  • This temple complex is spread out over a couple of acres with over 6 individual temples to look at . Stunningly beautiful inside and out. Just be aware you have to take your footwear off , this wasn't a problem until it poured rain for 20 mins and most people's shoes went floating away in 4-6 inches of water . Hilarious !
  • We had a great time here. Beautiful buildings and temples. Lovely to see all the traditions too.
  • Beautifully designed and kept temple, lovely gardens and a few peaceful spots among the throngs of tourists. Worth the visit!
  • Beautiful architecture with an astonishing design,, make sure you charge your phone coz you'll be needing to take lots of pictures
  • Awsum place. Highly recommend doing Wat Chalong and Big Buddha on the same day because the are in the same area. Bring a camera coz is a great place to take pics.
