  • Really nice experience, very beautiful and well-kept. I would highly recommend getting a little bowl of fish food next to the temples for 10 baht and feeding the catfish in the lake - its definitely an interesting experience, and super cheap considering the entertainment you get.
  • What a beautiful place to visit! Let your imagination go wild and enjoy the site you see. Brilliant photo oportunitis to work on your photography skills. Easy to find just look in your GOOGLE maps. It will get you there no worries. Spend some time feed the fish and enjoy this place.
