Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Lokayasutharam) Reviews
トゥクトゥク3時間ツアーの１つでよりました。中に入るとまず花を持たせて、金泊をつけるように言われました。その後おばあちゃんが寄ってきて小さな金のブッタを200バーツで売ってきたので、「いらない、いらない」言うと、「私たちにも家族がいるんです。買わないあなたにはバチがあたる」といわれてしまった。 私は「流石タイやなーなんでも金にするなー」と感心しました。 20バーツはしつこく請求してくるので払いまし... more »It was better than a 3-hour tuk tour. When I got inside, I first gave them flowers and told them to put on a golden night. Then grandma came by and sold a little gold Busta for 200 baht, so I said, "No need, no need," we have a family. It has been said that you do not buy a bee. " I was impressed with the fact that I don't make any money Thailand. The lotus flowers were collected by themselves and handed to the tourist by themselves although the 20 baht was paid because it was persistently billed. "If you do such a thing in front of the Buddha, you will be a bee! It was a tourist destination I thought.
This is an Insta worthy stop-off which I always include in my Ayyuthaya day trip. We often have it all to ourselves, it is an impressive Buddha, grand, peaceful and totally worth checking out more »
Visited as part of a bus tour to Ayutthaya. Well maintained wooden Buddha in the open air. Very large and awesome. Ubiquitous gift, souvenir and snack shops adjacent to the site. Trick is to head directly to the Buddha upon leaving bus so you can photograph without throngs surrounding!
The ruins here aren't much compared to others in the area so unless you're Buddhist or very interested to see a fairly large stone reclining Buddha I'd give it a pass. Also be aware that though it looks close to Wat Phra Si Sanphet it's actually a long walk to the entrance, and you might cross some rather territorial dogs on the way.
