Bangkok - Wat Pho

Bangkok... the city conjures so many different images and emotions. It's a backpackers paradise, it's got something for everyone and it can be quite cheap. I had a great time in Bangkok. After China Thailand was a nice change of pace. The locals are much nicer and the streets seemed not at all chaotic, but that's probably only because I had just come from China.

First up... Wat Pho. It's a Buddhist Temple with the world's largest Reclining Buddha.
Wat Pho is the birthplace of the Thai Massage. You can get lessons on how to give them here. I Don't remember the cost but it wasn't cheap.
