Wat Pho

I still have a few things left from Bangkok to show you, so bear with me. And I've been told that if there is one temple to visit in Bangkok, it is Wat Pho, why? Because this temple complex has collected many types of Buddahs of different ages, and also they have the huge "Reclining Buddah" here. This huge reclining Buddah is 15 meters high and 43 meters long. But the whole complex has at least a 1000 Buddahs, and also they have a lot of Chinese figures. And there is a reason for that, because when they exported rice to china by boat they had to bring something along to keep the boat steady. And then a lot of Chines figures where the objects they brought back. I was even able to witness a monk ceremony in the main temple. But this place is a lot so I truly recommend paying for a guide when you arrive, and it is not very expensive at all, you will definitely learn a lot, and remember to ask a ton of questions!
