Remove your shoes when you enter a Temple in Thailand.

There are a great many Buddhist temples that you can visit in Phuket – I believe that you should take the time to visit some of these beautiful places.

BUT I was very surprised yesterday.

During a visit to Wat Thepakajonjit on Rang Hill I indicated to 2 tourists from Europe (who had not removed their shoes) that I thought that they should remove their shoes…

Their reply was – “but it’s hot”.

Visitors to Thailand please respect the culture of Thailand, 
read a book before you come 
OR read the sign
OR it is hot in Thailand.
