Seeing the largest prayer wheel in the country up close and personal was great. It is absolutely huge and takes at least 4/5 people to turn. The adjacent temple was also very interesting and with both attractions being so close to town they are worth...More

This is worth a visit, it is free despite what some people believe and it has one of the biggest prayer wheels that I have seen. The gardens are quite impressive and it is very picturesque at night with changing illuminations, nice. Also, locals dance...More

View is very nice, and the temple is also ok, you can enjoy - on the other hand, this big praying wheel is kind of kitsch. Inside the temple, you will meet a monk who asks for your money - there is not entrance fee...More

This place is easy to find when walking around Dukezong Old Town. There are a few stairs you have to climb to get to the top, but the views are nice and the temples really interesting to explore! No entrance fee.

Guishan Park was a wonderful short stop. The village is being rebuilt after devestating fires however for the shopper it is well worth the visit.
