Welcoming temple
May 2019 • Family
This is a very large temple including the temple itself, a Buddha, a crematorium and many other sites to see. The Master and Monks are very helpful and kind people. We had a special request to inter our sons ashes and they were so kind in helping us to do that in a very special way. This is a special place.

Wat Khao Lan Thom
Dec 2017 • Couples
Wat Khao Lan Thom is located next to Khao Takiab. Wat Khao Lan Thom is a new wat. The wat structure is basic. The Viharn is great.

Unusual temple
Apr 2016 • Friends
This tiny temple is hidden away. We had a car and so discovered it by seeing the temple and walking up the steps. There a monk receives you and show you the donation box! I asked for a blessing but didn't get one. There is a little museum up more steps with some interesting fossils which are probably worth a small fortune, skulls and some incredible monk statues which are so lifelike. We walked up the tower and then down again to get to the cave part which overlooks a small stream and the sea! On our way we ladies were given a pretty diamond cut ring (which still hasn't made my skin green, after a week!). There are golden Buddhas in the "cave" and a very strange fish tank with a depiction in it - words fail me! I do not disrespect them, but these were my impressions. The monk caught us as we went out and as hubby only had 50,00ThB on him the monk took it and wouldn't give change!! We had to laugh. This what is definitely worth a visit, but take some change and a sense of humour with you.

Lovely temple, aggressive dogs though
Sep 2015 • Family
We stumbled upon this temple when we visited Wat Khao Takiap. It's a short walk from said temple and really easy to find.

The temple itself looks really lovely and there is even more to explore. Visually quite stunning.

The monks, however, more or less ignored us and moreover ignored the fact that there are two dogs which were almost aggressive, barking and growling at us. If I would have been alone there, I would not have walked near the smaller temple in the back and I refrained from taking a closer look. It was actually quite disappointing that the monks walked away from us when they heard the barking and did not even bother to have a look.

So: visually stunning and really worth a visit. But be aware of the dogs and thus don't go alone.
