this is the true picture if the Thai Culture and the walls of the temple showed all the story lines associated with the Lord Buddha. You don't find any guide or the person who can tell you about all the stories and the cultural heritage which we thought should be there. You will enjoy more with some one local who... More

Wat Chalong is a representative Buddhist temple in Thai. Even though we are familiar with Buddhist temples, Wat Chalong is totally different from ours in terms of Architecture. For western people, Wat Chalong is a good place to experience a different religion.

Lots of stairs to climb but all well worth it such a beautiful and spiritual... More

A word of advice...make sure you are wearing conservative clothing that covers your shoulders and shoes that are easy to take off as your shoes must be removed before entry, and shoulders must be covered. The buddhist statues inside the... More

We travelled here on a private tour on a rainy day. This temple is really beautiful, well kept and obviously cared for. The interior of the temples are magnificent, with wonderful murals and artwork. Well worth a visit.

I'm not a spiritual person do cannot comment on that part but very nicely built and maintained. It's so picturesque. They were doing something with fire crackers which was very noisy.

Amazing architecture and just beautiful inside and out! It shows how much dedication the Thai put into there faith and Temples.. for people that have so little to put so much money into these beautiful Temples is awe inspiring. Only negative would be the amount of Dogs and Cats that get dumped at the Temples so if you're an animal... More
