Next to Wat Botumvaty or Botum Vatey park this is a small very attractive collection of buildings and as we could see it from our hotel strolled through the park and what a surprise.

We had to ask a few times before we could find this place (mainly language issues), when we did, we found a special combination; lots of activity in very peaceful surroundings. Left a great impression on me.

In Asia I make a point of visiting the temple complexes of which some are exceptionally beautiful. Unfortunately this one didn't meet my expectations and somehow the western name 'temple of the lotus blossom' conjured up an image that the visit failed to support. I guess you don't have a valid opinion until you've visited and now in hindsight had... More

The area is huge and the buildings had a school in it. The downside of our exposure though, was that there were no... More
