A nice place to go and visit in the morning. It was going to cost 1800 baht from patong beach to the temple and back. We thought it was a bit expensive so I hired a scooter out for two days at 300 baht. Entrance to the temple is free. They just have boxes for donations. For the women it's... More

We had driven past Wat Chalong on the way to and from other destinations in Phuket. One day we decided to stop and discovered a tranquil spot that provides a breathing space after the hustle and bustle of Phuket. There are several parts to the temple so plenty to see including one part where you can climb a marble staircase... More

We have visited Thaïlande 2 long times ... you always have many shiny, clean and relaxing ones. Here in Crazy Phuket, you can enjoy a nice one to relax and feel stressless. Nice view and pictures to take during day but best time is Dawn ... the special light on main temple is impressive. You can find also everywhere small... More

Having walked through a street market to get there (check out the fried "bugs" and other delicacies and listen for the ear-splitting cracks from the huge fire oven) you reach some sand hills covered in flags and trees with orchids growing on them and, of course, the temple. It is built on 3 floors and you get some good views... More

We were on the way to the Night market and were very early so we stopped off ath the temple is few Km's from the market. the temples have been around for over a century and are well maintained. The Grand Pagoda dominating the temple contains a splinter of Lord Buddha's bone which makes it a very special temple. Because... More

This temple was beautiful, with several different buildings to look at. They have exceptional architecture, with beautiful details. It was scorching that day, and I had to cover up to go into the temple, but was glad I could at least sport my sandals. You have to take your shoes off before going into the temple anyways. There are a... More

Wat Chalong is not to be confused with other tourist attractions on the island, it is a practical and functional place of worship. That by no means translates as somewhere to avoid. It is a fascinating insight into daily Buddhist life in Thailand and is beautifully laid out and kept. A visit to the lake District s a must do,... More

Very peaceful Wat (temple) with lots of statues of Buddha. You can buy incense and various offerings and be taught by someone at the temple how to worship. Lots of interesting things to see and free to enter.
