  • The cable car to this island temple makes for a fun entrance. The temple architecture reminds me of Christian churches complete with stained glass. The area is quite nice making for some quality photo opportunities.
  • Nothing perfect but overall is so good experience. Temple is not really Thai style, area is nice, clean and peaceful. Toilet is clean and smell good. Riverside is so chill.
