Wat Hin Lad

Set in forest-type gardens

What we say: 3.5 stars

Wat Hin Lad is set in forest-type gardens that boast gigantic trees with exposed twisted roots, vines with scented blossoms and fruit trees.

Hear the waterfall and river in the background as you walk on moss-covered paths, past inspirational signposts nailed to trees and visit several temples on the grounds. Signs indicating 'shoe parking' ask you to leave your shoes outside as you enter temples to ask a monk for a blessing or prayer.

Entering the temple grounds past the elephant trekking station, walk over a bridge crossing the river and come to a pearl-coloured Buddha statue.

Mottled by the shadows from the tall trees, this statue's cool silvery exterior is a sharp contrast to the glaring gold of Big Buddha, or the colourful hues of the two Buddhas at Wat Plai Laem.
