Patong Temple is a relatively famous temple in Phuket. There are many people visiting it. The tour group is bus by bus. The place is very large. There are many Buddhist statues. It is also a very solemn place.
Patong Temple seems to be relatively new. Not like the Buddhist Temple we saw in Chiang Mai. However, because there are many tourists here, so the number of tourists visiting here is also a lot of tour groups.
Very interesting if interested in the culture of Phuket, we were the only tourists in the temple and a helpful temple volunteer took us around the temple. He was happy to take pictures of us and open the locked doors for us to enter the closed temple. Be prepared to donate money to the temples and tip our guide which was unexpected and we spent 100 baht. However the church in Europe would ask to do the same. It is a bit far from Padang Beach, especially in hot weather. The taxi fare is 450 baht and the temple is located outside the central area of the over 300 baht. It is a great place to get to know the country you are traveling and experience things different from shops and food outlets.
This temple is said to be the oldest temple in Phuket, so it is also one of the cultural attractions that tourists come to visit. The statue of the Buddha in the temple is still quite good. You can come and see it. It is beautiful.
Feeling good, it is one of the larger temples in Phuket that can be enjoyed by tourists. After visiting the beach, you can save time to see it. Still very beautiful, especially like a small garden.
