This place is gorgeous at night. If you time it to see the leaning Buddha around 5 or 530pm and stick around until sundown the crowd clears out and it’s the prettiest place ever. The lighting is majestically thoughtful and the sounds are subtle and engaging.

Highly recommend especially if you only have the time and desire for one temple.

A very very historic temple and a must see for a visit to Bangkok. A tour guide is recommended but not a must.

The Temple of the Reclining Buddha is a beautiful and peaceful place! The Reclinging Buddha is the largest Buddha I've ever seen and the surrounding gardens and temple have so much detail and beauty. I wish we would've been able to spend more time here!

This is a classic tourist destination that well-worth the visit. It's one of my favorites in Bangkok. If you only have a short time in BKK, make sure to put this one on your list.

We arrived very late in the day, but a very friendly tour guide ran up to us and said he could give us an A+ tour in the short amount of time we had, and he sure did! I can't remember what we paid for the tour, but it wasn't much. WELL worth it. Don't try and wander on your own. You'll miss so much!

He very patiently explained all of the Buddha poses, the difference between Chinese & Thai Buddhism and showed us the best of the best. We learned the etiquette, participated in a prayer around an amazing and ancient Bodhi Tree and felt like we had a quick and useful immersion. So glad we did this.

Tip: make sure you know when each site opens and closes. This site closed at 5:30. We had also wanted to visit the Grand Palace, but it closed at 3:30. If we had time, we could have had a traditional thai massage and seen a bit more. When we arrived at 4:45/5pm, there was no line-up at all.
