“Interesting and informative”
Reviewed 8 December 2013 via mobile

Great day out to see the Temple of the Buddhist. It's a beautiful temple and so beautiful inside. It's a must see. They sometimes let off fireworks as well. Remember to dress conservativly and cover up your shoulders and don't bare too much skin out of respect for them. They will give you a shawl to cover up if they think your showing too much skin and remember to take your shoes off when entering the temple. A must do.

“Incredible detail”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

This place is amazing - the detail on the various temples was incredible. Probably not the ideal place for families with young kids, as the need to for shoes to go on and off and the many, many stairs can make it a challenge

“A Pleasant 30 Minutes”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

True, Wat Chalong is a beautiful temple but there is very little to set it apart from others I've seen (which is not many).

You can get some excellent photos from the third floor of the main temple and the main foyer has some wonderful murals depicting the story of Buddha. It's worth a visit but I wouldn't schedule my day around it.
