Harassment: 2/5 (we were pestered by touts a lot)
Grounds maintenance: 5/5
Refreshments: 2/5
Value for money: 5/5
Overall temple rating: 4/5

Opening times: 08:00 to 18:00

  1. Although temples don’t do it for everyone, this post probably will ! An excellent insight into Thai culture and what’s on offer at Wat Po for the tourist looking for a ‘must visit !’ Love the scoring too !! x x

  2. This was our last stop on a 23 day trip. Having seen many temples in Myanmar and Thailand we were not sure there was anything new to see. Wat Po was really impressive. I especially loved the mother of pearl symbols on the soles of the huge feet and all the paintings on the walls. We have a Picassa web album. Let me know if you want access to it.
