I must say that I'm not big fan of historical or religious sites but this temple is worth of visit! It is not huge from size but very well restored and gorgeous. If just possible, go with an licensed guide who is familiar with history and story of Thai Buddhism and you'll truly understand something.

Take time to stroll inside and outside of structures. I truly enjoyed the museum with large collections of Buddha statues from about 500 years ago. The main pagoda where Buddha's relic has been enshrined is under renovation but it is still worth visiting.

This temple was a disappointment. It is sizable, but not very beautiful or interesting. If you have seen temples in Bangkok or elsewhere in Thailand, you will be disappointed. The quality of the architecture and interiors is very mediocre. It's really not worth the trip.

This famous pagoda was built nearly 2000 years ago. Various modification and renovation were carried out. So, the temple stored a lot of artifacts and historic records. Most Thai Bhuddists would make an effort to come to pay respect to this pagoda at least once in their life time.

A place really worth seeing! We enjoyed our time exploring the area and taking in all of the sights that the south of Thailand has to offer. Much more relaxed a place than Bangkok, good for a break or quick holiday.

This temple is the biggest and famous in this city. The area is so wide and peaceful. I would recommend to visit this place in the morning or late evening when the sunlight is not so strong.

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.
