After exploring the grounds at Wat Pho, my tour continued at the Grand Palace and Temple of the Emerald Buddha, just a few minutes away.
This past October, I had the privilege of making my first trip to Thailand – Bangkok, to be more specific. Having heard so much about both the city and the country as a whole, I wasn’t quite sure where to begin exploring. Top of my To-Do List of course, were Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha) and Bangkok’s Grand Palace (also home to the Emerald Buddha). I signed up for a guided tour, only because there’s so much history and culture, that it’s more sensible to have a local guide explain the architecture, heritage and little nuances that may not be otherwise noted in a book or audio guide.
