What you can expect

You will be picked up at either 08:30 or 13:00. Spend a morning exploring the many facets of the country’s predominant religion during this Thai Buddhism tour. Join a local guide for a trip to Wat Luang Pu Supha, one of Phuket’s most sacred sites. Established by a master of meditation, this is the perfect setting to learn about this traditional practise.

Proceed to Wat Chalong Monastery, a centre of Buddhism built during the reign of King Rama V. Join monks as they go about their daily rituals, gaining a deeper insight into the life of Thai Buddhists and their deep-rooted beliefs.

Put this newly acquired knowledge to use at Wat Phra Phuttha Mingmongkol Eaknakakeeree. This hilltop temple is home to Southeast Asia’s largest Buddha statue. In this serene setting, you may have a chance to spend time practising meditation at a quiet corner. Calm the mind and soothe the soul while the temples bells ring above.
