Experience the monks’ early morning chanting ritual
Visit Wat Po and the famous Reclining Buddha, covered in gold leaf and – with an early start – experience the monks’ early morning chanting ritual.
Continue by tuk tuk to Baan Bat, where locals have been crafting monks alms bowls since the 1700s, and then to Wat Saket, the ‘Golden Mount’. Climb its nearly 400 low steps to the top and see the large golden Chedi, which houses a holy relic of the Buddha. Enjoy panoramic views of the city from this high vantage point.
