Nice reclining Buddha, free entry, lots of other small buildings that are worth the visit but a bit dirty in places, which might be an issue for some people, as noted in other reviews. Worth a visit.

Nice place to pray and photo taking, the giant sleeping Buddha is majestic. Clean and calm place for a brief visit.

Its near to city center,probably the only advantage. The sleeping buddha statue gets blocked by the pillars so its not majestic. Wat Laem Pho is much better although its 25 kms from central hat yai.
