About Wat Pho in Bangkok
Wat Pho is a Buddhist temple in Bangkok Rattanakosin Island in the Phra Nakhon district. Located along the banks of Chao Phraya River near the Tha Tien Pier, the Wat Pho temple is a regular tourist hub. Also known as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha and Wat Phra Chetuphon by locals, the temple is famed for its namesake Reclining Buddha. The fifteen meters high and forty-six-meters long Reclining Buddha adorned in golden leaves is incredibly beautiful.
Wat Pho is also famed for its exquisite Thai massages that are famous all over the world. A trip to the temple makes for an ideal day of relaxation. In fact, the Wat Pho massage is recognized as one of the leading schools of therapeutic massage in Thailand. The temple hosts a hundred and eight bronze wishing bowls into which tourists drop pennies to see their wishes come true. This money goes towards assisting the temple and all its monks.
The Wat Pho Bangkok houses three hundred and ninety-four gilded statues of Buddha meditating in the lotus pose. These statues have been collected from all over Thailand and are kept in the temple for preservation. A walk through the intricately decorated murals of Wat Pho leads up to the courtyard that is superbly decorated with Chinese statues and ninety-one stupas adorned with ceramics and colored tiles.
Wat Pho, Bangkok is an immensely appreciated landmark in itself. But it is also quite close to other places of great beauty and significance such as Wat Arun and the Grand Palace. In fact, the Grand Palace is a ten-minute walk away from the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. Getting a tour guide for 200 – 400 baht is perfectly worthwhile in a place with so many things to do and places to visit.

Aditya's 5 days trip to BangkokAwesome trip well planned by u guys wonderful hotel and resort .thank for making my honeymoon memorable.but return flight was very hectic it waste my whole day and 1 night. Otherwise nice trip thank u... Full day spend on cruise going phi phi island
Sagarvakharia's 5 days trip to BangkokHi This is the first time i did online booking and selecting Travel Triangle was not bad choice after all. My Travel guide Mr. Saket did amazing job in providing respective quotations of the destinations. His follow ups are very good too. If anyone considering for the online booking, give TT a chance and experience the magic. Here are still adding some Pro's & Con's of My trip. Pros - 1. Gave all the related information in quotation as required for the destination. 2. Made all the suitable arrangements perfectly. 3. Agents were very Friendly and didn't loose cool. 4. Hassle free sites for payment process. 5. On Trip assistance was amazing. 6. Very comfortable with overall experience. Cons - 1. Travel ticket could be made cheaper. 2. Hotel bookings were costlier compared to existing rate. 3. More locations in city tour could be added in the same package.
Mohit's 6 days trip to BangkokAll things were good.. but there was one mismanagement in tickets provided by team. Due to which I paid extra money 800 bhat which was not required in 4 islands trips. I talked with team for this but was not helpful. Rest all was good. Patong Beach, I loved and enjoyed the most.
Akki's 7 days trip to BangkokWe had a great trip. Starting from booking till the end. Agent Shalu from sabkiyatra helped in finalising the itinerary. Then Agent Neelu from sabkiyatra took over and guided us till the end with transfers hotels and tours. Also helped in keeping the track of them along with airport timings and transfers. She was a great help and was ready to help whenever needed. Hotels: Hotels given were great in term of cleanliness, service. However in terms of food and easy accessibility to main market they were not up to the mark. All the tours were great. Altough food in tours is Ok and difficult to suit to indian liking. So while going on tours, please keep in mind that the lunch won't be as good as expected. We were mostly on fruits only. The main reason for this was because we were vegetarians. Apart from this all tours were amazing. Most of the island tours here offer free snorkeling equipment to enjoy, so no need to have a snorkelling activity separately. We really wanted to do scuba diving, but it was not possible. Here I guess the knowledge about tours was insufficient with agent, as they said scuba diving can be done from any where but from Phuket or Krabi it takes atleast half day, which you should try to keep free preferably first half if you want to do scuba diving. Scuba diving experience is great on PhiPhi islands. The water here is very clear, we enjoyed the snorkelling a lot. However for scuba diving a one day stay on PhiPhi is needed. The ferry takes 2 hrs to reach island. And we get only 2 hrs on island which are not enough for scuba. Start time 9:30 - reaching at 11:30. Lunch is at 12:30 and return is at 2:30. If you skip lunch, you can get to do scuba diving. Most probably avoid big boat here and go by speed boat if scuba diving is to be done. And use the big boat experience on some other tour. The package was customized according to my needs. And various shows were also included itself in package along with transfers. Like Dolphin show, simon cabaret, Trickeye museum, etc. The travel agent helped us in great way for hasle free process to view these shows. The shows are amazing. Our return flight timings were changed and it was also conveyed promptly to us by Neelu. This helped us a lot or else we would have missed our flight. Overall it was a great and memorable trip. Thank you Neelu, shalu and sabkiyatra. Thanks to coordinators in Thailand. They were polite and provided good service. Also thanks to Traveltriangle for making this trip memorable.
