Bangkok is a fabulous place to visit. We will talk about Bangkok attractions and especially the Bangkok floating market. Also known as Wat Phra Kaew, it is famed for a fantastic dark green statue of the Buddha which is made out of jade. The Buddha is believed to date back to the 15th century. It was moved to various temples around the country for a few centuries, ending up in Bangkok in 1784. Housed in the most elegant and impressive building in the complex, only the Thai king is ever allowed to touch the sacred Buddha. Apart from its famous resident, the architecture of Wat Phra Kaew’s many buildings is beautiful to behold; gold shines forth wherever you look and delightful Buddhist motifs can be seen carved alongside statues of mythological creatures.
Located immediately south of the Grand Palace precinct, Wat Pho makes an excellent addition to your tour, provided your feet are up for more walking. Also known as or Wat Chetuphon), the temple was built by King Rama I and is the oldest and in Bangkok. It has long been considered a place of healing, and was famous centuries ago for its pharmacy and as Thailand’s first “university,” both established by King Rama III. You can get a Thai or foot massage at the traditional medical school on the premises, but the prices are significantly higher than what you will find at massage parlors elsewhere in the city. Today Wat Pho is best known for the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, where you’ll find a statue so big (45 m long and 15 m high), it cannot be viewed in its entirety only appreciated in sections. The soles of the feet, inlaid with a myriad of precious stones, are particularly interesting with the 108 signs of true faith. Also look for the long earlobes signifying noble birth, and the lotus-bud configuration of the hand to symbolize purity and beauty.
