  • When people have to travel to Phu Rua. Indispensable is to waking up early to watch the sunrise on the peaks of the Park, Phu Rua. When access to the car park, there will be a car park up to the Summit, a distance of approximately 1 km, Phu ruea set only 10 baht to keep force intended return journey is better than the good economy car. The cool morning air. In the rainy season, there will be more than another season at the sea mist. There are approximately 180 degrees around him passages, and don't forget to pray to a Buddha statue with prayer garden walks. For people who haven't booked hotel Rua recommends staying at Phu terrace resort hotel with the most beautiful view of the Hill of Phu ruea wide open view, see Wat Phra Kring-Mountain West. Visit Temple crab wood big plates. When seen from the temple to view all Phu ruea market. From the main road to SOI 7-11 will be Lotus/side entrance. If this recommend booking in advance.

  • If you are not Thai you pay ten times more. We would not support this type of blatant overcharging.
  • Very nice flowerpark with Christmasstars
  • Nothing worth to see here only pine trees and fog, save your money and go somewhere else
  • Worth comming here once in a lifetime
  • 220 baht for a cloudy view. Don't bother. (Farangs are overcharged here.)
