This was our first Wat whilst in Bangkok and was amazing...

We walked over from the water taxi and were not disappointed it is on the top 10 things to do in Bangkok for a reason.

The price to get in was 100 Baht per person (and this includes a free bottle of water).

We walked into a fairly empty courtyard and wandered around, we saw lots of small Chedis (when reading up these are burryial shrines that contain ashes of monks or various artefacts like photos of Buddha eta, later you will see the 4 Great Chedis that contain royal ashes and remains of sacred Buddha images these are amazing spires that are decorated with porcelain mosaics that are stunning.

The hall for the reclining Buddha is rather understated and sits in the corner but just before you get to this check out the farang guards (complete with top hats).

The Buddha is amazing but be prepared to wait and queue for amazing pictures, unfortunately for us the feet were undergoing some work and half was covered but it was still amazing.

On the backside of the Buddha you can buy 108 coins for 40 Baht and place one in each bowl for a bit of good luck. And again some snaps of the back of the Buddha (which is cool too).

The rest of the site has various halls and effigies of Buddha to view as well as a lot of Chinese warriors and generals to guard the area such as the Bot (which is the ordination hall for the Monks).

We didn't find the massage school bit we were hit on a couple of time by the numerous school kids who are taken there to practice their English and will ask you various questions in English that they really don't understand the answers to (try and avoid as they will tie you up, This also happened at when we visited the bridge over the river Kwai and we were got 4 times... so be warned)

Above all I would say this us an amazing place to visit and a good few hours is needed to do it justice (unless your like my party and like taking thousands of pictures then maybe about 4 hours) and unlike other places in Bangkok at 100 bahts (£2.50 approx) is really well worth the money.

After seeing the amazing Wat Pho we wandered the complex and then signed up for a massage at the massage school. This was a great experience and reasonably priced. The massages are classic Thai massages with lots of pressure and definitely have that pleasure/pain dynamic. I really enjoyed my foot massage and it was much needed after walking around all day. After, they give you a tea to drink and send you on your way.

This was truly a medicinal massage meant to work out problem spots. It was not relaxing at all. Expect to have your technician climb atop you and use knees and elbows to work on problem spots. HOWEVER, when the two hours was over, my body felt better than it had in months.
