If you are looking for a place of interest, I would recommend Wat Chat Long Temple as one of them!
What I enjoyed from the visit is the view of the inner and outer of the temple. The design is grand and colourful that will make it into your memories! Also, the higher you go inside the temple, you will get to see the view around the temple.
When you visit, just note that in order for you to go inside the temple, revealing clothes are not allowed. But no worries that they do have something to lend you to cover your revealing part.
Thailand is a Buddhist country. More than 95% of the people in the country believe in Buddhism. In this world-famous Buddhist temple, there are more than 30,000 temples in the country. In addition to the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, the Jade Buddha Temple and the Grand Palace, it is famous in Southeast Asia, at the southernmost tip of Thailand. There is also a temple on the island that is very worthy of tourists; Cha Long Temple, the largest and most magnificent temple in Phuket. The entire temple combines the architectural styles of southern, central and northeastern Thailand; the temple is home to 108 golden Buddha temples; a 61.4-meter-tall pagoda is newly built in recent years; due to legal restrictions, Thai temples are not fashionable With firecrackers, only Phuket is the only exception in the country.

Chalong Temple is a very important temple in Phuket. There are many buildings, but they are quite beautiful. Although it rains when coming, there are still a lot of tourists, enough to see how busy it is. When I came, some people would set off firecrackers after a while. In fact, the Thai temples were not set off because of the restrictions of the law. The Chalong Temple was specially allowed to set off firecrackers because of the many Chinese immigrants. It is very interesting to see the leisurely kittens walking around.
From the Chalong Temple, you can see a big Buddha. It is a jade Buddha in Phuket. It has a relatively high position. From Chalong Temple, you need to go around the mountain. This Buddha is still being built until now because it is not a private or state-funded building. It was built with donations from the community.
When I came here, I just met the annual celebration here. Many believers worshipped here, prayed, did not dare to go too close, for fear Bother to them. I thought you came to see me, desperate, I am here, right here.
When the Jade Buddha drove down a little, there was a lot of places to eat, looking for a small shop facing the sea, it tastes good, just The speed of serving is a bit slow, seafood is big, three people eat, the total cost of 190 yuan, blowing the sea breeze, eating food, such a small day is quite good.
