Wat to do on a Sunday
 

One of the most famous and indeed spectacular temples in this area is only a short distance from our apartments on Jomtein beach..

Wat Huay Yai is revered by the locals and is indeed a place well worth a visit. there are an abundance of local markets near by where you can find everything from daily produce at ridiculous prices, through to local handicrafts and goods.

Each sub district has its own temple and there are many in the region, however another notable temple is found in the heart of Pattaya, namely Wat Chai Mon Khon. This is undoubtedly the premier temple in the region and justifiably so.

Locals are not only welcoming, but have great reverence for foreigners who wish to pay their respests to their Buddhist beliefs. Some of the Monks at Wat huay Yai, will even make the effort to speak a few words of English with you. Surely a lovely welcoming gesture indeed.

Another temple well worth your time and interest is the Jomtien Wat, on Jommtien beachfront. Even though it is less austere than Wat Huay Yai or Wat

 
 

Chai Mon Khon, it still has an impressive array of Buddhas and if you have a Thai translator, the stories of history are well worth listening to. Such things tend to give one a deeper understanding to the foundations of this society and many of the fundamental things we find so appealing about it all.
