Wats, the Thai term for Buddhist temples, offer equally intriguing insights into the cultural makeup of Bangkok. The meditative world of these religious enclaves provides a respite from the city's busy streets and bustling night markets. Wat Phra Kaeo (Temple of the Emerald Buddha) and Wat Po (Temple of the Reclining Buddha) are stunning examples of Buddhist sculpture, architecture, painting and decorative crafts. Besides paying homage and receiving blessings from a monk, you can consult astrologers and palm readers here and have your future told.
