Visit the largest pagoda in Thailand at Wat Phra Pathom Chedi, a temple first established in the 6th century that now houses historical relics and the remains of renowned Thai figures.

The attraction's stupa, a mound-like structure used for meditation, is the tallest in the world. If you get hungry, look for food stalls that line the street leading to the attraction.

  • Very important place for Thai people. It's 2500 years old and very satisfying. Need to visit if u are interested in Thai culture and Buddhism
  • Impressive Pagoda, special Museum and some religious sites. No entrance to the main pagoda, very hot during day times
