Need some colour or Culture in your life?
If so then this place is a must see when you go to Koh Samui.
This is the Wat Plai Laem Buddist temple not far from Chaweng Koh Samui.
Lake Chaweng used to be a bit af a swamp I've been told, but now it has had a face lift.
Now there is development on most sides with an exercise track down one side with the Reggae pub, beer bars and the bungy tower in the centre.
It is still a peaceful and scenic place to relax people watch during the day.
Chaweng beach is off to the left side of the photo and Lamai is behind the mountains at the back.
This is a spectacular place to visit for the architecture of the temple and statues around-about,not to mention the tranquility.
This place is growing all the time with another temple being built there opposite the existing one with this statue and a school off to one side.
This lake is full of fish and you can feed them here too if you wish or write your name on a tile that will be placed in the new temple.
