I went here by scooter, rented out for the week to see the surrounding area. It was nice to get to the top and look around, taking pictures of the view from there.

This was the first temple we visited whilst we were travelling. It was a great experience to be blessed by the monk that was on site at the time. The location is lovely with the most amazing views over Pattaya at the top. A great eye opener for someone who has not visited a temple before!
