The centres of the Thai community, locals frequent them to maintain ties with their past as each of the island's temples has a story to tell about Koh Phangan's history.

Wats (temples in Thai) in the island are always worth a visit, from the one hidden in a forest to the huge Chinese Temple, a visit to Koh Phangan would not be complete without exploring few of these sacred refuges. Most temples and shrines can be found around south coast of Koh Phanan, but some are difficult to find or have very little touristic interest unless you are a Buddhist.

Undoubtedly you already know that you have to dress respectfully and remove your shoes (and cap) before stepping into and making a donation even small is a nice gesture and ultimately, it is good for you. The best way to see most of the temples and shrines of Koh Phangan it is just rent a motorbike and ride around the island, you will surely find many interesting Wats.
