"Phu Khao Thong" Golden Mount - Wat Saket Tip by YaaDong
Golden Mount - Wat Saket, Bangkok: 47 reviews and 95 photos
Wat Saket is a temple with a golden Chedi know as the Golden Mount. It is a bit of a climb up the man made hill to the Golden Mount so prepare to sweat a little if you think it is worth it.The hill offers a nice view of Rattanakosin Island and the roof tops of the surrounding area.At night the mount is lit up and looks especially beautiful.
*Every November during Loy Kratong there is a large festival in the grounds of the temple,including a candle procession up the Golden Mount.This is very popular with the locals with lots of food stalls,games and fireworks.I went once and it was too crowded for my liking .Not a traffic jam but a people jam.However its a good chance to see a real down to earth Thai temple fair.
