“Night view”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This place is a good view point. The night bay view is magnificent with its green fishing lights. Very peaceful place, no people at all, free pass. It was nice to feel peace and silence after touristic places. But it takes some pains to climb to the top :)
At the foot of the hill there are many annoying monkeys, a thai women sells corn to feed them.

“The town”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

This review is not so much about the temples (which do look impressive from a distance) but includes the town, sea front and general area. We stopped here for a break en route driving south and I just have to say that I have rarely come across such an untidy, unkept, unloved area such as this. There are several minor building projects underway that clearly will never reach completion ... the area exudes an atmosphere of neglect and a couldn't care less attitude. Apart from a ruined Bay Area (that still retained some natural beauty) there was ... nothing!! I mean ... NOTHING!!

Interestingly on heading south on the dual carriageway we encountered a new Tesco Lotus shopping area. Roads, pavements, foliage, flowers and covered parking all nicely completed. Probably built start to finish within 12 months. As for the town ... a hundred sleepy years won't make any difference.

Btw, you can find good stuff to eat in Tesco at MK.

“Average temples with a Really Nice View”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

The complex of temples is nothing extra ordinary. They stairs up are filled with monkey, therefore you need to be careful on what you are holding in your hands and pockets. We've been travelling a month around Thailand and nowhere have we found such a density of monkeys :)

The best from the trip are the views. The combinations of small temples, two laguna's, view over the city are worth the climb. Apart from that there is less to see in the city than one could imagine. In comparison to other cities to the south, bit pricey.

“The view is worth the climb”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Its serene and beautiful up there. But be careful with the monkeys. Actually, they were the only other souls up there, when were there... And it somehow felt like planet of the apes. Well sort of...
