A best sunset view in Sriracha, with a Chinese temple as a foreground. Nearby there are a cafe by the name "cafe'ra". Wonderful spot for enjoying a drink while watching the sunset. Beautiful.

As the title states, if you're in town, spend a bit of time here. The temples are worth a look and the sea turtle pond kept me entertained!! The island is really just the crossing point to Ko Si Chang (where you get the boat across) but it's pretty cool, and I loved the Chinese merrygoround thing!! Not worth travelling... More

A small island linked by a bridge with downtown Si Racha. We walked the bridge. When you get to the island, to your right there are excellent simple Thai restaurants, where you sit on the floor. Good food. Otherwise there are two temples, one Chinese pavilion, one Thai temple on the hill. Below huge sea turtles in a pond.

Koh Loy means floating island. It is an tiny island just 500 meters away from the mainland. You can either drive a car or walk along the bridge. There are four interesting places in this island. One, a Thai temple. It locates on the highland. You have to walk up on a steep staircase. Not recommend for those who have... More
