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.

Just another tourist trap. You pay a lot of money to wait in line to enter a crowded room with a large reclining figure of Buddha. What’s the point? Paying for that? Worthless

It was a great place to visit. The statue of reclining Buddha is really a huge one. There are other attractions as well within the premises.

Amazing and jaw dropping. Make sure you do this after the Grand palace. We went to the palace then tuk tuk to the lying Buddha and had lunch at an amazing hippie restaurant just outside the Buddha.

I have had many massages at Wat Pho & they are excellent especially in the air conditioned room . I have had just as good a massage in an air conditioned shopping center for half the price & easier to go to either by motor bike Taxi or while in the shopping center.

Impressive and good to say you saw it but that’s about it. Be careful of the usual tourist trap annoyances.

The temple was just extraordinary, so much to see and take in - but get there early! It gets incredibly crowded. Also take some kind of map, and be sure to see the rest of the grounds, it's worth it.

We came here after the Grand Palace and it was a relief to be away from the crazy crowds. It was still busy but much more manageable.

The reclining Buddha is really impressive and the temple grounds are lovely to wander round.

The water included in you ticket is a nice touch as well. There are water refill points to fill you bottle as well if needed.

Bangkok in a modern, crowded, busy, fantastic city. What you may not realize is that there are dozens off absolutely amazing Buddhist and Hindu shrines and temples. If you only get to see two or three, Wat Pho needs to be one of them. It gets crowded as a major tourist destination, but it’s worth it! The major attraction is the 46-meter long, gold leaf clad reclining Buddha. It really is amazing and there are some great photos to be had. Be prepared to remove your shoes when entering the temple (all of them, really). There is also a line of offering and prayer pots along the wall. You can trade in a few baht (the local currency) for small change and drop coins in the pots as you walk. It’s a pretty cool experience, honestly. One thing to take advantage of at Wat Pho: get a Thai massage!!! In the 1800s, the ancient Thai capital of Ayutthaya (go see it too, an hour north of Bangkok) was sacked by Burmese invaders. Most of the manuscripts that held the knowledge of Thai massage were lost. The king at the time, Rama III, had the knowledge carved into stones at Wat Pho to ensure its survival. So, that makes the Wat Pho massage school a really coo place to get an awesome Thai massage. Happy journeys!
