Amazing temple with a great view! If you've got to nerve, the little tram taking you up to the top is a thrilling experience. As are the hundreds of steps to the top! Many foreigners come here without a thought to their attire.. Please remember...More

Beautiful golden giant Buddha on the hill with Thai original style. The Giant Buddha covered with the gold mosaics and on the top of the pagoda. Quite a steep climb up so I took the tram instead.

This temple is about 15 minutes away from Kanchanaburi, but it is well worth the visit. The temple is located on a small hill and there is tram that takes you up there. At the top, the view is spectacular as you can see the...More

This temple is a little way out of town, but worth the trip. Built upon a mountain, it is reached by a funicular or a long stairway. The gold Buddha is spectacular, the views are amazing. River, farmlands and mountains... At the bottom, to the...More
