  • Very hard to climb up the hill but once you get there the view is so nice! Definitely recommend to check it out as it’s only walking distance from central festivals shopping centre. Approximately 10-15min walk.
  • Amazing experience! Temple is nice and high in hills so you can see it from the whole Samui west side. But look from there is amazing 360 degrees view on the whole island and you are standing right above the airport.
