Please remember that females need to have covered shoulders and to the knee shorts or dresses (best to use free sarongs which are provided). It was quite... More

This temple was pretty interesting, but not a must see. It has a number of different temples that you can enter. There is no entrance fee which is great, but it wasn't anything special. The best part was the small food market in the parking lot next door. We had a quick lunch which was delicious! If you're in the... More

Bring sarong for ladies and wear slippers/sandals.It's easier to remove when going in. Be careful it can get slippery when wet because of the marble floors.One of the few places where you don't...

Had the pleasure of looking at this lovely Wat. There are a number of different temples to look at. As with most of the temples females need to have covered shoulders and full length skirts. Sarongs are provided free of charge. You can't wear sunglasses into the temple so if you are like me and have script sunglass make sure... More

Very beautiful temple. Be careful as it can get busy, we went during low season but still had quite a few people. Remember to dress appropriately and hide those shoulders and legs ! Be respectful of the place. It's not just a tourist attraction but also a temple.

Walked through the buildings which has some amazing features and statues. The kids loved the crackers going off but there were some quite loud ones as we walked past. The attraction was free which is always good.
