“Worth exploring”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

It is worth getting out and about to see the south west part of the island. This pagoda is normally deserted! Nice little beach.

“Both beach front Temple and hill top site - great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2012

The Laem Sor Pagoda is a must. The original temple was located on top of the hill above the present site. But poor old Buddha kept getting hit by lightning, so he moved to the lower land. Just beautiful! A very large site that need to be explored. The Pagoda and the boat temple are just some of the gems to be discovered on in this venue.
Before you get to the temple down the access road, there are two right hand junctions The first will lead you into a rubber tapping plantation (worth a visit for the kids) and the second (just before you get to the Golden Pagoda Temple, takes you up to the original temple site. This temple is being reconstructed (presumably with a lightning conductor0 but provides one of the most spectacular views of that part of the coast. Few visit this site and it is worth the climb on the motorcycle and the steps up the hill.
