Enormous reclining, gold Buddha. Very crowded when we visited in the late morning. Shoes must be removed before entering, though you can bring in water bottles.

This is a beautiful place to wander around. It's very close by to the Grand Palace so I'd recommend to see both places together. The temples are beautiful and the reclining Buddha is very impressive. You will find people outside telling you that the temple...More

Pretty wat complex, which is much more than the main attraction. The huge reclining buddha was vast. Loved the detail on his feet. The complex surrounding the reclining buddha is also very interesting and worth a wander round.

You read all these top reviews, and then it still exceeds expectations! The major site is the Reclining Buddha which took my breath away. Yes, dress conservatively as for any temple. Suggest shoes that are easy to slip on and off. I arrived at 8:30am...More

Having 2 kids in tow walking around temples isn’t easy in the searing heat but there was enough variety at this temple to keep them interested. Personally I though the sculptures and architecture amazing.

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

While the grounds are somewhat wheelchair friendly, the temples themselves are not. All temples are entered by stepping over a threshold and it is poor etiquette to step on the threshold. So even if one could get up to the... More
