Sam Se Je Hud Chinese Shrine

Sum Sae Su Hud Chinese Shrine is at the bottom of Rang Hill and it really is a peaceful place to go and reflect.  

I find visiting these Chinese Temple a real pleasure - more than just an opportunity to take photographs. I also visited this shrine as part of the 9 Shrines of Phuket Town tour. Please visit and remember to take off your shoes.

Butterfly Garden and Insect World (closed April 2015)

This is the place that Jemma likes to escape to.  It is clearly a place to spot the butterflies which are everywhere.

But don't forget to buy your fish food when you walk in.

But the butterflies are beautiful
