This is an amazing place to visit if you are interested in real ancient craftsmanship. And amazingly you are free to stroll around in the factory while the artisans are doing their job. Seeing is believing. But one should be aware that depending on the workload there might be more or less action to see. "Normal" tourists might however be disappointed as there are no guided tours and no organized information. And it's free, although donations are welcome.

I read some negative reviews from disappointed travelers. I guess if there is nothing going on, that would be disappointing. I went there on a day where people were working so I got a different perspective. I really enjoyed it and saw the different phases, from start to finish. People explained (only thai) the process. This is more of a working place than a tourist place. Then just walk through a gate yo see the live birds. The two places are well worth the visit. Both a 4 rating for me. I did not expect much and was pleasantly surprised.

This is not a spot on the list of things to do. They are really not set-up to offer an actual tour of the facility. With that said - I did find it interesting to walk around and see all the workers preparing the various sized Buddha images.

We were lucky, because we pushed the gate open just as the casting of a monumental Buddha image was about to get underway. Several weeks of work hung in the balance. It was an awe-inspiring, breathtaking process and it was explained to us very carefully at every stage by a warm and humorous woman who normally works in the office. It's like one big family, and on a bed in one corner of the factory a young woman who had recently given birth was resting on a bamboo bed with a smouldering fire beneath it. At the end we purchased a small image for our family altar; it will help us to remember a unique experience.

The Buddha Casting Factory is very interesting to see how much work goes into making the Buddha. The bird sanctuary attached is very run down and not well maintained.
