Place with great views which keeps Buddha spirit

Come in sunset time if you're around Baan Tai - Wat Khao Tam is a excellent place to visit! Easy road, not far from the main road.

Great view sunset and place. Very basic meditation center. The elephant trekking was a great fun and feeding them.

I did the 10-day Vippasana course here. Basic amenities but in working condition (also gives you the experience of how Thais live in the village! pretty authentic!), beautiful scenery at the viewpoint, peaceful atmosphere, and the teacher + volunteers did a great job of running the course. Food was excellent. If anyone is thinking of doing a course here, the... More

Not a great deal to look at once youre there but its a nice little walk. Would definitely recommend going up on an evening to watch the sunset. Follow the signs for the viewpoint and you find some stairs leading to a rock that overlooks Ban Tai. A great view and vert little effort required getting there!

The setting is nice and peaceful (minus the mosquitoes, but I know that's what you get in the jungle and in Thailand), and the view from the huge rock is beautiful. On a clear day you can see a lot of the nearby islands. Sadly, though, some of the property is pretty trashy and in complete disrepair. It's great if... More
