We entered via the tram to the summit but the entrance to the tram was not obvious. This attraction at the time we visited was popular with tour groups and was free (apart from the tram) following the death of the King. The palace was fully furnished with a number of temples located across the hill top. We walked down... More

The park is fine but get the cable Car it's too blooming hot and humid to walk, in addition to free admission the cable car is only 50baht instead of 200 The palaces throne rooms and temples are fine but probably depends on how many Buddhas you have seen already, great views from the top and worth visiting if it's...

There is free admission to the park until the end of January 2017 to commemorate the benevolence of the recently departed King. The park currently closes at 16.00, we therefore had a very short visit, as our guide book had indicted that it closed at 18.00 (we did not have time to take the cable car to the top for... More

Lovely place on hill. Kids loved it (9 and 6). Very hot though as on high hill. Very interesting place. Monkeys no problem did not come near us at all. Worth a visit if in area. Amazing views. Cover knees and shoulders

Definetely a must-see, beautiful temples, views and winding paths. I recommend going there! On the downside: The decision to put loudspeakers playing elevator jazz everywhere deducts significantly from the serenity of the place (if anything, traditional Thai music or Buddhist chanting would be much more appropiate). Climbing the stairs to the various sights can be quite exhausting in the heat... More

This palace is the main attraction on the town. It's well taken care and well organised. The place is clean and there are lots of trees on the mountain. You can either walk up there or take the cable car. However, the fee for foreigners are much higher than locals.

Definitely worth going to see this series of buildings atop the hill. Fair bit of walking between each building and a lot of steps. Great views over surrounding area.
