We enjoyed our trip which consisted of walking up the hill relatively early in the morning. It got hotter & more crowded as the day went on & there was a sign apologising for closing early that day (14.00) so we were glad we had not left it until later. Some of the monkeys can be a little scary but... More

Caught the cable car up and I did think healthy and safety wasn't too evident in Thailand but these cable cars are safe, modern and run frequently. Didn't see any problems with them and I was looking to make sure it was safe! The views at the top, of the temples there and the views over the city are fantastic.... More

You could spend a lot of time here just sitting back and taking in the views and looking at the interesting buildings and contents. We would have loved to bring home one of the lamp-posts and some of the interesting items in the rooms!! Unfortunately Mr Benz could not fit them into his Toyota Landcruiser.

We enjoyed our visit to the Phra Nakhon Khiri Historical Park in Phetchaburi. The park was larger than I thought and we enjoyed several aspects of the park including the hilly terrain which made the experience more like a hike than anything else. We also loved the monkeys at this park although we found them to be slightly aggressive at... More

Phra Nakorn Khiri Historical Park is a must visit place of Phetchaburi. There are 3 tops which is Palace top, Chedi top and Temple Top, don't miss ones. If you have much time, try walk up the hill, you will see more fascinating buildings. Don't carry plastic bags or bottles, the monkeys will snatch them from you. Put them in... More

Accessed by funicular railway, no monkeys around when we were there, but busy with tourists. Pleasant gardens and small museum, interesting architecture, and great views across the area. Lots of steps and little corners and temples. Well worth a visit.

Old palace and chedi set on top of a hill built by Rama 1V. Reached by cable car , beautiful temple and palace. Also monkeys running free. There are quite steep slopes and a lot of steps to negotiate once you're up there. It's about 45 minutes from Hua Hin. A tip -: if you're getting a private transfer between... More

The summer palace complex of Rama IV sits atop a number of hills and is accessed by funicular. The palace itself is very well presented with fine furnishings and porcelain on display. In addition, the views of the countryside from the palace terrace and the observatory are exceptional on a clear day. Also, the views of the temple complex on... More

Location 20 mins drive from Cha-am town. Private taxi is pretty expensive ard 1800 baht for 2 ways Environment Beware lots of walking hiking and climbing stairs but it's all worth it. Awesome scenery from top of the temple. Every corner of this place is pictorial with beautiful scenery, landscaping and historical buildings Food No food sold in this place... More
