Fodor's Review

Not far from Chalong Bay you can find Wat Chalong, the largest and most famous of Phuket's Buddhist temples. It enshrines gilt statues of two revered monks who helped quell an 1876 Chinese rebellion. They're wrapped in brilliant saffron robes. Wats are generally open during daylight hours, and you can show up at 5 pm to see the resident monks pray.
