Buddhist Temples of Phuket

Phuket temples, or Wats, are always worth a visit, from the temple hidden inside a cave to the famous Wat Chalong, a visit to Thailand would not be complete without exploring a few of these magnificent and beautifully ornamented buildings (‘Wat’ means ‘Temple’, you guessed it).

Phuket does have many temples and one by one we will probably list them all, but many are difficult to find or have very little touristic interest unless you are a Buddhist. Of course, you already know that you have to remove your shoes (and cap) before stepping in and making a donation even small is a nice gesture, and ultimately, it is right for you. Here are 24 temples in Phuket, but we counted more than 30, so we will add temples as we visit them. See also our page about the Chinese Shrines of Phuket which are entirely different.
