Visit Wat Plai Laem
Wat Plai Laem is a picture-perfect temple located on the north-east coast of Samui island. This temple is a relatively different temple than the others mostly seen in Thailand. The temple is a mix of Thai and Chinese culture.
The major highlight of this temple is the huge white statue of the goddess Guanyin with 18 arms. Goddess Guanyin is the ‘Goddess of Mercy and Compassion’ in China. However the temple is newly constructed, the architectural style is all ancient and traditional. Within the temple grounds, there is a Buddhist prayer room with small other sculptures, a big Laughing Buddha in open space and a fish pond. If you wish to donate to the temple then you can feed the fishes of the pond by buying fish food.
