How to go “Wat Pho” temple from BKK airport

by Mal48

Hello Nice Peoples,

Hope to go “Wat Pho” temple from BKK airport directly. I will start to go around 7.30 AM. Can I get a skytrain to go there? If so, from where? Or any other alternative solution..
How long will it take to travel?
and How long will it take to back to the Bangkok?

Thanks
Mal

The only realistic means would be taxi. At that time of day, during the week, you'll be looking between 1~2 hours.

Return will, most likely, take up to an hour.

Take the Airport Express Bus # AE2 to Khaosan Road and walk 5~10 minutes from there. Express Bus cost 150 Bhat one way takes one hour and its cheaper then Taxi if you are travelling alone.

If you tell the Bus Attendent/Ticket Staff at the airport, you can get off at National Theater which is more closer to Wat Po.

I back up the 2 above posts there. They are your best options, I dont believe there is a skytrain in that area if I remember rightly around Wat Pho. The SkyTrains is only around the city center.

The best advice in response to your question depends upon (1) which day of the week you plan to visit, (2) how many people will be traveling, and (3) how cost conscious you are.

As advised earlier, Skytrain is not an option. Your probable options are airport express bus to Khao San (then walk, taxi or tuk-tuk), taxi to the door of Wat Po, or river taxi to Tha Tien pier (after taking a taxi or bus to access the river taxi).

If you are visiting on a weekend, then a taxi from the airport to Wat Po should be quick (~45 min.) and, if you are not alone, cost just $2-3 more than the bus (and should cost even less than the bus if you are traveling in a group of 3 or more). Since taking a taxi should save time over taking the bus, you may decide that saving a bit of your time is more valuable than a few dollars.

BTW, Wat Po is in Bangkok. But if you mean how long to return from Wat Po to the airport, then again it depends upon what day and what time of day. As with other cities, give yourself more time if you'll be traveling during weekday rush-hour.

Travel Tips for Bangkok

Fish in The Klongs

by pmarshuk

We were told there is a law in Bangkok that bans fishing in the klongs up to 50 metres from any Wat, and because of this the fish congregate around the Wats. I believe that really it's due to the bread that tour guides sell to tourists to throw in the water at a Wat which attracts the fish.

Erawan Shrine

by vigi

This shrine of Hindu God is very revered by many people who came to pay homage and beg for blessings. Laced flowers and small wooden elephants as well as Thai dancing performances are offered to the statue by grateful devotees.

Location: near World Trade Center, 5 mins walk from BTS Chit Lom Station.

Stupas, chedis, and prangs (4 photos)

by nicolaitan

A chedi (synonyms are stupa and pagoda)are tall domed buildings containing the relics of Buddha or other revered teachers. Prangs are Khmer-syle buildings, tall and slender, with the appearance of an ear of corn on end. Many chedis in the Bangkok are really more like prangs. To confuse matters further, some say all of these structures should be called stupas. The construction of the Chedi relects the practise of Theravada Buddhism. The base is considered hell, the middle portion human life, and the spire untimate enlightenment.

'Wai' for good reason and situation

by zazatann

As you know we do 'Wai' by put both of your hands on your chest and bend your head a little bit to hands.
'Wai' is for
1) Greeting
2) Thank
3) Good Bye
4) Apologize
5) Praying to the Buddha
6) Begging

But!!! Do you know ? We don't 'Wai' to everyone. Thai people pay respect to someone who is older as senior and we respect them as boss in a service business. So, please don't 'Wai' to anyone who is younger than you. Younger people won't feel comfortable to get your 'Wai' first. But if they do to you, you'll have to accept them back by do it the same after that.

Don't have to 'Wai' everyone who you don't know. For example; if you buy something in the shop, you don't have to 'Wai' the owner because you're the customer unless they invite you to stay over or join food with them. 'Wai' must be feeling or meaning to that person.

But whether you do right or wrong, Thai people are still happy to see you do that because we like what you try to do as our custom.

August: monsoon

by SirRichard

August is still monsoon season in Thailand, Nevertheless, I never found really heavy rains, just some cloudy days and a few raindrops some evening.
But, just in case, U better bring a portable umbrella and keep it with you. Plastic anoraks are not advisable, as you might sweat a lot (high hummidity here).
