This is a free attraction about a 30 min drive from town. The really impressive monk statue is overlooking a parklike setting. Not much else to see or buy unless you are a Thai tourist. But no monkeys ...as suggested by other reviewer.

Not a lot to do. Walk up steps Buddha only to find out you have to go down again to buy flowers/joss sticks and then back up to pray. Signage mostly Thai. Even my Thai wife was disappointed. Some way from civilisation few culinary options.

You will need to hire transport as it is a fair way out of town but well worth the visit. built in reverence to a Thai Monk it is impressive on a huge scale.The Thai people hold the monk as a very special person who brings good fortune and keeps them safe from disasters,so on weekends it get very busy.We...

Be on aware - The monkeys steal everything they can get a hold of! The area is very dirty but the people are nice. There is a large temple on the top of the mountain and a beach at the bottom.

As a nice temple it is good to visit but you have to understand it seems to be a business more than a temple bare in mind there aren't to many food amenities at this location it is more of a local Thai religious experience

worth the drive to see this local icon, a lot easieer to understand if you are with a thai person as there is no english signs explaining what you are seeing.

Included as part of organised Kuoni tour. Amazing statue. When we got there it was brilliant sunshine, but just as we were preparing to move on, the heavens opened and it was torrential. Very changeable weather during monsoon season.
