22 things to doin Bangkok
You can not only stare at the 46-meter golden Buddha and lots of little buddhas at the temple, but also thoroughly cleanse your karma and attract luck.
Wat Pho, Bangkok
Wat Pho is one of Bangkok’s most ancient and biggest temples. It draws in many tourists that, apart from everything else, want to see the temple’s major highlight – the statue of the Reclining Buddha. This is a remarkable sight indeed. The Buddha’s figure is covered in leaf gold and strikes with its imposing dimensions – 46 meters in length vs 15 meters in height.

Included in the entry fee are a bottle of cool water and a shoe storage bag for rent, as you only may walk there barefooted. Also beware of the dress-code that is in force throughout the temple complex – no bare body parts or ragged jeans are allowed.
