As Thai temples go this one is pretty average. Neither particularity historic nor ornate. However, it was relatively quiet for December, it was clean and tidy, the garden areas were lovely. If Phuket is your only stop in Thailand, then you should make the effort to go. If you are going on north then you can give it a pass!

The Wat Temple is a must see when you visit Phuket. Not only is it the most famous temple in all of Phuket with a rich history but its easy to get to location means there's no reason not to visit. The opulence and vibrant colours of the temple are magnificent, as is the view and make for plenty of... More

This was an absolutely beautiful temple! It's definitely worth visiting, and I found the statues of the elephants to be a distinctive feature. One notable sad aspect is the number of stray dogs, here and everywhere, especially at the temples. One particular dog was young, still teething, and had an especially sweet temperament. We observed her being bullied by the... More

I visited here whilst renting a moped on holiday. There are a number of ornate buildings to enter and photograph. A good amount of free parking, no entrance fee, lovely gardens to walk around.

Wat (Temple) visiting is a must to do when you travel to places like Thailand, Cambodia and Laos. Wat Chalong is the famous temple in Phuket. According to my tour guide, it is famous to the Thais because you get what you wish for, so the Thais love to go to Wat Chalong to pray. The Wat is a simple... More

Definitely worth a visit if you are in Phuket, we were in two minds whether to go or not but glad we did. We hired a taxi for a day (1200 baht) from Patong and did this and the Big Buddha (would also recommend). Beautiful temples and architecture and lovely and peaceful (except the firecrackers!!) There is no charge but... More

Absolutely beautiful temple, pagoda, crematorium, and other buildings. Lovely gardens, gorgeous colors, interesting aspect of Thai culture. Worth seeing. The little shopping area offers typical souvenir items. A little pricey, but if that is your only opportunity to shop, then you'll be able to find a little part of Thailand.
