Explore Kanchanaburi’s harrowing past on 2-day, joint or private guided tour to Hellfire Pass and the Death Railway. Visit the region’s most important World War II sites: walk among the War Cemetery’s allied graves, then learn their stories at the Thailand-Burma Railway Center and the famous bridge across the River Kwai. Board a riverboat for Hellfire Pass, where POWs died in miserable conditions, then return to Thailand’s vivid, thriving present with an evening traditional dance presentation and a visit to a rural Mon tribal village.

There are many steps leading up to the the Temple, but it is not a difficult climb if you take it easy. I am 67 and managed it with no trouble. The climb affords you the opportunity to enjoy the view across the city, and there are features to enjoy on the way up, such as the large gongs which you can strike if you wish.

I headed to the Golden Mount early to avoid queues and high temperatures in Bangkok. The views are excellent from the top - the climb is quite manageable with a certain level of fitness. The temple is also very beautiful. I would recommend visiting whilst in Bangkok.

Great views across Bangkok from the top of the 330 steps that lead to the temple. Slightly annoying voice over the tannoy solis the peace of this temple.

I'd call this experience a hike up to the temple perched atop the hill. It was a good exercise as well as good vantage point for some views in Bangkok. Had fun also chiming the bells as I walked along the steps- it is said to bring and increase fortune so hit and chime away!
