The park is fine but get the cable Car it's too blooming hot and humid to walk, in addition to free admission the cable car is only 50baht instead of 200 The palaces throne rooms and temples are fine but probably depends on how many Buddhas you have seen already, great views from the top and worth visiting if it's...

This place is incredible with great view, many connecting historical buildings up on the mountain and king's house museum.

There is free admission to the park until the end of January 2017 to commemorate the benevolence of the recently departed King. The park currently closes at 16.00, we therefore had a very short visit, as our guide book had indicted that it closed at 18.00 (we did not have time to take the cable car to the top for... More

Lovely place on hill. Kids loved it (9 and 6). Very hot though as on high hill. Very interesting place. Monkeys no problem did not come near us at all. Worth a visit if in area. Amazing views. Cover knees and shoulders

Definetely a must-see, beautiful temples, views and winding paths. I recommend going there! On the downside: The decision to put loudspeakers playing elevator jazz everywhere deducts significantly from the serenity of the place (if anything, traditional Thai music or Buddhist chanting would be much more appropiate). Climbing the stairs to the various sights can be quite exhausting in the heat... More

This palace is the main attraction on the town. It's well taken care and well organised. The place is clean and there are lots of trees on the mountain. You can either walk up there or take the cable car. However, the fee for foreigners are much higher than locals.

Definitely worth going to see this series of buildings atop the hill. Fair bit of walking between each building and a lot of steps. Great views over surrounding area.

Caught the cable car to the top of the mountain and was surprised by how lovely the gardens were. There was a lot of walking but the view was lovely and the various buildings and temples made it worthwhile. Would recommend.

One of the best place seen in Thailand. It's a long walk but it was worth it. The panorama from the Stupa is really great. Consider at least 3hrs to see all the place

We had a guide from the hotel, so we avoided all payments and negotiations that other reviewers talk about. Its summer so its not busy, but once up the top via the cable car, the cool mountains breezes made it obvious why they built the summer palace here, it was lovely and cool standing in the windows with the breeze...
