Giant standing Buddha was not up with many other temples we visited, but for the 20 Baht admission it was a good value. Nice vendors nearby were very friendly.

You still need to pay 40 THB to visit this Temple even though the Buddha is still under reconstruction. The visit is REALLY poor. SKIP IT!

We went there beginning of June 2018, Buddha is under reconstruction so you can´t see much. Other than that just another big Buddha, nothing around.

Unfortunately the Standing Buddha was undergoing renovation, therefore all we could really see was a bunch of scaffolding. There was a various assortment of other Buddhas at the wat.

It could be a beautiful site to visit, but unfortunately is undergoing restoration (March 2018). You won't see anything and will only lose the 40 THB of the entrance. Please check if the works are completed before you consider visiting the site.
