We have had a very good/interesting luck to live by temples or churches wherever we have lived. At least, in the past few countries. Now, we live right next to Wat Chalong, the largest Buddhist temple in Phuket. Although very touristy, the temple has stunning architecture and is almost like a pilgrimage site for Buddhists throughout Asia; I see many buses of Koreans coming to pray at the temple.
It is a fantastic place to take children ( in the early evening, when it’s not too hot). Kaya loves the elephant statues and garden.
