  • Phra Thong temple is less touristy and less crowded. Half-buried Buddha is very impressive. Peaceful place to spend your weekend.  more »
  • Scale is not great temple. In the middle half of Buddha, was reclining in the back. Tacky Buddha-like and is like a blessing. I think that these are so-called shrine. Amateur Temple placed Japan in easy-to-understand, like me, I don't know if information architecture. If only the main building opening hours can be done in about 10 minutes. Take off your shoes when you go up to the main shrine. Admission is free of charge. Please note that the women is limited to clothing. Note that is the so-called skin exposure. Soak the photos. Went with my bike in the hotel, burned in the burning, batemashita. Not a single person I'm rowing bike during the day. It is safer to go by taxi.

Where to stay in Choeng Thale

Choeng Thale is a combination of the rural and urban. Relatively untouched by tourism, the area is mainly residential or covered in lush rain forest. If headed here, your best bet is to seek accommodations elsewhere in Thalang District. Several good options await, from budget-friendly hotels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts offering basic, clean rooms, to resorts and villas with swimming pools, ensuite bathrooms, Wi-Fi, and spa and massage therapy services on site.
