Located a gentle 10 minute walk from Big Buddha, Wat Plai Laem is one of the most beautiful temples we saw in Thailand. It's truly exquisite with a very spiritual feeling. (And that's coming from one of the least religious people on the planet.) Be sure to buy some fish food for the catfish! There's something slightly disturbing watching the waters roil with fish everywhere you look. There's a little pond filled with massive frogs too!

Wat Plai Laem is a wonderful set of temples surrounded by pools of water that are filled with catfish. The obvious highlights, however, are the truly massive statues of a happy Buddha and the goddess Guanyin. We loved these temples and had to tear ourselves away to continue our tour of the island.

My partner and I strolled around for hours, there’s so much to look at! Everything is so well kept and beautiful. We arrived as they were feeding the pond of catfish too which was really cool to watch.
