    previously it was not inconceivable that in Phuket could find the church too, after looking at the website one of the places to be visited in Phuket is the church, so I decided to visit  more »

    That there is an Orthodox Church in Phuket, we with the wife found out quite by chance: for some strange reason no tour companies in its various promotional materials, no guides do not find it necessary to widely inform tourists about this. All (again for some strange reason) they are doing as something casual, hitchhiking. Learn about the temple, we cost a lot of effort to get information about it at-interested, above all, how to get there. However, the reception we all figured out and helped with transfer-turned Temple is located quite far from the tourist beach area, almost in the center of the island and Phuket as usual, the only way to get there is by taxi or rented car/motorcycle. Immediately want to give advice to those who will meet Temple (which, believe me, worth it!) by taxi-when ordering ask reception to immediately ordered the local machine (the area where the Temple) as Manager. Two reasons: firstly, the driver will not zaplutaet. The new temple, widely is not yet known to the public. In addition, surrounded by the temple there are several Christian sites, and Thais are not advanced enough to understand the intricacies and differences between Christian denominations, so you may well lead not there where it should be, say, a Baptist Church in Krabi or school seems to be of the order of ion exchangers. A local driver will know where to drive the Russians living in Phuket. Secondly, it will be much cheaper than taking a taxi in the city. In the recommended version of the round trip would be approximately 1 500 baht (about 2 600 roubles), and in a normal car with air conditioning (and in hot weather is very important!). The temple, as others have said, is not close-it's more than an hour's drive from Patong. And, for sure, you'll be amazed when you see the temple. It appears very suddenly-due to its forest is not particularly visible, he who unexpectedly ...

    I went and what you feel people's comments and did not pledge the Japanese, best alien. Rent bikes from the Laguna resort, leave. By trip Advisor in view 6.7 km one way, had tied up the hawks would go in about 40 minutes. It took about an hour and make no mistakes while it was from the. Struggling 3-lane road, cross and from there enter the alley, where the pedestrian bridge is a landmark. Vision is developed into the guessing, series of the Russia Orthodox Church and Russia language signpost along the way and go to the depths of a forest, the Church shows up. No one, take off your shoes in. Was a solemn atmosphere, decorated with a lot of icons. Why is this hinterland? There is commentary and still good. Sun bicycles are recommended does not. Encountered in the who's who. Too hot, comfy 2 times in 7-11 body, water supply has been. If 7-11 is hanging out may be collapsed. We recommend taxi.
