What we say: 1.5 stars

Located on U-Thong Road on the far west side of the island and another five-minute bike ride from Wat Lokkayasutharam, this memorial chedi was built by King Maha Chakkraphat to honour his queen.

The story of Sri Suriyothai, who lost her life in an effort to save his during a battle on elephant back in 1548 has been embellished in the epic Thai blockbuster, Suriyothai, which is still supposedly the most expensive Thai-language movie ever made.

The chedi itself is rather average in appearance, but the small riverside park surrounding it is filled with gardens and makes a pleasant stop if you're cycling through the quiet western reaches of the island anyway.
