Loved the city view from the top. It was an easy climb and accessible to children/teens. We went there through a tuk tuk tour and really enjoyed the climb. A grey place to visit and not crowded like the usual tourist attractions.

Only 50 baht to climb this place. It has hundreds of bells. Views from the top are amazing (if it's clear).

Liked the initial climb to the temple. Lots of kitsch statues and also had fresh spritzer blowing. The actual temple is fine and as many note, the top has nice views. The weirdest thing was the fake vulture garden on the way down - they...More

Don't be discouraged with the 344 steps hike to the top. I thought it was difficult, but I was surprised that it was not so. The steps are not steep and easy to climb on. I love the trees, little ponds and Buddhist sermon on...More

Worth visiting - there is no crowd of tourists in the Temple and the view is really great. But be aware of pickpockets.

There is a small fee of BHT20 each. Nothing really, and well worth a visit.
