Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The Kamphaeng Phet historical park - town centre; is on R101 just 500m east of the River Ping bridge. Inside the old 16th century town walls are many impressive laterite ruins. This quiet and beautiful large park is well cared for with trees and grass areas. It is approximately 1km by 300m. Entrance is 100thb. It is a must see.

    Not a big area but the uniqueness exists. It shows the beautiful buddha images on four sides differently: standing, reclining, sitting, walking.

    Wat Phra Borommathat Chediyaram is located at 16.479555 N, 99.510370 E 16°28'46.4"N 99°30'37.3"E in the Nakhon Chum neighborhood. The gorgeous golden chedi was built in the mid 19th century from the ruins of an original 14th century shrine. It is quite beautiful at sunset. Take care to avoid the packs of dogs at the temple. We witnessed two vicious fights in ten minutes. We carried sticks home after this. Often we take out full size umbrellas to confuse angry dogs by opening and closing the canopy quickly while pointing it in their direction. Kind people in the neighborhood called dogs away from us a few times. The residential area has loudspeakers that play nice traditional music for several kilometers. It is a pleasant and friendly community.

    This temple was about 50 mts from my guesthouse so I could visit daily. It is in a beautiful setting and besides containing a large library, it safeguards a lot of local treasure

    The difference between this Wat and others is the collection of seated Buddhas. A nice shot and an easy stop in the town

    Historically, Kamphaeng Phet was a big trading centre and local people keep the tradition alive, not least through the Banana Market, on the Asia Highway just south of the city. Roadside markets are common in Thailand but this one is different: it runs for almost a kilometre on each side of the highway. The market is named after the little, bright yellow, sweet bananas grown in Kamphaeng Phet called egg bananas (kluai khai) but there is much more on offer than bananas and banana plants - wooden furniture, baskets and other woven products, brooms (big and small), pork crackling, fruit and vegetable chips, sauces, preserves... the list goes on. The market is popular with people traveling between Bangkok and points north, especially on weekends. Many people use it to buy gifts (such as the freshly cooked chips or pork crackling) for friends, family or colleagues back home. An interesting way to get out and stretch your legs on a long trip
