Giant Swing Reviews
Not much to see here. Tall, spindly arch which was the frame of a swing. Not much information about it. Doesn’t seem that important to anyone any more to maintain it with the swing in place. more »
This is a site near a temple that used to have a swing, now, that swing is gone and just the giant red frame of where the swing was is left. Not much to see there frankly, surely not worth seeking..... more »
Interesting structure worth seeing for sure. Easy to get to, kind of hard to miss. The associated temple is also worth taking in.
Great attraction in Bangkok, it’s a giant swing that was actually used as a swing many years ago, you can use the swing as they have removed it but the structure is still there and it’s beautiful
