We took a trip out on a local tuk-tuk. This is a beautiful temple on top of the hill. What we did like is that there weren't too many people so it was quiet and we were able to wander around and enjoy our visit.

Very peaceful. I can see this would be an excellent place for the faithful to pray. From a tourist viewpoint, to me, it is OK without being remarkable. Without wishing to be unkind or offending people, Wat Khao Rang is not dissimilar to other temples....More
