Excellent Wat experience in Phuket Town - obviously well used by the local people, you get a better sense of the importance of Buddhism in their lives, rathet than some of the more touristy Wats in Bangkok - well worth a visit.

This was suggested as the 'must visit' while in Patong, Phuket. It was culturally interesting, with various buildings that make up the whole temple grounds. We unfortunately did not go with a guide, so did not understand the whole importance of the temple to the people of Phuket, but there was a lot of pride and locals going there to... More

This is a very beautiful place. Witnessed a wedding whilst I was there. Listened to a disabled man sing to the bride and groom . Watched and videoed the crackers being lit. I could have spent many hours there especially with a camera. Beautiful !

Visited it again for the beautiful photo opportunities..Sadly couldn't go inside the big temple this time.. Also the many stalls that there were in the back alley were all taken away now..and new stalls in a new building have been added. I bought baggy cotton pants drawstring for 150baht..such a good deal..and kaftan for 100 baht..very friendly people. No restaurants... More

We found the temple buildings incredibly beautiful. It is a large site and welcoming. However, security presence was high and the firecrackers which were let off were quite intimidating. Also a lot of stray dogs. Worth a visit but for the visuals rather than the overall experience.

A visit to The Wat Chalong is an incredible experience, so put it on your to do list. Words just don't do it justice.
