Took a longboat trip to the Temple only had 15 minutes, so will be back end year to explore. - Looked fantastic, lots of young girls dressed in traditional Thai costums who were happy for you to photograph. - Wished we had spent a few hours there.

This was so impressive - a must see cultural opportunity. It is massive and really interesting. You don't feel too hurried when you go in, everyone must leave their shoes in a bag and you need to cover shoulders.

Simply put, its massive, and thats one of the amazing things about it. The rest of the temple and building are also very interesting and worth seeing. At the back of the property there is a government operated traditional Thai massage school, were our whole family got massages, they were a bit more pricey than others on the street, but the staff is experienced and its money well spent! Its usually busy so its a good idea to get your name on the list first, and then do your sight-seeing while you wait.
