4.8/5 BEST REVIEW

by Thai traveller Thailand / 05 Dec 2017

Very good service. Offers guided tour of the ceremonial hall, but explanation is constrained by limited English of the monk. Big clean room with modern toilet facility. Food was interesting and quite good, but not something we yearn to repeat because we are not a fan of pure vegetarian meal. Breakfast was very simple, but dinner was far more elaborate.
