Fodor's Expert Review Khao Yai Temple
Hordes of weekend visitors from Bangkok descend on this temple on the north side of town. Khao Yai is a hodgepodge of shrines and stupas lining a 400-step walkway up a steep hillside. It's an arduous climb to the main temple building, but the view of the northern half of the island, the mainland, and rows of barges and ships is worth the effort. Koh Si Chang has no natural water sources. From this perch, you can see that nearly every roof on the island has a big jar for collecting water.
