Wat Saket, Bangkok
Visit Wat Saket, a hilltop Buddhist temple complex that has undergone several regal renovations over the years. In the 19th century, King Rama III tried to build an enormous chedi atop an artificial hill, only to find the soil was too soft to support its weight. His son had better luck with a more modest design, but it was King Rama V who completed the main complex standing today. The gold chedi juts out to cut an impressive silhouette atop the hill. Reaching the site involves climbing up 300 steps, so you may want to avoid the hottest time of day if possible. The views from the top--and the photos you'll take home with you--make the expenditure of energy more than worth it.

There are too few people in the Sen save Canal to sit and spare. After arrival, cross the white Bridge next to pier and you will find the gate on the left. When you enter the gate and raise your gaze up, you can see dawn. The artificial hill is a towering wat. There is a ticket counter at the entrance to the right of the hill. Rates for foreigners and Thailand are different. It becomes up to about 340 stages from here, but it is not a serious because one stage is low without a steep slope, and an artificial waterfall and a monkey who is watching monkeys say monkey and go up while watching. At the square with the bells ringing all the bells and the last big 褞袍... The heavy bass is the body...
