The Awesome Reclining Buddha at Wat Pho, Bangkok, Thailand
Bangkok is known as a place to do very affordable shopping and enjoy great food, especially among my Singaporean friends. However, it would really be a waste if you visit and neglect to experience the beauty and grandeur of their palaces.
This was taken at Wat Pho, and it’s a really really BIG Buddha spanning easily two stories high and three stories long. The crowd here is really maddening though, and I had to patiently wait for a rare moment where everyone was not posing for a photo with the Buddha in the background! I think I spent about 30-40 minutes here just waiting for the right moment.
