Fodor's Review

West of town, Wat Yai Prik is easy to spot as you near the island by boat—it's on the top of a hill and has eight 40-foot reservoirs. The wat often donates drinking water to villagers when they need it. But Yai Prik is as dedicated to the spiritual as it is to the practical. Meditation courses are available, and signs throughout the grounds explain Buddhist principles. Simplicity rules here—though donations are accepted, the monks don't collect money to build ornate temples.
