  • Repairs nearly completed. The observation deck in perfect order. It is a pity that soskovyj disappeared Gong and lots of bells from the observation deck. Come at sunset. That's when the really beautiful. Geolocation is correct, so get on the transport problems will not. For independent climbing hardly fits. All a good holiday.

  • Amazing experience! Temple is nice and high in hills so you can see it from the whole Samui west side. But look from there is amazing 360 degrees view on the whole island and you are standing right above the airport.
  • Very impressed with this place, not crowded, picturesque. From the site of the temple overlooking Lake Chaweng and least Strip. You can hang for a long time, watching the landing and takeoff of aircraft.

  • Peaceful place, with beautiful panorama! The airport, at a glance, you can see the Phangan Island, close to the Lake and sea beauty!
