I would not make the effort for just this place, but as part of a bigger day tour it was good. The people selling flowers are a bit pushy. It's a quick stop.

The place is absolutely must-see. Reclining Buddha makes THE impression. Its huge! And the surrounding place is definitely worth seeing. Though... Its terribly crowded (duh!) Be patient and make sure you are properly dressed :-)
