A nice area to take a stroll at the end of a long sight seeing say. Cats, dogs, and chickens roam the streets with complete freedom. It was late afternoon and I found it quite fascinating watching some bats hanging high up silhouetting the high still bright sky while others flying swiftly along the trees in the darker areas.

Not your usual Wat- with no tourist frenzy, souvenir markets and the such. Very serene, old Wat where time seems to move slower. But the greatest attraction are the fruit bats. Hundreds of them, hanging from all the trees in and around the Wat. If something is flying above you, most likely it will be a bat, and not a... More

A spiritual and reflective experience. It's not just about the temple of the reclining Buddha as majestic as that is. For me it's about the chilled vibe. The calming music and seductive smell of incense sticks, the irresistible Thai food, the worshippers praying in silent contemplation. It's a potent, alluring brew. Take time to park your bum for ten minutes... More
