“nice Temple”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Being Buddhist, temple visit is definitely in our agenda.

Stop here after visit to Big Buddha. Simple yet majestic.

Do remember to dress appropriately when visiting temple, especially for ladies. Do bring along your scarf or shawl if you are wearing sleeveless clothing when visiting temples and Big Buddha.

“More a tourist gimmick than religious”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

As a Buddhist, this didn't have the religious feel that temples normally give off. This gave off more of a tourist attraction instead. Temples and buildings were more impressive afar than up close. There was a room of plastic Buddhas where you can take photos with which looked tasteless and tacky.

A small but very beautiful temple with a lovely feel about it.
Please remember to be respectful of the culture when visiting temples!

“Beautiful Wat Chalong!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

This is one of the most popular attractions in the island of Phuket other than the beaches. Visiting this temple is a good way to discover more of what Phuket can offer. You'll never go wrong visiting this place!

“Astonishingly beautiful”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Spent an hour on a tour at the Chalong Temple, it is beautiful to say the least and as westerners we thought it was beautiful to see and be welcomed inside without any fuss or requests for money
