Wat Phra Chetuphon (Wat Pho) “Temple of The Reclining Buddha” • it’s a must-see for any first-timer when visiting Bangkok. As one of the largest temple complexes in the city, it’s famed for its giant reclining Buddha that always being highlighted for most people when visiting Wat Pho. The figures here are impressive; 15 meters tall, 46 meters long also fully covered with gold. Easy access to enter this place. 👍🏻 ~ After a walk around the temple, there’s nothing quite like a relaxing foot or head and shoulder massage. Psstt... Wat Pho is also a great place to get a traditional Thai massage.. we should try their authentic and traditional thai massage to pamper ourselves and release our tiredness.👌🏻😊 • I can’t wait to see this fabulous temple with my very own eyes..♥️ and also try their traditional Thai massage! Woohoo.. see ya Wat Pho!😍 • The complete name of this temple is Wat Phra Chettuphon Wimon Mangkhlaram Ratchaworamahawihan - วัดพระเชตุพน วิมลมังคลารามราชวรมหาวิหาร #FunFact

“Second wonders of Thailand” Wat Pho is the soul of Bangkok. The first thing that comes up to your mind when you hear Buddha is Thailand. After reading about it, I’m curios of how long does Wat Pho personally. I need to find out! 🤔😄

You're in Bangkok, better see a few temples right? The Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho) is home to the aforementioned enormous reclining Buddha, which has to be seen to be believed! Nearby is the Grand Palace. While you can take a taxi, the most fun way to get to the temples is via the Chao Phraya Express Boat.

Your trip to Bangkok won’t feel complete without visiting Wat Pho’s famed Reclining Buddha. One of the oldest temples in the city, it houses a 46-meter-long statue of Buddha in a resting position covered in gold leaf. Another attraction that Wat Pho holds is its significance as the birthplace of Thai-style massage, which is still taught and practiced within the temple. While here, take a quick break with a traditional Thai massage to relax and de-stress!

"Little Patricia then checks upon, a temple religiously known. Her stares are drawn, Where to be, WAT could it be? She said -- There's an inner peace in WAT ARUN, DAWN't stop me, I'll trace Buddhism in the Temple of Dawn." In one of my favorite movies, “Eat, Pray, Love”, Elizabeth Gilbert journeyed into a quest of soul-searching. In order to find tranquility and harmony within herself, she found her way praying in India. Just like her, I want to find my own balance. I want to seek my own escape from the knots and tangles of not knowing myself enough. Perchance, a good emancipation is to be spiritually healed. Through a sojourn in Bangkok’s WAT ARUN, peace wouldn’t be that far miles away anymore from your heart. The temple is known to be the “Temple of Dawn”, and for sure, the temple will give you enlightenment before dawn strikes. It is one of the major temples in Bangkok that houses Buddhism, hence, one can actually meditate here (If there wouldn’t be much people). In this temple, tourists can enjoy climbing up its steep stairs and reach the main prang of the temple. After this strenuous activity under the hot sun, you can see the scenic view of Bangkok and picturesque of Chao Phraya River on the side. So, just like what others say, everything is more worth it with a little sacrifice. Neverthless, you wouldn’t regret having this TEMPLE RUN!
