Wat Plai Laem Reviews
Très beau lieu pour se recueillir, l’accès est gratuit, comme tous les temples sur l’île de Koh Samui. more »Very nice place to gather, access is free, like all temples on the island of Koh Samui.
Pretty close to the big Buddha,this was a stop to admire the various temples with varying architecture.A short visit. more »
Interesting temple. Filled with tourists though. Recommend visiting early in the morning to avoid. Worth buying some of the fish food on sale. So many fish.
Very large beautiful temple complex, nicely built and preserved. Feeding the fishes in the lake was great experience for kids. We did long stroll around all three huge statues and studied the buddha life story in the middle temple. Toilets are clean, plenty of parking space. You can buy food for fish there locally.
