Worth the visit

Beautiful location with unique temples and incredible wall art. It's worth it to go to the top of the larger temple. Very colorful inside.

Wat Chalong was a relatively nice looking Wat but after we'd already visited several in Chiang Mai and Bangkok it did seem a bit underwhelming. Clearly this is no fault of the attraction, however, so head along and judge for yourself.

There are a few buildings in the compound but the main temple was the biggest. Be sure to dress appropriately aka no bikini tops & shorts. They have sign at very entrance regarding proper attire for ladies. I was wearing shorts and a top that shows a lot of skin - I got dirty looks from one of the attendants... More

An incredible place with really wonderful temples. There is a special feeling you get when you are here. There is a feeling of warmth and happiness that radiated across the area.

Crowded place with just some buddhist temples. I was thinking that it's a monastery with large territory. But it's quite small, you need just about 30-50 minutes to visit everything.

Theres a brick oven where at regular intervals fire crackers are set off. Its crazy loud, but I assume its to ward off evil spirits. Beautiful temples, a nice place to spend a little time.
