Tour map

Wat Pho is south side of The Grand Palace


This is a big compound, you need a few hours to get around


many people head straight for the temple Reclining Buddha which is what we did . lol
but there is so much more and we will go more when we have time



About


the correct title is 
Wat Phra Chetuphon Vimolmangklararm Rajwaramahaviharn  วัดพระเชตุพนวิมลมังคลาราม ราชวรมหาวิหาร

so named "Pho" because is has the big Buddha tree called "Pho" in thai





we have 360 spherical photos in and around the temple - see the link this page to virtual tour 






45 mtrs long - words can not describe the feeling and atmosphere in this temple 



we have 360 spherical photos in and around the temple - see the link this page to virtual tour 














Virtual tour


Image result for gif virtual tour
from this visit we drafted a VT Wat Pho

note: image quality is low as some photos are extracted from the 360 video

please use a smartphone to enjoy the VR (Virtual reality) effect














Dress code


The dress code below is for the Grand Palace, the code is not as strict but you would want to show respect with the same standard 
there are many locals selling the applicable clothes on the street
