Amazing view

The view was amazing when the clouds/fog were not everywhere. Make sure to bring a rain jacket or a coat or you will freeze.

Many interesting things too see here, but the stupa is the foremost. It is high and and can be seen from several places in the city. But, don't miss the rows of Buddhas by the entrance, the "garden" of small stupas or the statues at the stairs to the stupa. It is possible to get up to the stupa and... More

This is the most important landmark of Nakhon sri thammaraj. The pagoda was built before 3th century. There is small museum beside the pagoda. If you have time, it's good to visit.

I visited this Wat - now a world heritage site - several years ago but the impression is still very much alive, along w/that of the city of Nakhon Si Thammarat, which I remember being a breezy & sunny place blessed with lots of friendly smiles. The view of white to greyish stupas which surround the main highest one would... More

Despite arriving for a visit as the heavens opened I was so pleased to have made the 150kms journey. I know little about Buddhism so was lucky to have a local person who can converse ( a bit) in English to show me around. It would be nice to have been able to join a tour or even picked up... More
