Very nice and quiet temple in the middle of the city. It is walking distance from Khao San Road. It is busy at some parts of the day but it is worth the climb as they are many things to see along the stairs and a very nice rewarding view of the city once you are at the top.

Tourists have to pay a fee of 20 THB to access the temple. Approx 300 steps leads to Wat Saket. On the way up you will see a small artifical waterfall and different sculptures. Various bells border the way. From top of Wat Saket you will have a nice view on Bangkok.

The views from the top were worth the hike up but after a long day walking around I wish I would have hit this earlier in the day.

I enjoy this place soooo muchhh! Even it took too many step, I think it's worth. Love this place. Not only the mountain, you should not forget to visit the temple of Wat Saket. The Ubosoth was so beautiful and very peaceful.

You walk up in 5 minutes and you get a nice view of the Bangkok skyline. It doesn't take a lot of time and it's only 20 baht for tourist.

This temple is not as popular as Wat Pho but definitely a must visit when you are in Bangkok. This temple is gold and located on top of a mountain. Therefore it is also called the mountain of gold. The temple itself is beautiful but the view over the city is even more spectacular! You will see the old city... More

Although there are many steps there is also several places to rest. But when .you get to the top the view is incredible. One of the best views of Bangkok and a very beautiful temple.

a must do in thailand. would recommend getting a guided tour and pay the extra - you cut out all the rubbish that doesnt need seeing, skip the queues and get to see more in a day than you would in 4 days if you did it all yourself.
