Wat Sa Bor Keaw

Burmese-style wat

What we say: 3.5 stars

This attractive Burmese-style wat set beside a towering CAT tower is best known for its pagoda.

The unusual sprawling front veranda and the multi-tiered, staggered roof make this a refreshingly different site to visit. The golden-coloured, umbrella-shaded statue out front and the gleaming white construction to the left of the main compound make it all the more memorable a place to visit.

Less popular than the better known Wat Chom Sawan, Wat Sa Bor Kaew nevertheless attracts a steady stream of devotees and while we'd say it isn't worth traipsing across Thailand to see, if you're in the area this is a peaceful escape from the city.
