    Visit Wat Pho

    Wat Pho
    Wat Pho , the official name being Wat Phra Chetuphon Vimolmangklararm Rajwaramahaviharn , is a first grade royal monastery, regarded as the most important one during the reign of King Rama I of the Chakri Dynasty. The importance of this is due to the King having managed the restoration of Wat Phodharam, an old monastery from the Ayudhya period, and had it re-established as a royal monastery located near the Grand Palace. Some ashes of King Rama I were also kept under the pedestal of the principal Buddha image known as Phra Buddha Deva Patimakorn in the main chapel.

    Wat Pho
    Visit Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha), founded in the 16th century, the oldest and biggest temple with the largest number of pagodas (95 in all) in the city. Wat Pho was the first open university of Thailand which offered courses in several branches of knowledge like literature, astrology, medicine and massage. It’s well known for its huge Reclining Buddha, 46 m. long and 15 m. high.

Just across from the main entrance of Wat Traimit is the Odeon circle and the archway to Chinatown Bangkok.The Golden Buddha is 3.98 m high and 3.13 m wide from knee to knee. It’s cast in solid gold weighing 5 tons! The statue has a very unusual history.

    Wat Traimit

    The Golden Buddha was dissembled to remove the plastic lacquer and reassembled. Since then, the Golden Buddha has been placed in Wat Traimit, Yaowarat, Chinatown Bangkok. Today hundreds of devotees visit the temple daily to pay homage and pray at the feet of the Golden Buddha.

      The longtail boat earns its name from the long rod in the back of the boat that holds up the motor and propeller. Longtail boats are useful for exploring the canals of Bangkok. They are also used like water taxis.
      They can transport between 6-8 people.

    • Wat Arun : The outstanding feature of Wat Arun is its central prang (Khmer-style tower). Begun in 1809, it may have been named "Temple of the Dawn" because the first light of morning reflects off the surface of the temple with a pearly iridescence. Steep steps lead up to two terraces. The height is reported by different sources as between 66.8 m and 86 m. The corners are surrounded by 4 smaller satellite prangs. The prangs are decorated by seashells and bits of porcelain which had previously been used as ballast by boats coming  Bangkok from China.
