What we say: 4 stars

The small town of Chaiya is about an hour bus ride north of Surat Thani and is home to the well-known Wat Suan Mok. The temple is a serene and beautiful place founded by the famous monk Phutthathat Phikku when he established a dhamma and meditation practice centre here in 1932. A ten day meditation-training course is open to foreigners starting the first of each month. Show up a day early to ensure enrollment. The last day of the course is on the morning of the eleventh.
