  • Genuine place, full of peace and calmness. We were not in time for the museum - check open timing if you're the museum type
  • Wat Phra Thong (Wat Prathong), near the Thalang District Office, north of Phuket Town is famous for a half-buried golden Buddha statue called Luang Poh Phra Thong (Golden Buddha) in its grounds. Its other moniker is Wat Phra Phud, meaning 'Temple of the protruding Buddha; The temple is a popular attraction for both local residents who come to pray and visitors who visit to see a large Buddha statue which only shows its upper half as if it emerges from the ground. There are several myths about the Buddha statue, been told in several styles, but all contains one main concept that no one could ever dig up this Buddha statue so people gave up, restored it as it is today, and named the statue Luangpho Phra Phut (“Buddha that emerges from the ground” in Thai). Opening hours: 07.00 a.m. - 17.00 p.m. Please like if you feel this review helpful to you. Regards
