Thailand always has been an open-minded kingdom in regards to spirituality: any religion is free to practice their belief in this country.The main religions followed here is Buddhism (following the Theravada school) and Taoism (Chinese philosophy connected to Lao-Tzu’s writings).

Phuket’s most notable religious landmarks are the relatively new Big Buddha image and Wat Chalong, the largest Buddhist temple on the island. Temples and Chinese shrines are to be found in every village in Phuket: they offer great photo opportunities and remain a haven of tranquility for people of all faiths
