Amazing complex & not as busy as the Grand palace! Lovely architecture & the Buddha's around the walls are stunning to see.

I recommend a tour guide through any of the temples, so you know what and why you are viewing these religious wonders. The Reclining Budda is a wonder and has an interesting history. It is plated gold, and because of its size, it is something you will not see often. The detail on this Budda's feet is intricate with the wall and its designs. Something you should not miss. Be sure to wear shoes/sneakers. Cover you shoulders and shorts to the knees and you should be good to enter. 50 bahts ($1.50) to enter by yourself.

Got to be seen. Incredible. Huge. The grounds are a good sight too. After went down to river for a beer and some great views.

Wow, nothing can prepare you for the sheer magnitude and size of this Buddha. It’s very busy but definitely worth it. 100Baht to get in, get a free water.

Wat Pho is definitely better than Wat Arun. Reclining Buddha is majestic but due to structure of the building it is in, you can't get a great view. The entire temple complex is beautiful and majestic.
