Wat Plai Laem

This temple complex is completely different from the others and one can say that this is one of the most beautiful places on Samui. For some time now Plai Laem has been a must for a visit for most of the island tours, so as a result the former silence is here no more. But even if it is so, it is a wonderful place to visit - and it's totaly worth it.

There are not many tourists interested in the history of Buddhism, so basically this temple complex is remembered because it is not standing on the ground but on the water, you can also feed fish and turtles living in the pond.

Fish and turtles can be fed exclusively with the food that is sold in vending machines on site of the Pla Laem temple at 10 baht per serving. Usually people do not see the turtles, but they are there - it is just that the fish, with all this abundance of food grow up to 50-80 cm in length and literally push the clumsy turtles back during feeding. Therefore, even turtles prefer not to go into the thick of things, floating slightly apart. Turtles are not very big - about 25-30 cm in length. By the pond you can swim on catamarans (can be rented by everyone).

Pla Laem was built in 2004 on donations by local residents. About three years an artist Khun Jarit Phumdonming has been working on the external design of the temple.

At the temple there are about 14 statues of various religious deities, but the most prominent are the statue of Happy Buddha - aka Hotei Budai (laughing chubby Buddha) and the statue of 18-hand Goddess of Mercy Kwan Yin. In Thailand, she is called Kuan Eim or Phra Mae Kuan Eim. She is the protector of women, helps with pregnancy and childbirth, saves from misfortune and unhappiness. An avatar very popular in Chinese Buddhism.

The temple complex is located near the Big Buddha. Google-coordinate - 9.571615,100.066786
