From my hostel, Wat Pho is a 1.8 mile walk, and for some reason that sounded like a good idea this morning. Of course, I got lost and wandered around the inside of some random college for 20 minutes before popping out (coincidentally) at the perfect street.
The most popular area in the temple is the massive Reclining Buddha. At 50 feet tall and 137 feet long, it was breathtaking and impossible to capture in a photo.
The grounds were beautiful! You could spend hours walking around looking at the detail of the architecture.
Next, I crossed the street and boarded the 3 bhat (10 cents) ferry across the river to Wat Arun.
I climbed up the steepest steps of my life to the top of the temple but the view was well worth it.
