Wat Pho is one of the most iconic places in Bangkok, notably for its giant reclining Buddha statue, which is also the world’s largest reclining Buddha. There are some popular positions for depicting Buddha, such as: meditating, walking and reclining, which the later symbolizes Buddha’s reach for Nirvana.
This place is conveniently accessible from The Grand Palace complex (it is located at the south of The Grand Palace and across the street that separates the two places). Wat Pho also happens to be the birthplace of traditional Thai massage, hence you will also see Thai massage as one of the services offered there. Stroll around the courtyard and wander through different areas of Wat Pho complex to see beautiful Thai architecture and golden statues of meditating Buddha. All these experiences only costs you 50 bahts (and once again, it is open the whole day).
