done with such meticulous precision. The territory around the main temple is very beautiful: numerous Buddha statues of different sizes and in different poses, amazing ceramics mosaic, small fountains. And moreover: free water and free wifi:) a must visit place!
