Visited the wat before going for the Gibbon Experience. The long flight of stairs was a nice warm up for the Gibbon Experience. The wat was fairly simple and nothing mesmerizing as those in the larger cities. But the view was great at the top....More

Beware of their dogs. It is hard to go all those stairs up but it worths it, at the sunset it was looking even better.

This temple in itself is quite kitschy, but it has a pair of pretty stairs leading up to it, and its high-lighing location makes that you have a nice view over the Mekong from around the temple. Worth a quick visit when you're in Huay...More

Nothing to special about the Wat as far as Wat's go. It is supposed to have a nice view of the sunset, which I passed on, and a monk talk program, which I also passed on.

If you are a sunset junkie this is a good choice. The sunset here is gorgeous against the palm trees above the river. The temple itself is very pretty and at 6 pm there is a ceremony that you can attend. I reccomend

The Wat has been repainted and the monks and novices are very keen to practise their english. There is a Buddhist school on the temple grounds and between 7.30pm and 8.30PM one can join the older monks for english conversation.

The temple and grounds are beautiful, as they all are. Immaculately kept. We walked up from the river and the view back across to Thailand was worth the x hundred stairs. It's a nice way to walk off lunch.

I walked to this temple from my hotel on the river. It was a quiet enjoyable walk. The grounds of the temple are large and situated high on a hill. Views are fantastic from the temple. The monks are very friendly.
