The place has a unique charm to it. If you are over the top highly expectant of things, its not a place for you. Its for those who take interest when they see nothing that others may find of interest. Dragon attracted me here. I have a special thing for dragons. The people are very nice n amicable. Be subtle...

This isn't a tourist attraction. It's not in the centre of Bangkok. It's an beautiful, operational once in a lifetime kind of place. You'll never see anything like it again. Take Phet Kasem Road out of Bangkok and keep going straight for about 40km. It's on google maps anyway. It's so peaceful and quiet and you get the feeling that... More

Worth a day trip to see a slightly run down chinese influenced temple with crazy animal buildings and the 17 story building with a dragon wrapped around it. Go on a saturday as we were told you can go to the top only on Saturdays. We went on Friday and were the only westerners there.
