Temples in Phuket
Phuket Temples, Wats and Shrines
Phuket has long played a significant role in Thai history, from early times, through the tin mining boom, to the present. Throughout the centuries, Phuket has played host to many different nationalities, many of whom continue to be represented in the diverse population and culture of the island.
Foreign influences may come and go, but Phuket's temples represent a touchstone, both religiously and culturally. Locals frequent them to maintain ties with their past as each of the island's temples has a story to tell about Phuket's history. For visitors to the island, to learn more about Buddhism and Taoism by visiting these places of worship is a positive, uplifting experience.Read More

Did You Know?
- There is no admission charge at Wats or Chinese temples/shrines in Phuket.
- You will be asked to remove your shoes when entering certain parts of the wats and shrines, it is wise not to wear your best shoes (or an expensive pair), in case someone else mistakenly takes them.
- You would not wear beachwear or revealing clothing when visiting a revered holy place in the west. The same common-sense rule applies here.
