LIFE SE ASIA MAGAZINE

Couple days ago went to Wat Chalong Buddhist Temple to photograph the Lotus Pond. To my surprise not one lotus or water lily left. Only the invasive Water Hyacinth. Killed off all the Lotus plants.

Eichhornia crassipes, commonly known as common water hyacinth, is an aquatic plant native to the Amazon basin, and is often a highly problematic invasive species outside its native range.
When not controlled, water hyacinth will cover lakes and ponds entirely; this dramatically affects water flow, blocks sunlight from reaching native aquatic plants which often die. The decay processes depletes dissolved oxygen in the water, often killing fish (or turtles).The plants also create a prime habitat for mosquitos.

Located Chalong, Phuket , Thailand not far from Chalong Pier and Chalong Traffic Circle. This my favorite restaurant for western food.

Highly recommend. Great food or good portions. Staff is friendly and prices moderate.

The one negative is off the road to the pier and traffic noises. Also poor parking but it is worth the negatives for the food.

Upstairs in the evening but i much prefere eating downstairs. Nice atmosphere.

In the evening is crowded.

Menu

My favorite fish is Schnitzel Anchor Inn. Comes with a large salad. 250 baht.

The Thai food is also very good.

Free WiFi

Hours 8am to 2200 everyday of the week.

With a Thai friend and she stopped here for us to have lunch. I have never been here.

In Phuket Town Thailand. They have 4 places but as I have only been here will restrict by review to this one branch.

Has car parking. Easy access and good service and nice atmosphere.

Established in 1946 and is “famous ” for their Hokkien fried noodles. I did not have that dish so can not comment.

I has my usual sweet and sour over steam rice which was ok.

Some of the menu selections
