This is how many steps it takes to get to the top, from recollection this used to be free but is now 50THB, there are plenty of places/buddhas to see & the view from the top provides impressive views of the city, make sure you...More

The Golden mountain is an interesting place with great view. Do not visit only the temple at the top but also other small ones at your base. Interesting are the various gongos and bells on the way up. There are more than 300 steps to...More

One of the best attraction in Bangkok to see and enjoy. You can have Bangkok city view from this place and will really enjoy, especially if the weather is nice. I think this is a place that every traveler should visit in Bangkok.

Long walk but worth it at the end. In addition great view on the top of the hill. It is not common temples, but very worth of visiting.

There are bigger and more elaborate tempels in BK but Wat Saket was a huge hit with the kids. The Bells, gongs and lovely views from the top made this one of our favorite things to see in BK

Came upon the is Mount by chance. The climb was not gruelling so on a warm, humid day, we did not have a problem. Did not take very long and once on top the view was good.

For $3, I don't know how it was so empty! After about 10 minutes worth of climbing stairs, you get an incredible view of Bangkok's Old Town. The way up also looks kind of like a jungle and has large gongs you can hit! Very...More
