The location is stunning. I visited on 2 occasions, once from afar watching the massive home made rockets being set off to induce a season of good rain fall. Which was a great spectacle.
The second time into the grounds itself and again the location of the forest and the density of the trees is surreal.
Unfortunately to say it how it is, from a foreign tourist point of view, it is so popular with Thai people, that you can hardly move. Everyone is in each other's personal space and to have the serenity of saying a prayer is difficult.
The parking is in muddy fields and thereafter the greeting of a plethora of hawkers selling overpriced T shirts, food, trinkets and lottery tickets is amazing.
The tonnage of flowers brought in to make offerings is incredible and so is the plastic bags left behind.
The cynical side of me wonders why the obvious commercial benefit to the area is not translated into better facilities for the people who visit.
I hoped that my visit would be inspirational for me it left me frustrated.
I write this from a tourist point of view as I know the site is revered by Thais.
