I've seen scores, hundreds of pagodas but this one defied my expectations. You first see it through a slit in a huge brick case and once across the narrow archway its size is huge, overwhelming and at the same time serene. Quite an experience! A...More

This is still a very active site for worship so be respectful. The dress code wasn’t being enforced, but it’s disrespectful to wear shorts, hats, or tank tops here. If you start your day here before 9am, you’ll beat the larger tour groups that start...More

This Wat has a beautifully positioned buddha within the Wat structure. The Wat is a bit outside of the central area complex but easy to reach by bicycle.

The ruins here are limited in terms of scope but do include a magnificent giant seated Buddha that just has to be seen.

Wat Si Chum is about 2 km away from the main historical park. It may be a good idea to come here around 5pm when the light is great. Then, head back to Wat Maha That in the main historical park to see the sunset...More

Tucked away from main complex, this small temple hosts big Buddha statue, which is surrounded by thick wall from all sites. Not really worth paying 100 baht if you are foreigner.

This is another Wat in a huge area of Wats, we went as it was near the road and an easy stop for 20 mins, but not that special.
