Located Chalong, Phuket Island, Thailand.  A must see and worth the time to go. There not be a more photograph place on Phuket Island than this place or a place that is on everyones list to see. I have been here many times over the years. I dont go much now except maybe on the week ends when they have a festival with lot of open markets and little stores selling stuff to local Thais and tourist. It is the largest of all the Wats on Phuket Island and the most important. Its formal name is Wat Chalyathararam( Thai: วัดไชยธาราราม). Dedicated to two monks Luang Chaem (หลวงพ่อแช่ม) and Luang Pho(หลวงพ่อช่วง)  The tallest of the buildings houses a bone fragment of the Buddha. The building is 3 stories high so good view. As with all visits to temples or Wats, when entering shoes off and it is inappropriate to go into a wat – a place of worship – wearing clothes that reveal one’s shoulders, chest, belly or legs.                   Map and directions Wat Chalong

Wat Sapum Thammaram

Located Phuket Thailand just north of Phuket Town. A quite and lovely place to visit with a camera or just to enjoy the beauty. I have been there twice and have not seen a tourist. It is used by the local Thais and is not on the tourist list. When trying to find out more, could not find any info. It is on a main road between Phuket Town and the airport, but sits up on a hill and is very easy to miss. Well worth the trouble to find and spend little time before others discover it.  It is next to a large Thai burial grounds. There is no parking along the main road, but headed to Phuket Town, drive just pass it to the first road on the left and up the steep hill. First little road to the left leads to the temple. A good time is early morning as the Wat faces east and you can see the Andaman Sea. The morning sun will help in the photographs. East of the temple are some steps to a small garden. I saw a Thai wedding party taking photos there. Not big but take a look!   map  to find and get there.  Part 2 will show the Garden

Don’t stand up !!!! Interesting for the traveler too much so this is unseen and amazing Thailand.
