Many beautiful temples on this site which allow entry. If you are passing by, or have access to a vehicle they are worth a visit.

Wat Chalong is a very intersting Wat in between Phuket Town and Rawai and is in the heart of Chalong. We enjoyed strolling the grounds and seeing this complex. Climbing to the top of the Wat gives impressive views and exellent photographic opportunities. The complex is well maintained and is a very important place of worship to Buddha. I would... More

it is located at West Chaofa road, it is a place that you must visit when you are in Phuket. it's very beautiful with Thai architecture style, lots of parking and most of Thai people respect this place. There is a history in this temple and you can make a wish and pray for a peace of life.

We visited Wat Chalong late one afternoon. There were no crowds and it was quiet and peaceful. It's such a beautiful place with stunning, ornate architecture and beautifully manicured gardens. It's a beautiful place and a definite must. Be prepared for firecrackers. They certainly make you jump!

It was the first temple we visited in Thailand, maybe this could be the reason of the great impression... but the details, colours, architecture, cleanliness all unforgettable impression of this place. Really highly recommended place to see in Phuket!

We visited the temple today and I can say I had a nice time there. We did a trip with a tuk tuk for 700B round trip. The place is rather big with several buildings to visit. The main temple has 3 floors, very colorful outside and all walls inside painted with Buddha life events. There is also a panoramic... More
