This was one of our first stops in Bangkok and I really enjoyed it. Be aware there are about 300 stairs to climb but the view from the top is fantastic.
I will note that we had a private tour guide with us at this site and I doubt that I would have really liked or appreciated it without her. She explained all of the history and the meanings behind all of the statues etc. For example on the way in is all the animals that represent your birth year. I would have totally missed this if not for her. Same thing with the statues you see on the climb up and the Buddhas at the top that represent the day of the week you were born. We learned about which direction to walk and why and the meaning of the money/writing people were leaving. She also pointed out from the top everything we were looking down at. I don't know if there are guides you can hire there but if there are probably well worth it.
I thought the whole site was very beautiful and it was extremely cheap to enter. I think I noted bathrooms there as well. There were no restrictions on the photos and we took a lot.
We took the canal boat here which took us right there and made it even more of a fun trip.
