Wat Plai Laem Koh Samui Reviews
Amazing Temple on Koh Samui Jan 13, 2012
Me and Arianna spent half day for touring the Koh Samui seeing the temples. Wat Plai Laem located very close with Big Buddha or 3 km from Koh Samui Airport. Wat Plai Laem is one of the most colorful temple on Samui and features an 18 arms strong Buddha statue set in the middle of the lake. The lake with many of fish . To get to the statue we should walked on a marble bridge. I was saw some pigeons playing on the marble bridge. The pretty garden on front the temple made the temple location more beatiful.
In this place, there is a massive high statue of the smiling or laughing Buddha. Both statues are surrounded by various other smaller statues of Buddha and other monks and gods as well as several colourful paintings. All kind of buildings look attractive and awesome.
Be sure to wear shirts or scarves that cover the shoulders, and trousers if you will enter inside the temple.
Overall on Koh Samui , i felt happy because had learned cultural experience of samui not only the pretty beach scene . It is one of the most amazing places, you should visit this place.
