Great Buddha Statue looks like a wonderful place from the pictures but it is overcrowded all the time. It is a nice place to explore during your visit to the city but don't expect anything special.

Been here, impressive Buddha statue. You don`t need to spend to much time here as is nothing else to do and is straight forward. Very crowded at the entrance, wouldn`t recommend coming by car.
