  • Definitely a must see when in Bangkok. Cheaper and more pleasant than the grand palace nearby. Even though you bed to be decent dressed the Thais take ready and you can borrow skirts to wear when in the temple area.

  • We visited Wat Pho in the evening. The place is beautiful. We were able to view its beauty both during daylight and night.
