“Good exercise to go to the top!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

The walk up to the top was not bad at all although it appeared to be at first. Nice scenery at the top, able to see all around the city.

“Amazingly beautiful temple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Worth the hike up the steps on a hot day! You will be rewarded by a beautiful view of Bangkok, cool breezes and a temple of significance to acquire merit by giving offerings to the Buddha and other icons there. It can get busy but don't let that put you off, you will be rewarded by the effort to make it to the top! But, please as others have written, please show some respect as this is a working temple, and wear some clothes that cover the shoulders, not like the troop of bikini and short shorts clad eastern european women that mortified the monks and the true worshipers ...

“Great views, nice temple.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

The temple is in a great spot and very active with worshippers and monks, this should be born in mind because I was mortified to see the troops of nearly naked tourists clambering up. Come on guys have a little respect eh.

“worth the visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

We found this place by accident, and thought it was a highlight of our trip. A very peaceful and tranquil place. There is a nice takeaway shop to grab a nice cool ice cream. A fantastic view once up the top.

“Great Views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Worth a climb if you are passing. Good views across the other city sights. Probably not worth allocating more than about 1 hour but loads of other things to see in the area.
