  • Amazing historic place!!! Awesome Architecture and Buddha. For Families or Groups, no animals allowed!  more »
  • Situated in height and by the sea, this temple is particularly pleasant to visit and easy to access. You will then be able to visit the small and cool beach of Khao Tao.  more »
  • The start of the walk up steps from beach a little difficult as concrete steps have been damaged. Don't be put off as the views from the top are lovely, the huge gold Budda overlooks the town and fish...  more »
