Beautiful temple in a beautiful garden in good condition, great views. Take a scooter to get to it. Its on a hill top with steep climb, so bycicles are no good only if you like to push them up.

We drove Wat Tang Sai from Ao Manao Beach in one hour. The temple has nice bay views. The temple has beautiful Thai architecture outside. In the temple the stained glass is amazing and the Thai paintings on the walls are impressive. Tang Sai is one of the most beautiful temples in Thailand.

A stunning temple, perched on top of the hillside. Beautiful views from up top and the temple itself is just beautiful. The architect has been clever in their use of mirrors and doors because when you're inside you get an altered perspective!

Very beautiful place with an amazing view of the beach and ocean so bring your camera. Monks were praying upstairs and there were not so many tourists so the feeling there is very peaceful and holy

Even if you are not a fan of temples (I am) worth a visit for the view alone. A bit of a climb to get there but not overly difficult. I resort had a driver take us on a 4WD as they said it was too steep for a tuk tuk. Although stunning inside I wasn't 'moved' in the same... More

This lovely Temple near Ban Krut beach is easily one of the most beautiful wats in Thailand. Situated on top of a hill it provides terrific views in all directions of the beaches and hinterland toward Myanmar. Spotless and well maintained throughout. Only a few other people when I visited. Don't forget to look up at the intricate decorations inside... More

The most beautiful temple (wat) I have seen in Thailand. Clean, beautiful fresco and in glass windows pictures. An immense Buddha statue is facing the sea in front of it.
