  • What a beautiful day today to visit this holly place off Buddhisum! Just out off HUA HIN this is a must to visit and enjoy the soraundings! Try to visit on a weekday! So very busy on weekend's and BUDDHIST HOLIDAYS. It has become a pilgrimage place for Thai people. There is plenty of parking around so relax and enjoy this beautiful place !
