Wat Pho (the Temple of the Reclining Buddha) or Wat Phra Chetuphon is located behind the majestic Temple of the Emerald Buddha and is the largest temple in Bangkok, Thailand. Tours can be easily arranged with good English speaking guides, who will provide interesting factual information about this stunning temple and if you’ve never tried a traditional Far East Thai massage, Wat Pho is a good place to start. It’s quite different to most other forms of therapeutic massage and tends to be invigorating rather than relaxing incorporating yoga style postures to relieve stress and improve blood circulation.
