About Wat Bor Phai
Wat Bor Phai is famously known for the various small ponds that it has. The ponds are always teeming with catfishes. It is a pure delight to sit and watch these tiny creatures do their thing in their natural habitat.
You can even feed the fish by giving some donations to the monks in exchange for which they will give you a packet of fish food. Other than the fish ponds, there are several other temples that you can explore in the wat.
The place is usually quiet and hence is excellent for meditation and relaxing. There are plenty of shaded spots where you can peacefully sit and let yourself sink in the beauty of Hua Hin. We suggest you put some money in donation boxes placed at different places in the temple as a visitor.
It is a generous thing to do and will also make the priests very happy. They might even say a special prayer for you in exchange for this generous act.
How to Reach Wat Bor Phai
Due to its convenient location near Hua Hin city, you can easily visit this place on your own vehicle as well as on a mode of public transport. However, we suggest you come in your own vehicle to be able to enjoy the journey as much as the destination.
Don’t worry if you are a visitor and don’t have your own bike or car, you can easily rent from the top-rated rentals in Hua Hin. The temple is quite close to Hua Hin, connected through the main road. However, since the temple is not properly signed, be careful to not miss it on the road.
