It is a bit more expensive than other attractions, but the sanctuary is stunning, all craved from wood and they are renovating and improving it all the time. I have just arrived during the free dance and traditional fight show, which was a nice surprise.

The tempel was beautyful...very stunning... But the woman who worked inside of it..like a "tourguide(?)" maybe, is really unfriendly... She talked to other workers in the foreign language about the tourists ...about what they wear and she laughed while still looking at you.. Sometimes they...More

The temple is all wood and they were renovating the temple when we visited. It is remarkable, I have never experienced anything like it. Well worth a visit.

You can catch a baht bus along Nukla road and then catch a motorcycle taxi or walk.
I purchased two tickets on line on 21 February 2017, the money has been taken out of my account but I have not received the tickets by email. Despite numerous emails I have sent on the contact details on the official website I have received no response. We are flying to Thailand in 3 days and I wanted this resolved. Thank you.
