We took a taxi to the Huay Mongkol Temple, which gave us the freedom to stay as long, or as short, as we wanted to. We actually stayed for about 90 mins which was plenty of time to look around and take as many photos as we wanted to. The large statue of the Monk and wooden carved elephants were... More

As a recently arrived tourist visiting friends in the area this is the first historical site I was taken to. I enjoyed the short drive there through the small farms and villages.

Was interesting site for adults to visit as did many many others on the day we visited. It is a very significant site for the Thai people as well and many attend for their spiritual needs. As there is little for children to do it would best to have them baby sat during any visit as there is not much... More
