It is very much worthwhile to climb the stairs to the monks' cells above the main temple, and if you're not weak, to the Buddha's Footprint. Remember to light the required number of incense sticks in the main shrine, and if you want to be sure of good luck, light a few hundred firecrackers, too. What you first took for machine-gun fire is other visitors' giving this explosive notice to the spirits that they have come.
During Chinese New Year in February, the island is overrun with Chinese visitors from the mainland. This is one of Thailand's most interesting Chinese temples, with shrine caves, multiple levels and a good view of the ocean.
