The bustling metropolis inspires with over 400 glittering Buddhist temples.  The values of the Buddhist statues and palaces are immeasurable.

The boat-filled Chao Phraya River feeds its network of canals, flowing past the Rattanakosin royal district, home to opulent Grand Palace and its sacred Wat Phra Kaew Temple. Nearby is Wat Pho Temple with an enormous reclining Buddha and, on the opposite shore, Wat Arun Temple with its steep steps and Khmer-style spire.

A visit to Wat Pho is a must for any traveler to Bangkok, it is the home to the Reclining Buddha which stands at fifteen meters tall and forty-six meters long, the feet alone are measured at over five meters. The whole statue is covered in gold leaf and looks incredible when you get up close. Inside the temple, there are 108 bowls and on the way into the temple you can buy coins for the bowls.

Whilst you are at the temple you can also stop for a while to receive a traditional Thai Massage.
