Tips from the community

The Golden Mount, Wat Saket, is a Buddhist temple on the top of a man-made hill surrounded by 300 steps circling the temple to appear as a snake. Once the site of the city’s crematorium, and dumping ground for 60,000 or so plague victims, this temple is now a serene sight to visit. Views are abundant from the top, especially at dusk. If you are looking for a beautiful temple that is easily accessible in Bangkok, but a bit less on the tourist map than others, this is likely the destination for you.
