Review of Chalong Temple (Wat Chalong)

Took just over an hour to look around the temple and wax museum. We donated money for flowers, small candles, gold leaf and scented sticks which we offered to the monk statues, our guide explained what to do. Had the fright of my life when someone let off some fire crackers inside a brick shell structure, the noise was loud and unexpected, it made us jump out of our skins


Review of Pra Tong Temple (Wat Phra Thong)

The hidden half Buddha Statue story about the temple is interesting. Not a huge temple so only took 40 minutes to look around. Had a car park and is sign posted from the airport rd. Worth a look if in the north of the island but not worth a special trip


Review of Chalong Temple (Wat Chalong)

Must visit place if you are coming to Phuket. You can donate any amount of money in donation box then get a flower, candle and joss stick to pray. You can also visit wax museum which is very sacred. Do not forget to dress properly!

Review of Chalong Temple (Wat Chalong)

Stopped here with our tour guide while on the way to Promthep Cape. Very worth a 30 min visiting, the long time history and magical about the temple very amazing. I saw many tourists here, both Thais and foreigners. Not just for the temple but other things like architecture, colourful intricate carvings over the building very shining and attractive. Also nice to see how people offer flowers and incense to express their worshiping. Most Thai people come here for prayer and they come back for exploding firecrackers. Just remember to wear only polite clothes, we were told by our tour guide…we were therefore ready.

A visit to a Thai Buddhist temple is a must for every visitor in Phuket. The most popular being Wat (temple) Chalong on the southern side of the island.

It is important to observe decorum and etiquette while visiting temples in Thailand. Some points to remember include removing your shoes before entering, do not wear shorts, remove hats, do not smoke or chew gum, avoid loud conversations, do not touch or climb Buddha statues and do not take photographs during a worship ceremony. Avoid pointing and do not point the bottoms of your feet towards any person or image of Buddha.
