“Fabulous”
Reviewed 3 September 2014

Really enjoyed my time visiting this temple. Allow plenty of time as it is way bigger than expected. When I was there, I found a group of performers in one if the courtyards which was very nice

“Amazing....a must see!!”
Reviewed 3 September 2014

Its huge but the main bits are fairly accessible from the entrance....some steps for those who have mobility issues (Thailand hasn't really cracked onto accessibility for the disabled yet) but so beautiful, ornate and intricate....

“Amazing & Great”
Reviewed 3 September 2014

What an amazing place, this temple is a must see. You have to kinda get there early so you can get a couple of hours in. Wear long pants OK, and take your camera.
When you get anywhere around the entrance, dont talk to any of the taxi guys hanging around the front, they kept telling me closed today and it didn't sound right. I have been here 3 times over the years, and its the same story.
Another temple is the Golden Mount Temple. This temple is so old, and great for taking pics. A must see.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 3 September 2014

Really enjoyed seeing this. It's only a couple dollars to get into Wat Pho, but we went as a part of a guided tour, which was helpful to learn about all the different parts of it. If you're a budget traveler though, you can just read the information in your guide book and get in for only a few dollars.
