The reclining golden Buddha of Wat Po

The reclining golden Buddha of Wat Po

Recline like the enormous golden Buddha at Wat Po temple and receive a massage that will have you limbered up for Nirvana in no time. Wat Pho is the largest and most famous temple in Bangkok, and with its elaborate gardens and roofline perhaps the most beautiful, but it is also the world centre for Thai massage. People travel from across the globe to learn massage here, but you can also just lay down and enjoy one of the finest tonics for the wearying bustle of an otherwise hectic Bangkok – muscle manipulation and bone-setting by experts.

Intuition or clairvoyance? Confound your inner sceptic and get your palm read by an expert at Wat Po temple. At times, the palm readers may seem to have deeper insight into your life than you, and you’ll be astounded by their knowledge of your personality, relationships and life trivialities. Have possible paths for your future described in a fascinating display here at Wat Pho - worthwhile for the non-believer as well as the seasoned mystic, and a great, intangible souvenir of Bangkok.
