The architecture of this place is amazing coupled it with a scenic view from the top overlooking the vast green city. You can either go up via a cable car or on foot which will take about 1.5 hours. When you go up the cable...More

Visited this historical site as part of a day tour of phetchaburi, the cable car getting up was nerve wracking and entry was more expensive than I expected it to be. The museum and the buildings to enter are not particularly interesting or historically Thai....More

Went as part of a day tour, it wasn't as interesting as I thought it might be, although some parts were closed due to renovation, so if you're going probably pay to check if it's all open. Also we missed the Chinese room which is...More

Interesting temple, accessed by cable car. This is in Petchaburi, which is not a tourist hotspot. Built on a high ridge (mountain to the Thais). Very beautiful views. Many thieving monkeys, on the lookout for food. Will snatch stuff out of your hand. Including phones,...More
