THE WATS OF BANGKOK
Temple of the Emerald Buddha
Whereas it is forbidden to take a picture of the emerald Buddha, you can still capture many other beautiful holy structures in the complex before visiting the Grand Palace itself. The Temple of the Emerald Buddha is the most sacred site in Thailand. I’ve never seen so much gold in my life!
The Grand Palace
Wat Pho is famous for its colossal, reclining Buddha. At an enormous length of 46 metres, it is massive! In fact, the temple complex houses the largest collection of Buddha images in Thailand. About cool fact about Wat Pho? It is where the Thai massage started!
It only cost us approximately 20 cents to cross the river to Wat Arun. If you don’t want to pay the entrance fee, then you can still see a fair amount of it. There are smaller temples, and some lovely gardens! Try to do what I couldn’t and see it at night – it lights up and looks heavenly!
The Golden Mount
Trust me, all of the steps are worth it! It is magical on the way up (as you pass waterfalls and lovely trees), and you won’t be disappointed at the top either. That is where you can get a view of Bangkok in all its glory!
Those were the highlights of my Bangkok trip! Next up, Cambodia!
