Reviewed 6 April 2018

This is a very neat temple and the Reclining Buddha was worth seeing. The price of admission includes a cold bottle of water which was nice and welcomed. You must take off your shoes to see the Buddha, but they give you a bag to carry them in. Quite a few buildings to see in the complex - easy to get to and easy to get a tuk tuk right outside afterwards. Relaxed dress code compared to the requirements for the Grand Palace.

Caught a Grab car from Asok area (paid 200bht) arrived and you get bombarded at the front from vendors wanting you to buy various things. My tip: just ignore them same as the tuk Tuks and taxis.
Reclining Buddha, paid 100bht worth seeing to say you have seen it. Spent around 45 mins - to and hour there.

We took a long tail boat from Sathorn pier, which was a 1 minute walk from Shangri-La. We were able to meander around freely and explore. The Wat Pho temple area is large with lots of things to see. I enjoyed the many statues and there are places to get water and use the facilities. This was a lot less crowded than other spots, which was nice.

Many tuk-tuj drivers will pretend this is shut and suggest going on a tour with them until it opens.

Do not be fooled

We used the hop on off water taxi to get to and from here. 180 bhats per person for a day ticket. Temple was great. Not big but great for a short visit.
