This is my fourth trip to Bangkok and I had to come back here. Stunning. Really is beautiful but go early to avoid the heat. Entrance fee is cheap. If it is your first time, suggest taking a guide. There is some information in English but it is very limited. This is such an important attraction in Bangkok, you will miss a lot of the detail otherwise. The THB 200.00 entrance fee (January, 2022) includes a free small bottle of water. You will need it! Really well looked after, clean and well kept. Wear easy shoes so you can slip them on and off easily. Ladies make sure you are dressed appropriately. Wat Arun is nearby across the river so combine the two. If you are interested Museum Siam and the flower market are also in the same area. On previous trips, being one of the top attractions Wat Pho was packed. So busy. During the C-19 pandemic, we had the place to ourselves with maybe a few other visitors. You could really appreciate the beauty and take in the Wat. We were also able to get really good photographs.

Great history to this place all explained through notices around the site. Wife had a massage at the massage school which she described as possibly the best she has had.

Totally worth it to get a guide! We learned a lot and would have not known what to look for without him! Gorgeous temple campus with lots of buildings!

This complex has MUCH more than just the Reclining Buddha. It is a large complex and it is easy to miss a lot of it. There are a number of Buddhas / Temples on the grounds. Not unusually, also some beautiful Bonsai.

Gorgeous temples, never seen anything like it before. Thailand is really beautiful and not many first-timers think about the temples and skip along to the islands instead--BIG MISTAKE! Make sure to visit here. Tuk-tuks aren't too expensive, and just remember to bring sunscreen since we got a little bit red :)

Wat Pho, site of the reclining Buddha. Really worth a visit, the golden Buddha is massive and really hard to photograph for this reason. The site itself gets really busy and it gets really baking hot in the summer months so suggest arriving early to miss the scoring heat and the crowds. Once inside you can walk round the buddha which is under shade. Breathtakingly beautiful and really worth a visit. You can't really get a sense of the scale of the statue from photos, you need to see it for yourself. Its 46meters long. wow!!!!
