Temples

Wat Chalong

25 km
Wat Chalong has been opening its doors to visitors for more than a century. The main hall displays three gilt-covered statues of Luang Poh Cham, Luang Poh Chuang and Luang Poh Gleum, all ex-abbots of the temple. The Grand Pagoda dominates the temple and contains a splinter of the Buddha’s bone. The pagoda is decorated with wall paintings depicting the Buddha’s life story and also features various Buddha images. There is also the air-conditioned “exhibition home” of Luang Poh Cham, decorated with antique Thai furniture and Thai porcelain, which features lifelike human-sized wax models of Luang Poh Cham, Luang Poh Chuang, Luang Poh Gleum and Luang Pu Thuad.

Wat Khao Rang

21 km
Wat Khao Rang is located on the slope of the popular Khao Rang (Rang Hill). Visitors can see a large golden sitting Buddha; the first of its kind on the island and a spiritual centre for many worshippers. The temple gets busier during the weekends. It is common to see families come to “make merit” by donating fresh food and alms to monks, usually before 11:00 am. Walk around the temple to see incredible Thai art forms, including statues of Yommaraj (the Lord of Death) and giants from Thai myths, as well as traditional carvings on the temple’s doors and roofs. The temple is also famous for its founder Lung Pu Supa. Born more than 100 years ago, Supa is also known as the “Living Monk” because he lived through the reigns of five Thai kings of the Chakri dynasty, from King Rama V to the current King Rama IX.

Wat Phranang Sang

18 km
Phra Nang Sang Temple is located in Thalang district. Rumoured to be approximately 500 years old, it is said to be the oldest temple on Phuket. It is claimed that the temple was built in honour of an innocent princess who was executed for a crime she did not commit. At her execution, she bled white blood, thus proving her innocence. For this reason the temple is also called Wat Leuat Khao, the Temple of the White Blood.

Wat Phra Thong

18 km
Phra Thong (Wat Pra Thong) is located near the Thalang District Office, north of Phuket. The main attraction is the half-buried golden Buddha image, which is said to be “untouchable” in that any person who has tried to dig it out has been cursed. Legend has it that a farmer boy tied his buffalo to an object that looked like a post in an open field, then fell ill and. He and his buffalo died not long afterwards. The father dreamed about this incident and went to check the post, which turned out to be the top part of a big buried Buddha sculpture. Many villagers came to help to dig it up but only managed to expose half of the statue. A monk on a pilgrimage spotted the holy sculpture and advised building a temple around the half-buried Buddha.

Golf

Blue Canyon (Canyon Course)

36 km
The Signature Hole: Bearing the proud signature of natural canyons, holes 13, 14 and 17 are significant in that they were built on the existing canyon structure, which suddenly plunges into deep waters. Surrounded by freshwater lakes and in harmony with the earth, The Canyon Course brilliantly features natural hazards, towering trees, multiples tees, rolling fairways, long carries and much more. As its name “Canyon” suggests, the holes are built along canyon edges with undulating fairways and greens. Players have found that each and every one of the eighteen holes has its own set of characteristics, which makes for a truly memorable experience.

Red Mountain Course

16 km
Red Mountain Golf Club is Loch Palm Golf Club’s sister course, and the newest course in Phuket. The course layout has been cleverly routed to take advantage of the dramatic elevation changes, while reminders of the tin mining era have been imaginatively incorporated with spectacular holes sculpted into (and through) rugged rock cliffs and canyons. Red Mountain gives players of all levels an opportunity to enjoy a great golfing experience. Fairways are grassed with Seashore Paspalum, and with Bermuda grass on subtle breaking greens which are true and fast. Water comes into play on numerous holes and every hole on the course will present you with different challenges that require a variety of shots. Red Mountain Golf Club was voted as one of the top three new courses in Asia in 2007.

Loch Palm Golf

13 km
The largest course in Phuket, covering some 48 acres. Loch Palm has dramatic elevations and drops throughout its layout, giving an opportunity for beginners, average players and professionals alike to test their levels of skill. At 6,555 yards in length, the course is not as long as some others, but provides an experience for everyone who loves golf and could be the ideal place to start your golf holiday. The front nine holes wind around Crystal Lake until you reach the turn, at which point the back nine track up into the mountains. From the tee, fairway landing areas are quite generous, but wayward shots will be punished by strategically placed bunkers. With more than two thousand palm trees lining the fairways, you’re treated to the most serene atmosphere along with many challenging hazards and greens.

Phuket Country Club (27 Hole Golf Club)

16 km
Phuket Country Club was established in 1989 and has the honour of the being the first golf course built on the island of Phuket. The course provides a fun and friendly eighteen holes set in a valley, that meanders through hills and limestone cliffs traversing three distinct environments; with six holes in undulating hills, six holes on the level and six through landscaped forest. Phuket Country Club is a regular host to national tournaments, and will provide a challenging - but not intimidating - round of golf for high handicappers who often have the best rounds of their lives. Accurate shots are required, although any wayward shots are not severely penalised as the rough is very light. The course remains a firm favourite among locals and regular visitors to Phuket. The relaxing atmosphere and hospitality of Phuket Country Club, along with the beauty of the course, guarantee that you will be back again and again.
