This was a pretty cool place offering great views of the city below and mountains in the distance. The hike up is relatively easy, but it's also hot here, so either way you're gonna sweat! BEWARE of the monkeys. They will steal stuff out of...More

Caught the cable car up and I did think healthy and safety wasn't too evident in Thailand but these cable cars are safe, modern and run frequently. Didn't see any problems with them and I was looking to make sure it was safe! The views...More
