Reviewed 4 April 2018

Wat Pho, where the impressive reclining Buddha stretches some 46 meters across the temple, is the largest Buddha in Bangkok. Wat Traimit, where the famed Golden Buddha lives. This solid-gold statue weighs some 5.5 tons and widely known throughout the country. Wat Benchamabophit, a very impressive marble temple built out of slabs imported from Italy.

This is a beautiful place but also a place of worship so the usual dress code and etiquette apply. It is a peaceful place, despite the number of visitors. A place to see and visit.

The Buddha here is made out of 5.500 kgs of solid gold and is very impressive to see. Not too much people here, but we were early.

Once again you need a good tour guide to fill in the history. We had from TourAdviser, Ms. Alice Hong. The Buddha figure is solid gold and weighting tons. It is magnificent. Could find any word to describe it more vividly. One has to see it to believe it.

Beautiful statute. Amazing size for solid gold. Definitely worth the visit. You are allowed to take pictures inside the temple and there are some vendors selling souvenirs. Not sure how parking would be if you're driving yourself. Fortunately, we were on a private tour and had a guide walking us through and a driver in a van who could swoop in to pick us up. Definitely the way to do it unless you are staying nearby and can walk there.
