I first saw Wat Siray back in 2006 on a trip to Phi Phi  islands and have always wanted to go see it up close.  After doing some reading and finding the location I have made a trip. Its on Siray Island just next to Phuket.  Siray is mainly a fishing and boat building area and is not on the tourist must see.  There are some good photo ops here.  When you enter the Wat follow the road  up the steep hill. There is a school on your right. At the top there is a small shrine but go to your right and follow the road to the top. At the top there are many small shrines that circle the hill and Wat Siray. Take the steps up and you get to the Reclining Buddha and there is a view point where you can take a few panoramic shots of the sea gypsy fishing village and Gypsy Beach as well as Phuket Town and harbor.   Map on where

When you drive up to Wat Sirey you will find a large parking area and the road goes left and right, go right thru an area where the monks live and the road winds up the hill.  On the area is a small shrine and Wat, but its not the main shrine.

As you go up will come to another parking area and this is the main shrine. The road goes all around the hill with the wat at the top. Many small shrines all along the road. Take the steps up to the main Wat and the great view of Patong Bay and the sea gypsy village below.
