There are times when you’ll be absolutely alone on this, Phuket’s longest beach. If you’re into the sun, sand and sea in a solitary way then this is the very place for you.

Lung Poh Dang, the abbot of Wat Mai Khao, is known as being a strict monk who pays attention to meditation, not materialism.

Still, in spite (or maybe because) of its austerity, it’s a well-loved place.
