Wat Pho Reviews
This is a must for anyone travelling to Bangkok, truly an amazing experience, we spent several hours on site and we are not usually temple type people but this was well worth a visit. Highly recommend... more »
雖然票價要200元，但是有一個截角可以免費換礦泉水，水小小的是臥佛寺專屬包裝，喝完換水處旁邊有飲水機「冰開水」可以自己裝。 臥佛寺中好塞，滿滿的人，不知道是先有房子亦或者是先有佛像，大大的佛就剛好裝在建築物中間呢！ more »Although the price of the ticket to 200 yuan, but there is a cut-off can not be exchanged for minerals springs, water small is the bedroom Buddhist temple specialty packaging, after drinking the water side of the drink water machine "ice water" can be installed on their own. Bedroom Buddhist temple Good plug, full of people, do not know is a house first or there is a Buddha statue first, the Big Buddha is just ready to install the building in the middle of it!
Nice cluster of temples. Many different types with various aesthetics. We came just as it opened to see the large “resting” Buddha. It was very quickly full of tourists about 30 minutes later. It’s an easy walk from the river ferry terminal. You need to bring exact THB amount for the entry tickets because for some weird reason they won’t give you change. There are many cute cats here too! You also get a small bottle of water for free with your ticket.
This is a beautifully maintained temple ground; with the main attraction being a large reclining Budha. It's about a ten minute walk from the Grand Palace; and is much less busy. You will have to remove your shoes upon entry, but you can carry them in a bag if you'd like versus leaving them outside. You are also allowed to bring your camera inside. Make sure you check out the feet which are beautifully covered in pearls; and the hair from the backside. People rush through the back of the statue; but it really has some interesting details!
