Wat Pho
Wat Pho (the Temple of the Reclining Buddha), or Wat Phra Chetuphon, is located behind the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and a must do for any first time visitor in Bangkok. It one of the largest temple complexes in the city and famed for its giant reclining Buddha that measures 46 metres long and is covered in gold leaf. It an easy ten minute walk between here and the Grand Palace, and we recommend coming to Wat Pho second, because even though the golden Buddha here is just as popular many people do not take the time to wander around the rest of the complex so the experience tends to be far more relaxing.

This is also a great place to get a traditional Thai massage. Wat Pho is often considered the leading school of massage in Thailand, so you really are in good hands here.The highlight for most people visiting Wat Pho is the Reclining Buddha. The figures here are impressive 15 metres tall, 46 metres long, so large it feels like it has been squeezed into the building. The Buddha feet are 5 metres long and exquisitely decorated in mother of pearl illustrations of auspicious laksanas (characteristics) of the Buddha. 108 is a significant number, referring to the 108 positive actions and symbols that helped lead Buddha to perfection. You willneed to take your shoes off to enter, and if you would like a little good luck, we recommend purchasing a bowl of coins at the entrance of the hall which you can drop in the 108 bronze bowls which line the length of the walls.
