Stunning Buddhist complex with a number of temples and areas to admire. Unfortunately our guide only took us to the lower temples and we missed out on the ones on the hillside. However, it was still beautiful, fine Thai architecture. Despite the fact that it...More

A 90 minute drive from Khoa Lak and it’s worth it. Although the temple is not the best it’s location and views make up for it. It was built in the late 1980s so reasonably modern in terms of historical sites. If you are fit...More

This is one of the more beautiful temples of Southern Thailand. It is only accessible by driving there. Some parts are not maintained well and good fitness is needed if you are to see everything as there is some strenuous walking.
