Recommendation by Kade

Wat Saket is best known for the Golden Mount, an 80-meter high man-made hill crowned with a golden stupa. Before climbing 300 steps to get to the structure, notice the unusual cemetery at the base. Wat Saket used to be the capital crematorium; it became a dumping ground for around 600,000 plague victims! When you ascend to the top, visit the Buddha relic housed within the chedi and marvel at the panoramic vista of old Bangkok!
