Wat Thaton is more than worth a visit. Located high above the village / area and here you also have a beautiful view. Temple itself is also more than worth a visit. It is actually also a place where instruction on Buddhism is also given....More

Wat Thaton is a very impressive temple due to its prominent hilltop position. But even more exciting is the spectacular panoramic view down toward the valley. As there might be some mist early in the morning you should visit this place later than 10 AM...More

The temple was on the hill closed to Kok river. You have to drive carefully because of the slopy and narrow road. At the temple you can see a good view. There are many Buddha statues. It is good for making merit here.

The temple complex is on 9 levels ( over a few km, you’ll need your own wheels) each with something to see. Not all are impressive but some are spectacular making this temple one among those that can be visited without being too bored. On...More
