Wat Essay

Known officially as Wat Phra Chetuphon Vimolmangklararm Rajwaramahaviharn, Bangkok's Wat Pho is revered as the birthplace of Thai Massage. (Since 1962 the grounds have incorporated a school of traditional medicine and massage.) It is also home to the 46m long statue of the reclining Buddha.

Again I effectively had the place to myself as the army was still behaving in ways unconducive to tourism. There are plenty of monks around though, unlike Wat Phra Keaw.
