Wats in general are sacred places for the local people so it is wise to visitors to watch and to emulate the way Thais behave inside temples.
And of course certain level of respect is expected here.
You don’t need to speak loud just keep speaking in a quiet tone within the temple and don’t touch the statues! Wat Chalong is the largest of Phuket's temples and the most visited.
Locals and many Thai tourists come to pray here.
Wat Chalong, or Chalong Temple, built at the beginning of the 19th century.
Its real name is Wat Chaiyathararam, but you probably won't see it on any road signs.
The temple is open from seven in the morning to five in the afternoon.
Wats – or Buddhist temples – are among the most important symbols of Thailand because the majority of Thais are Buddhist.
It’s not the first time I came here and I need to say what I like here most.
It’s not only a place for praying for worship Buddha – it’s also a good place to relax to spend a day in the shadows of big trees and beautiful flowers.
You see this beautiful park, you can spend whole day here.
It’s very quiet place except of this big oven!.
