This place is a really good spot to relax, take your time, pray, walk.. But, there is still not lot of things to see. If you have no bike or bicycle, this place is hard to get. It's not really worth it to go that...More

The whole area is covered with ancient banyan tree aged over 300 years. Other than this, nothing much there, many fortune teller kiosks around the area. There are local souvenir shops outside, price is cheap.

Having read some reviews I would like to clear a few matters up. The Banyan tree is a bit special as it actually grows on itself i.e. its seeds drop into crevices of the original tree and then grows on that tree. Also named the...More

Imagine walking in the area like lost land where old trees creeping everywhere, it is spooky for me. It is even haunted in the day time when seeing several shrines with a load of offered garland and smell of incent. This place is easy to...More

We visited Sai Ngam and its famous banyan tree early in the morning when the sunrise was low. It is beautiful with a nice walkway and several interesting shrines inside. We spent about two hours but one is probably sufficient. There is no cost for...More

Not worth the effort just to come all the way here to see it , only good for a 10 mins walk. I take it as a side trip after visiting the Phimai History Park, do it if you have 60mins to spare.

Read and heard some great thinks about it, but unfortunately it was a disappointment. The roots of the tree was completely decorated with coloured pieces of material. It looked more like a Christmas tree. Around it was a lot of dirt, not maintained at all!...More

When you are in Phimai (for the great Khmer temple complex in the Historical Park), don't forget to visit the banyan tree-cum-temple-cum-picnic spot. It is a nice walk from the centre of town (about 20 minutes), no need to take food: plenty of restaurants near...More

Had hoped for more. It was interesting, but the trees were smaller than expected. Pathway was interesting but after walking from town, we felt the presentation was just ok. Had we brought a picnic lunch, might have stayed longer.

We walked here in the afternoon, couldn't get any transport to take us there, and had to stop several times to ask directions. When we arrived we found an area with concrete paths that was liberally scattered with tables and seats and a lot of...More
