Wat Pho ~ Temple of the Reclining Buddha

We finally got to meet our tour leader, Nu, at our orientation meeting this morning. Everything was well-organized with name badges, luggage tags & belts, and complete itineraries distributed.

Today’s highlight was a visit to Wat Pho, a temple that houses the Reclining Buddha.  This is one of the largest and oldest temples in Bangkok.  The Reclining Buddha is the largest single Buddha and measures 160 feet in length.

The last two pictures include “The Giant Swing” which is a religious structure dating back to 1784, and a picture of me speaking with an elephant.

We have already seen some amazing sights, and the trip has just begun!
