I went to this temple around 9 in the morning, not so many people there. The reclining Buddha was very beautiful and longest one in Bangkok. I got a very nice Thai massage inside the temple which was a great experience too.

Too many people. Its like a sweated packed public bath. Tickets are normally sold out by noon. Long waiting time. Give it a miss if you in a rush for time.

I didn't know about this massage school, so I was surpised to find it in the Wat Pho temple. It made for a lovely way to finish off a long hot day of sight-seeing. We had to wait in the reception area for around 20...More
