  • (This review is written as an aid for foreign visitors and is not intended to be negative; Wat Samphran is worth seeing!) Definitely not aimed at non-Thai visitors. The temple itself is in quite a bit of disrepair, but given there is no charge I guess that can't be helped. You can walk up through the dragon to the top, a bit intense on a hot day, but if there is a breeze blowing you can cool down in the shade. Beautiful views up there too. There's also a massive statue of Buddha which you can access, but you have to practically walk through what feels like a school to get to it and with no English signage.
  • One of the most impressive and unique temples that you can visit, the ride from Bangkok can be a bit long but the place is amazing, very charming with lots of things to see, the locals that visit the temple are very friendly. The main temple is wrapped with a dragon that also acts as a ramp to climb to the top of the temple, there are also other features worth visiting like the giant turtle or golden buddha next to the main temple.
