This is just spectacular. I've visited many temples around Asia, but this one is one of the best, due to the amazing views and collection of artifacts. We hiked up to it through a village tribe, which as a great and humbling experience. A must...More

Don't trust the reviews that say it is too long to walk up, it isn't, we are 55 & 62 and we fairly fit and managed it just fine. There is plenty to see on the way up to the Wat, which is quite beautiful....More

A very modern temple, but manyinteresting statues and objects and full of light. A wonderful place to build a temple, totally dominating the surrounding countryside. Unless you are very fit and resistant to heat, you'll need a car to get up here.

Huge Temple, best to explore with the car or scooter, stepish roads, part oneway system. Interesting to enter the big chedi and walk to the top.

Wat Thaton is a peculiar temple, as it is composed of several structures on multiple levels. The best ones are level 8 (best temple) and 9 (best views on the valley, the river and the mountains at the border with Myanmar). I visited them all,...More

Wat Thaton (In Thai Wat means temple) is located at the Top of the Hill. As the road to reach the temple is very steep and has several hairpin bend, hence none of the bus tours comes here. We were in a van and hence...More

We hiked, with a guide, through the mountain to get to the Temple. The hike is not for the timid..steep inclines, rough road and breathlessness at the end...completely worth it though. Took the ground transport back to the resort. The temple is more of a...More
