    Beautiful temple entirely in teak ascension behind the temple is not long or complicated and the 2 bed Buddhas are worth making the effort!

    This is actually the new temple and although the polished teak interior is impressive, the best sightseeing experience is the old temple on the nearby hill. Take a few minutes to check the rocky areas behind the old temple - the small cave with half a dozen Buddha statues within - before ascending the 300 steps to the cave at the top of the peak. Within you'll find one of the most amazing sights at any temple in Thailand. There are two large reclining Buddhas, a line-up of seated monks and, at the furthest point in the cave, the incredible crystal Buddha.

    A very special temple build from teak wood. Visited the quiet area and quiet fishing village gave peace of mind.

    wat ao noi is a beautiful buddhist temple located on the small beach literally translated: ao noi. it is built from teak wood and relatively new. i would recommend to club up the stairs to the cave and see the beautiful reclining buddhas in there.

    Great teak wood temple with beautiful carvings and snake dragon making a guard fence around. It's a new one build in this century. Other temple is up the hill with cave with huge reclining buddha and other buddha statues. It's good view of Ao Noi (ao = bay) with nice scenery of scattered fishing boats. Buy for 10 baht food to feed big catfish in the pond :-)

    I found this temple beautiful. I love the wooden curvings and many paintings inside. Plus there's a cave nearby with laying Buddha up in the mountain from were you can admire the view. The complex with monks' houses is also interesting and on the back of it there's a cute little beach.
