  • Opening hours 08:00-17:00, you're allowed to take pictures inside the temple. Simply stunning, the craftsmanship is beautiful. The temple is made entirely of teak. Be sure to make a stop here if on the way to the cave of the reclining Buddhas. Also be sure to visit the abandon seashell temple (on the stairs to the cave).
  • 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 :-)
