Bangkok Travelogue :Reclining Buddha

Finally my second post of Bangkok trip after many weeks later.You can read the part 1 here.

Basically the hotel is still new and it is in a good condition. We had a good rest over the night and woke up for our breakfast ready the following day.

Below are the photos of how the breakfast buffet that was displayed. As it is a boutique hotel, don't expect luxurious breakfast on the table.
But to me, i think it is just nice to fill our stomach.

Random snap of the breakfast cum cafe area of the hotel.

After our breakfast, we headed to Wat Pho. Wat Pho - (the Temple of the Reclining Buddha), or Wat Phra Chetuphon, is located behind the splendid Temple of the Emerald Buddha. It's the largest temple in Bangkok and famed for its huge and majestic reclining Buddha measured 46 metres long and covered in gold leaf. The Buddha's feet are 3 metres long and exquisitely decorated in mother-of-pearl illustrations of auspicious 'laksanas' (characteristics) of the Buddha.

We took Chao Phraya Express Boat to get to Tha Tien pier which took us approximately 20 minutes to arrive.
The views that we get to snap during the journey to Tha Tien pier.

Upon arrival the pier, we can see many stalls selling local foods and snacks along the street towards the temple. Basically that's the life of local people opening stall everyday and get waiting for customers or tourists to patronize to earn for living.

Finally we reached and we need to pay entrance fee of 50 bht to get in to see the Reclining Buddha.Took some of the statue from the entrance of the temple.

There are many buddha statue that are beautified with gold prints to make the whole statue to glow. You can see the pictures below and you will get the whole idea that i am referring to.

The toes of the buddha

We took a bowl of coins and when through the whole stretch of the 'bowls' not knowing the real terms of the thing and drop a coin on each of it and make a wish.
