Took about 25 minutes to walk here from the road adjacent to Trat Dept Store. I had the place to myself. Very calm and relaxing walking around the complex. The viewing tower was not awe inspiring, as you cannot see very far as you are in the tree canopy. Would recommend if you are spending some time in Trat.

It's an old Wat, lots of space, very natural environment, peaceful, because it's not in the centre, it's not crowded, you will feel very comfortable being there. Inside of temple buildings you can see wall paintings. There is a free museum on wat's territory . Nice place, very recommendable.

I always enjoy visiting all the wats and this is a prime exampl well kept / maintained beautiful with lots of stray dogs and cats all the ingredients required for the perfect temple. Take a sarong to cov up and please take heed of the signs. Today I swear a gaggle of Russians lolling all over the monks area and the space reserved to sign the book of condolence for His Royal Highness and desire me telling them to move they shrugged which told me they Neither cared nor were prepared to move.

the temple is being taken care off so well. it is much more cleaner than the average standard of the provincial thai temples. the trees and garden are very well maintained. i love the temple architectures that are small scale and simply decorated, but yet very splendid. the small,moss covered, stupas around the viharn and ordination hall look mysteriously sacred. the design of the stupa looks like ones commonly found in old ayuthaya temples. unfortunately, every door of every building was locked on the day i visited (sunday afternoon). there was no other visitor, no tourist. the temple is peaceful and quiet. it is genuinely a temple, obviously not a tourist attraction. you may need to come in the morning when locals and pilgrims come for a merit making or contact the temple in advance if you want to get inside the halls to get a glimpse the principal buddha image. anyhow, this is my favorite cultural attraction of trat.

There is nothing particularly special about Wat Plai Klong in itself. Its temple architecture and decoration is typical of a million such Thai temples. What makes it a little special to my mind is the way it is integrated into the local community right in the center of Trat City. Many Buddhist temples in Thailand have boundary walls and all the temple buildings are contained within it. Here local houses, markets, shops and small Thai restaurants surround the temple. As such, the temple (or wat as they are called in Thai) is seen to be very much part of the local community that it serves.
