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.

    • Trip to Bangkok

      I will rate the trip as average. All the people we met during the trip were very nice and friendly. However, Problem started before even starting the trip when we were provided with final itinerary just a day before our travel that too late at night due to which we could not go through it. No local contact details were provided. The tour operator was not responding my calls a day before the trip. Information provided was not complete. We were travelling with 3 kids and our start of day was planned at 0500 in the morning which was not possible for us to catch. Hotel in phuket was good but hotel in bangkok was below average. Also, 2 different kind of rooms were booked for both families travelling together and we had to pay extra at the hotel to get similar category rooms. Also, extra bed for kid was not provided in bangkok hotel for which we again had to pay extra. Our visit to safari and marine world as per our schedule was supposed to be a full day trip but as per local agent, it was booked as an 8 hrs trip which was insufficient to see the park and we had to leave some of our shows.

    • Trip to Bangkok

      i had a family trip with the help of travel triangle from 6th Oct 2019 to 11th Oct 2019. I had chosen a package of airport pick up to airport drop.. Team helped me and provided a customized package of pattaya and bangkok. I am glad that while searching on google for a good travel agency i found this somewhere being mentioned by a traveller. Our trip was completely hassle free. The hotels provided in pattaya was very good. All pick up and drops were exactly at the time mentioned. No delay. Pattaya local guide was always available in whatsapp and was quite responsive. In bangkok the hotel was OK Ok type. Rooms and bathrooms are not that clean as expected. Good thing is Indian Whatsapp Team was always active and responsive whenever any query was posted. The only minor problem we had during the last day Safari Park tour where we were compelled to wait for 30 mins because of some miscommunication about tickets. Would have given full rating if this had not happened. Except that minor all everything was executed in a timely manner without any hurdles. Thank you Team because of which we had a very memorable trip. Gud luck n best wishes..

      It was the first time I booked the package with travel triangle and the agent "Kingdom of Holdiays". Overall the trip was great. 1. The hotels were the best in Phuket, Krabi and Bangkok, but in Pattaya, it was worst. I wish the agent had recommended a better hotel there. 2. The private cabs which were allotted were good. 3. The itinerary was chosen by me and was executed by the agent well. 4. In Pattaya alone, a cab was not given as per the voucher. We faced so much difficulty in commuting. I wish the agent had recommended properly on this. 5. The agent had told me that there was no need to give island fee in 4 island tour and phi-phi tour, but in both places, I paid it. This was an extra expense. Apart from pattaya and island fee, everything went well. Thank you for an amazing trip "Travel Triangle" and "Kingdom of Holidays". Hope i get refund of island fee i paid.
