Description

Welcome to the narrated offline walking tour of Wat Pho, the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, in Bangkok, Thailand!

Wat Pho is home to an enormous statue of the Buddha. What makes it special? Unlike other statues, this one shows the Buddha near the end of his life, laying down (reclining or “sleeping”). Not only is this position extremely rare, it’s also depicted on such a huge scale that it’s hard to capture the statue’s size in a photo.

As one of Thailand’s, most popular sights, Wat Pho is a must-visit while in Bangkok. Experience the wonder of the statue as you enter the temple. Learn about the temple’s role in Thai culture. Most importantly, understand its significance in Buddhism, and the ongoing cycle of life and rebirth.

Are you ready to turn your phone into a personal tour guide? This app offers a fully-guided experience of Bangkok’s Reclining Buddha and Temple of the Reclining Buddha - just like a local giving you a personalized, turn-by-turn, fully-guided tour.

Devil is in the details!

A lot of details here and all is very nicely organized. We were pleasantly surprised that this app family is so detailed and well organized. I did not want to read so much but my wife read every line of it. The app has a “sub story” section for each main story for those who want to read more. So, I could breeze by and my wife took her own time.

Also, pls book the Thai massage at the school before you start the tour. That way, you will not have to wait. It is certainly worth every penny.

Not disappointed!

I had such a great experience with the Grand Palace app from the same company, that I stopped at a little Internet cafe and downloaded this one right after.

This tour seems to be a bit shorter, but had the same good stories and nice flow that I liked from the previous one. I was glad I got it.

Definitely better than the terrible local guides!

The “Learn More” is GREAT

I did not expect to learn so much about Buddhism and its theology and symbology from this app! VERY impressed. The really detailed and interesting content is located in the “Learn More” sections under each stop, and I recommend listening to each and every one. Thank you!
