Wat Chalong

There is much about Phuket that entices travellers, whether it is the watercolour sunsets splashing over the world-famous beaches, the sleepy fishing villages and lush mangrove forests which offer retreat from the city, or the exciting nightlife that takes hold when the sun goes down. Among the more architectural attractions here, the Wat Chalong is the largest temple in the city. Surrounding the exquisite site, cheerful walkways are lined with palm trees set against the rolling hills of the surrounding landscape. Visit in the early morning or late afternoon to experience the Wat Chalong in its most peaceful glory.

  • Take in the majestic view of the landscape seen from the grounds of the Wat Chalong in Phuket, where Buddha Mountain is seen in the distance, concealing its famous massive statue, while Radar Hill towers over the scenery.
  • Experience the boisterous tradition of setting off firecrackers when wishes have been granted by taking note of the many pops and crackles throughout the day from the special brick oven.
  • Join in the Wat Chalong, Phuket tradition of plastering the monk statues with sheets of gold leaf and lotus flowers as part of Thailand’s custom of receiving merit.

Phuket is located on the western coast of southern Thailand. It peeks over the Andaman Sea, and is very popular with tourists looking for a tropical beach vacation. The Wat Chalong is located just south of Phuket City, in the region of Chalong. If you choose to hire a car, you will have the opportunity to drive yourself to the coast, which really is only a few streets away. Wat Chalong is about 8 kilometres away from the city, along Chao Fah Nok Road. You can also hire a taxi, which will drop you off directly at the site.
