Wat Chalong or Wat Chaiyaram is most largest and most revered. Not only foreign tourist but also Thai buddhist tourist come to pay respect Laung Por Champ. Local people also go the temple to ask for the winning lottery numbers and to pray for health, good luck and wealth.

A good place to see temples, Buddhas etc not very far from Phuket town. You can buy drinks and snacks in the area. We spent approx. 1,5 hours there, the taxi driver waited for us. It was not too crowded so you could get good photos. There were no entrance fees.

Made the the 1 hour journey by scooter myself and it was definitely worth it to see it in the evening. It's a pretty special place and it felt special. I did not come to pray, just to see it. A great sight seeing experience I won't forget!

Apart from Buddha temples, there is a temple which... More

Such an amzingly beautiful place to visit. It is a must that all who travel to Phuket visit this site. Beatiful display of architecture and so serene. Take the time to make an offering and pray whilst there. Do not rush your way through. There are several buildings to look at and people to speak with. It is such an... More

I don't pray, so I went there and took some photos only, nice environment and architecture. Two couples were busy taking their wedding photos there. Lucky enough to view certain worshipers praying and lighting red fire crackers in a huge milk bottled- shape furnace, my tour guide explained that it was for good luck, the louder the better. There were... More

This site is especially beautiful with its buildings and temples. However, there is a profusion of tourists pushing and shoving their way around as quickly as possible. It's a shame that it is lacking in any sort of a spiritual feel but it's worth a look
