“Laem Sor Pagoda and Buddhist area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2014

The pagoda is interesting but even more impressive is driving up the really steep, but short, road to see the Buddhist area at the top of the nearby hill. The area is well maintained by the monks. There are a number of gold Buddha statues that are really impressive including a large reclining Buddha.
The view of the bay and the mountains at the top is spectacular.
There is a box for donations at the steps at the entrance.
Just remember to use low gear when you drive up and down the road. It's not for the faint hearted.

“Lovely small temple”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

If you are a tourist who's more into silent places where not many of the other people go to, this Temple is simply perfect for you!

I took a tour around the Island together with my father and I wanted to go to the Laem Sor Pagoda, but the driver decided to show us this temple beforehand. A small one, near the beach.

There is not that much to see, but you are quite alone there and if you heard to the big Pagoda afterwards, tis is the perfect start!
