“Amazing views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Go up to the temple using the stairs, the view is getting better and better and u get a bit tired...but when you arrive at the top, you will get an amazing view of the whole Mae Hong Son area! The temple itself is just ok, but the view and the sunset are really worth it! The coffee shop is good and cheap and perfect for the sunset!!!

“Best view of the city Mae hong Son”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

This Wat is place at few Km of the City , you , You can hike ( better being fit) by car , On the top the Temple himself is humble and simple but the surrounding and the 360 view of all the valley and the city is really amazing .
Great spot for figure out your next move .

A special mention to the Funky coffee Shop" Before sunset coffee" behind the way really beautiful view to sip your beverage , and purchase some souvenir .

“Great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2012

The wat itself is reasonably interesting, but what makes the hike up the hill worthwhile is the view of Mae Hong Son and the surrounding countryside. Off to one side, walking away from the town and airport, there's a delightful little coffee shop with a nice view of wooded valleys and hills.

“Within the city of Mae Hong Son, is the only attraction”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2009

The temple of Wat Phra That Doi Kong Mu is a very interesting place. Stay on top of a mountain, where you see the whole city of Mae Hong Son. The temple is different from other temples of Bangkok, because it has an architecture with a lot of influence of Burma. Nor is it a very colorful temple, as the temples of Bangkok. The place is very hot!
