Another interesting temple. It’s a long walk up or take a moped or car - easy parking - to the top. 20baht to enter. A good view of the east side of the island. You’ll spend 20 to 30 minutes there at most.

All made in red terracotta, so peaceful and near the sea. There's also a cemetery near by with a beautiful gold temple, and a pool with lotus flowers

This was one of the nicest temples we have visited in thailand, we came at sunset and the view from the platform by the ocean was amazing, the temple building itself is a bright terracotta colour. Lovely place to visit.

Amazing example of Thai architecture. Unusual because it is all red. It is absolutely stunning. My favourite temple on Samui

From the moment you walk through the gate, this Wat takes your breath away. The amazing terracotta building is so full of detail that you walk round and round it seeing different thing's. Then to go inside is something else again. Walking around the grounds...More
