Did you know that setting off firecrackers in the right place at the right time could turn out to be a real karma ritual?
How to set off a Firecracker at a Temple in Phuket
Wat Chalong is a popular destination among tourists and Thai people alike. The finest temple designed typically for this area looks rich and elegant, and has an air of tranquility and peace. If you choose to head here, make sure you’ve taken your camera with you – in most buildings you are even allowed to take photos indoors, with the pictures looking amazing! Also, dress up appropriately. Ladies should wear clothes that cover shoulders and knees.

Don’t be surprised to find out that the main karma ritual featured here is about exploding firecrackers. This activity is meant to symbolize chasing evil spirits away and is carried out by a member of specially trained staff. All the revenue from the ritual goes to cover the temple’s needs.
