Recommendation by Lemi

Hike up to Wat Saket and witness the Golden Mount, a burial site rumored to contain some of Buddha’s remains. The temple is built on an 80-meter high man-made hill, which was once the highest point in all of Bangkok. Walk up 300 steps to reach the peak where the vast and panoramic views of the city await you. The foot of the temple below is another historically significant spot—former plague victims were dumped and buried here during one of Bangkok’s darker period. Be warned—rumors abound that the area may be haunted!
