Golden Mountain (Wat Saket Temple) (Bangkok-Thailand)
The Golden Mountain or Wat Saket is one of the five most popular Buddhist temples in Bangkok and tourists often visit it. The mountain on which this temple is located has an unusual history that began in the 19th century. Namely, King Rama III wanted to build tall chedi during his reign, as a sign of the entry into the city. But, because of the soft soil the chedi had sinked and collapsed.

From the top of the hill, there is a beautiful view to the whole city of Bangkok, and when You climb up to 320 stairs to the top of the temple, You can see Ratan Island. The Rabbit recommends that You visit the Golden Mountain and enjoy the view.
