The complex itself is quite large and the structures are very ornate. Worth a walk around the various buildings themselves but the real highlight is the reclining buddha. It is massive and was having some repairs when we visited. It also gets really busy so...More

There are a lot of fascinating things inside this temple. I get that the tour guides are likely your predominant purveyor of information about the place, but I do think the facility could invest in a summer intern who can put together a few placards...More

Nearby the grand palace, wat pho is probably the next stop in everyone's mind. It is in walking distance. Wat phos giant reclining Buddha is breath taking a necessary visit after grand palace.

Went sightseeing and saw Wat Pho and the Royal Palace. I have to say both are amazing, Wat Pho consists of the buddha statue but the whole are surrounding it as beautiful as well. Definitely worth a visit!

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
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
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around

The best way would be to hire a local cab to get there. Read up before hand about the temple and you won't require a guide. Spend about 2 hrs. here. Entry fee is 100 bhat.
