  • This is a good place to travel. It has a lot ancient building and beautiful view. You can take photos on the Golden temple, and ride the bike to visit the Historic site. Also, there sells some small odd stuff that you might like. By the way, I recommend that you can purchase the ticket online because it is cheaper than purchase on the site
  • Its a nice big day out. DEFINITELY get the golf cart. The place is huge and boring unless you can have fun cruising about. Be warned. Not cheap. 700 baht just for entrance for foreigners. Everything extra, bikes, cars, golf carts are + + + .
  • We where amazed by the beautiful temples and surprised that there weren’t many tourists in the place. We payed 700 bath for the entrance and we had trouble getting the taxis to take us there for a decent price but the experience was worth it. I recommend going in the morning so you can spend all day there. We bought food in a 7-eleven and took it there so that it would be cheaper and it was perfect. You can bike all around the place. The only negative thing was that the audio guide was out of battery pretty soon and that some temples didn’t have a explanation in the guide.
  • Really nice place. Much bigger than expected. Good decent bikes as well. They are a bit small for foreigners though. But easy to ride anyway. Great buildings, neatly cared after and you can see many thai places in a short time as well as from other Asian countries. The food and souvenirs are cheap as well. I really recommend this place. If it is a sunny day i would recommend bringing sunscreen though.
  • Possibly the best tourist attraction in and around Bangkok, all things considered. A tiny bit expensive but worth every penny. Glorious surroundings in a calm and peaceful environment. It would be possible to spend a whole day there and not see everything. Bike rental is included in the price and if required, you can rent an electric cart to go around in.
