Situated in height and by the sea, this temple is particularly pleasant to visit and easy to access. You will then be able to visit the small and cool beach of Khao Tao.

This place has been influenced by Thai temple architecture and Chinese temple architecture but they are not well blended together. Overall it therefore looks out of place to me. The seaside scene is certainly beautiful, but that's all I think it's worthwhile. My tip is...More
