We went on a day trip here because we wanted to see a temple during our trip to Chanthaburi. At the street level there are several Buddha statues and a big fish pond. The rail that takes you up to the temple is near the pond. There is a mad scramble to get a seat on the train when it arrives. One guy was nice and let us have a spot since we were clearly not locals and didn't know how to rush the train. At the top the only thing of interest we found was the temple itself. You take off your shoes and follow the rules that say to make sure you are dressed appropriately. Inside you can donate to the monk at the entrance. There were a couple of wax statues of monks that look eerily real, I didn't want to look in case they were real monks. There were lots of trinkets for sale, I assume to benefit the temple. There were shelves of artifacts of all kinds, including currencies from around the world and old pottery. This was not terribly interesting so we went upstairs to see the view. The view was nice and there were several exhibits up there, but we did not go inside the exhibits because there was no English signage and we were dressed very casually. It was an OK trip since we were already in the area, but not great.
