that turned into a dirt path.
Hot, sweaty, I wanted so bad to get into the water however, upon arriving I was very disappointed.
Apparently the rainy season has not started and the falls are but a mere trickle. Oh well, I did see this forest crab …
One temple I wanted to see is called Wat Chalong about one hour South from here (See map). Wat Chalong is one of the more beautiful temples in Phuket.
Some do’s and don’ts.
Don’t position yourself higher than a Buddha, don’t touch a monk, and DO donate a few baht.
Buddhist come to pray, give offerings of gold leaf, or look for good fortune. This lady is shaking a cup full of prayers printed on sticks; the one stick that falls to the ground will spell out her fate.
Later that night I returned to Pantong beach and my hotel. Phuket has great seafood. I visited the Savoey restaurant where you pick out your seafood and the chefs will cook it how you like it.
One small lobster and one huge prawn should do it.
