The gardens and the exterior part of the Temple is open at night but the reclining Buddha is closed at this hour of the night. The place was quiet with only a few visitors. The scenes at night enhanced by the well placed lightings were...More

It looks like something out of a history book. An amazing experience. I felt that I was traveling back in time.

There might be a lot of people but it is for a reason. This temple can speak much about Thai culture and how their people value Buddha.

I am not really that into temples but this is pretty impressive. In hindsight, I think that it would be best to check out the other areas of Wat Pho before looking at the Reclining Buddha. It is pretty impressive & definitely worth a look.

I read the description before we visited and so I knew what to expect. However, nothing truly prepares you for the size and scale of it, I was truly in awe. Don't let the crowds put you off, it's a wonderful thing to experience.

A fantastic place for architecture and amazing buddhas which left you feeling quite breathless at their beauty. The gold statues were quite beautiful if not enormous.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,

most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
