Presentation Wat Phai Lom

Thai name : วัดไผ่ล้อม
My opinion:
The main attraction of this temple from the Ayutthaya period is its large golden reclining Buddha. Lying in the main building which has a quite sober facade it is him that attracts visitors. For the rest, opposite the main Wihaan with the Buddha there is a small pond with a round building.

Practical information about Wat Phai Lom

Be careful, sometimes the doors of the building which houses the statue of the reclining Buddha are closed. If this is the case, try to find a monk and ask him if the temple is closed. In general, they spontaneously offer to open the doors for you.

How to get to Wat Phai Lom ?

Chanthaburi's Wat Phai Lom is a little far from the river front. By walking, depending on your location, it will be between 15 and 25 minutes walk. Some guesthouses or hotels rent bicycles. Otherwise, try to hire a tuk-tuk but they are not frequent to circulate in the city.
