- Wat PhoOct 24, 2013
Wat Pho is the largest wat in Bangkok and far more manageable than The Grand Palace. The reclining Buddha is very impressive, though when I visited there was some renovation going on and the halls were extremely dark. Be prepared that it will be difficult to see the Buddha in its entirety, since a) it's so large, and b) the walkway around it is quite narrow and so there is nowhere to step back and see the big picture. Still, the craftsmanship is so unique and definitely worth a visit.

Just a short walk from the everybody-and-their-cousin free-for-all of the Grand Palace, Wat Pho receives (comparatively) far fewer visitors and, most importantly, it's actually possible here to have a moment of quiet to oneself. Eminent among Bangkok's countless 'wats', Wat Pho is rightly famous for its gargantuan reclining Buddha figure (really very incredibly large), and would be an easy first choice for a day of temple-hopping thruout the city.

Also known as the place of where the Temple of Reclining Buddha resides, this place is worth the visit. The Buddha statue is the largest in Thailand. It's about a 30 minute walk around the compounds, and it's only a block away from the grand palace.

This is my second favorite sight in Bangkok after the Grand Palace. Definitely a must see. One of the highlights is a massage at the resident massage school. Waits can be long so go directly to the school when you arrive and get a number so that you can spend your time seeing the temple rather than waiting at the school.
