Finally, our second last stop! The weather was hotter than ever, our water bottles were empty and we were going to die of thirst soon! We quickly jumped off the tuk-tuk once it stopped to buy some cold drinks to cool down our bodies. I swear, if I could compare my skin color to a color palette, it’ll have to be 5 shades darker by now. (Not that I mind but I hate uneven skin tones!)
After drowning ourselves in cold drinks, we went to the site to marvel at the gigantic reclining buddha. Compared to the reclining buddha in Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon which is 7m long, this reclining Buddha is 5 times longer! It’s over 37 meters! Fortunately, the buddha was dressed in a robe at our time of arrival. The orange color robe gives it a huge pop of color. There’s not much information surrounding this Wat either except that the buddha is sleeping on top of a lotus [Thaizer].
There were ruins behind of this Wat but it did not seem to contain anything special so we just went on our merry way.
