What To See At Bangtao Beach in Phuket

Bangtao Beach is a great place to go if you want a livelier atmosphere. With nice restaurants, bars, and a huge hotel complex, it’s the perfect place to go for a little upmarket style, yet it still has plenty of its own character. Thai market stands, simple eateries, and more are a short walk from the beach. Most importantly for those interested in seeing real culture in this area are the Taoist shrine and Buddhist temple located nearby.

Here are some great things to do at Bangtao Beach:

Cherng Thalay Shrine

Located on Sri Soonthorn Road, he Cherng Thalay Shrine was created by Chinese immigrants who settled here back when Bangtao Beach was still a quiet, resort-free area. Dedicated to three Tao deities, this small shrine is usually tranquil and a nice place of devotion and reflection. Several times of year there are special festivals and events centered around the shrine.

Cherng Thalay Temple (Wat Cherngtalay)

Also known Wat Cherngthalay, this is the core site of spiritual life in Bangtao. This Buddhist temple has tradition Thai and Buddhist decorations that depict important events in the life of the Buddha. The temple is lit up inside every night, creating a beautiful atmosphere that inspires deep thought as well as appreciation of the religion’s ancient traditions. The temple is open throughout the day and evening.

Canal Village

Canal Village is an area that offers a variety of shops as well as a clinic and other conveniences. It’s a good place to shop for goods that may be hard to find elsewhere, and the stores also offer jewelry, clothing, and souvenirs. One notable business is a silk shop that sells a variety of fashionable good from clothing to handbags. With art, crafts, and nice manufactured goods, Canal Village is definitely a shopping destination. The stores usually open around 10 a.m. and close late at night.
