Where to stay near Wat Pho

Exploring Wat Pho

Wat Pho houses the largest reclining Buddha, the largest collection of Buddha images in Thailand and the country's earliest centre for public education. The impressive Reclining Buddha is 46m long and 15m high and illustrates the passing of the Buddha into nirvana. In addition, visitors will be in awe while browsing through the galleries with hundreds of Buddha images.

Accommodation near Wat Pho

Bangkok’s places of interest and leisure are so widespread that many of the areas in the city represent a good location to stay. Recommended accommodation include the sala rattanakosin, Aurum The River Place and Chakrabongse Villas.

Sightseeing near Wat Pho

Bangkok has many beautiful temples that are all distinct and worth visiting. In the Bangkok Yai district and on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River stands the most iconic image of Bangkok. Wat Arun was built 400 years ago by the King of Thonburi and was made part of the royal residence. This impressive temple looks over Bangkok at a height of 82 meters, so it’s well worth a climb and its distinctive spires can be seen from afar. At sunrise, the glow of the sun is reflected by the temple’s surface, giving it a heavenly shine.

Transportation near Wat Pho

Bangkok’s public transport network is its pride and joy, with its BTS Skytrain covering most of the downtown district, with stations close to the majority of attractions. The Bangkok MRT Metro is a subway system that has a wider reach outside the downtown area, and interchanges with the Skytrain at several points. The Airport Rail Link runs from downtown to Suvarnabhumi International Airport. For short journeys by road, there’s the option of tuk-tuks, taxis or motorcycle taxis, but the city’s horrendous traffic problems make the Skytrain or metro the best ways to get around.
