This temple is a nice surprise situated about ten minutes' walk from Karon Beach. The proper name for this temple is Wat Suwan Khiri Khet, but most people refer to it simply as Wat Karon. This is not a temple which is often frequented by tourists and you can enjoy the quiet here. It makes a peaceful contrast from the action, shopping and touts just down the road. Worth a visit if you are in Karon.

Address: Patak Rd, Karon
Directions: Walk straight down Patak Rd. from the big rotunda. You'll reach the wat in five minutes.

Review Helpfulness: 4 out of 5 stars
