8. Wat Po

There's no combination of the corporeal and ethereal like a stroll through this otherworldly temple compound, where the relaxed smile on the famous Reclining Buddha serves as the cue to head for the school of traditional massage, tel: (66-2) 221 2974, right on the grounds. There's often a wait, and there's no privacy as aching tourist bodies lie side by side. But the prices are low and the standards divine.
