    It is a must to taste the fruits that are sold in this bustling tourist destination. Almost 9 out of 10 tourists visit this historic floating market.

    From the evidence told about the origin of this temple that built in Dvaravati period and later rebuilt in Khmer influence period (Bayon period). After that in Ayutthaya period, there was a reconstruction over the old khmer prang for a new Ayutthaya prangs.
    The must see things are:
    -a group of Prangs, which built in Ayutthaya period over the Khmer Prang.It surrounded with 3 prangs on the same base. The main Prang have a long niche where inside decorated with mural painting about the past Buddha. It assumed to be painted on the same date as main Prang. Outside the Prang also decorated with finest Ayutthaya style stucco which hardly find in Ayutthaya.
    -Viharn, inside housed a big Buddha image.
    -the boundary wall surrounded the Prangs, over the wall decorated with carving stones which 's the same style as Bayon in Khmer Art.

    We rented a mini-van that could fit up to 11 of us. I think this may very well be the best option to explore the place as you've got the option to stay overnight cos there are just too many things to see! Rental of vans are cheap and the company which does most of this is Budget.
