Bangkok Thailand Map; Wat Phra Thong (Pra Tong Temple)

Back inwards 2006, on the same twenty-four threescore minutes menses nosotros visited Wat Sri Sunthorn, nosotros also constitute Wat Phra Tong for the showtime time, which was truly our master copy aim for the afternoon. Pra Tong temple is fairly good known as well as is mentioned on many Phuket Thailand spider web sites, simply owing to its place inwards Thalang (quite a mode from whatsoever master copy beach) it's non visited close every bit much every bit Wat Chalong, though on the few times I accept been since, I accept seen a steady stream of Thai visitors coming to come across the famous "Half Buddha" statue. I know that, inwards general, temples are non top of the listing for visitors, simply inwards the Thalang expanse y'all tin dismiss destination off here, Wat Sri Sunthorn as well as Wat Phra Nang Sang which are all unopen together. I'm non for certain that "temple tours" would truly move also popular, simply this is Jamie's Phuket Thailand as well as I similar temples!

Wat Phra Tong is on the northern border of Thalang Town, downward a clearly signposted side street to the east. If coming from the due south y'all involve to u-turn as well as caput dorsum south. There is enough of parking .. Space for buses too, every bit it's busy on for certain holidays. There are several temple buildings as well as a museum. The temple housing the Phra Phut picture doesn't hold off similar much from the outside.
