  • Must see. I would give it 6 stars if I could. I've been to many Buddhist temples from Cambodia, Java, Thailand and Vietnam but this is by far the most ornate. Start from the North to see the original statue from when the temple was built. Note the Indian features on the Buddha and the face changes from different distances. Then go around and see the Buddha face change with Burmese (squarish) and later Chinese (sharpish, small eyes) features. Our guide, Ya Ye Ye was phenomenal for the nominal fees we paid.
  • The place is amazing really,but from this year you can't go up to see the sunset,so try somewhere else,and there is just a lot of people trying to sell you paintings,they kill the mood a bit.
