Wat Khao Suwan Pradit

Don Sak, Surat Thani-Thailand

Wat Khao Suvan Pradit (Wat Khao Suwan Pradit) It was founded by one of the respectable Buddhist clerics from Southern Thailand. The temple stands on top of a 45-meter hill. Driving up in the car wasn't as bad as some temples I have driven too and even the car park(which is large) his a great viewpoint in itself.

You can see the pagoda with relics. Although during my visit the temple was closed.

The temple stands on a Cape crane, so that there are incredible views of the area and the Don Sak River, flowing into Samese Bay. And at nautical breadth, of course. The two stilted viewpoints one each side allow you to almost feel as though you are over the sea.

Again the views are spectacular and and well worth the visit, I could've spent all day there....
