Amazing temples - the architecture and art work inside the temples is well worth the look, but remember this is a sacred place for the Thai people and should be respected as such, when visiting and before entering the temples you must take shoes off and be covered appropriately, no tank tops, swimmers or hats etc. so for ladies make...

You can spend hours here wandering around it makes for a good day when you combine it with the Big Buddha, as they are close to each other well worth it

Beautiful temple. Nice to see that local Thai tourist also went there to pay respect. The were many road signs leading to the temple. However the entrance itself a little bit hard to spot. perhaps as it is written in Thai.

no.1 wat (temple) to visit in phuket. luckily only a short walk from our muay thai gym (suwit). its free entry and you can go inside the temples also for free, no need to pay for tours, do it yourself.

During our six week stay in Asia, we visited many temples. The one is one of the ones we most enjoyed. It is beautiful, and we loved knowing the story behind the fireworks. I am glad we heard about them on the way to the temple, and not after we got there, if you are visiting Phuket, this should be... More

The thai's certainly know how to build a temple. Even if you're not religious this place is great to see just for the architecture. Be sure to wear appropriate clothing though (no singlets or shorts/short skirts) as it is a temple. You can get incense, a flower to place on buddahs hand and some candles for a donation too.
