A very beautiful temple with impressive golden structures and monk statues inside the temples. We arrived around 3pm and it was moderately busy. I would say early morning might be a good time to go to try to get photos of things without people walking...More

Along with Wat Chedi Luang, this is another interesting place to visit with its temples and monastic school. Many young monks are everywhere and signs invite English speakers to help the monks practice their language skills in the "monk chat" areas.
