Very impressive temple! Don't miss the huge reclining Buddha,and make sure to wander around the whole different places of the temple.

I think its best to visit an hour or two before sunset,the sunlight is magical over the sculptures and the colors are beautiful.

There is a massage school inside the temple where you can get a traditional Thai massage, be aware that this is not the same as massages in other places in Bangkok.

Gorgeous temples, never seen anything like it before. Thailand is really beautiful and not many first-timers think about the temples and skip along to the islands instead--BIG MISTAKE! Make sure to visit here. Tuk-tuks aren't too expensive, and just remember to bring sunscreen since we got a little bit red :)

Wow
Nov 2021
Wat Pho, site of the reclining Buddha. Really worth a visit, the golden Buddha is massive and really hard to photograph for this reason. The site itself gets really busy and it gets really baking hot in the summer months so suggest arriving early to miss the scoring heat and the crowds. Once inside you can walk round the buddha which is under shade. Breathtakingly beautiful and really worth a visit. You can't really get a sense of the scale of the statue from photos, you need to see it for yourself. Its 46meters long. wow!!!!

Photharam Temple
Feb 2021 • Family
This temple is a temple that Saksit and Phra Dang Wat Photharam built almost 200 years ago and have been worshiped. Regularly, there are many respected people both in the area and outside the area. I want friends to try to pay respect and make merit.

The most famous temple in Bangkok. Known for it's beautiful architecture, well manicured grounds, and the gigantic reclining Buddha. Pay special attention to the bottoms of the reclining Buddha's feet, as they are covered in thousands of embedded mother of pearl.

one of the three iconic temples in Bangkok, a must-see
Oct 2020
Wat Phra Chetuphon aka Wat Pho.

It’s famous for the giant Reclining Buddha and architecture style that quite different from other temples.

A strict dress code applies - Sleeveless shirts, torn shirts, very short blouses, spaghetti-strap blouses, see-through clothes, skin-tight pants, shorts three quarter length pants, and culottes are PROHIBITED.

The entree fee is 200 baht

I suggest the journey for 1-day trip should be:
The Grand Palace >> Tha Tian market >> Wat Pho >> Wat Arun (cross the river) >> Riverside restaurant (cross back for watching sunset view of Wat Arun) >> Khao San Road

Foreigners not welcome

The Wat Pho complex responded to the Covid crisis by banning entry to all foreigners. This was despite there being any evidence that non-Thais presented a greater risk than Thais.
