The Big Buddha really is big!!!
You can see it as you come in on the ferry into Phuket.

This was one of the highlights of our holiday. There was so much to see here and watching the workers stick each small tile on was fascinating knowing how much they had left to do! The work is so intricate!

We were blessed by a monk which is a must! And the gardens are so beautiful.
It is very peaceful with some phenominal views on a clear day.

I saved this visit for last to round off my two weeks in Thailand and it was everything and more, for a few reasons. but if you want to experience calmness and enjoy a scenic view, this is a must do.
Be kind and leave a donation, it's the least I could do and it felt great.

Great views and the big Buddha looks grandiose. Entrance is free. However, this is a building site and I didn’t really feel the spiritual charm some are talking about. Is the trip worth the time? I’m not sure...

Went with family its about 6kms drive to a hill top where this massive and beautiful Big Buddha statue is placed .Sorrounding sceneries are worth a view and good breeze over there.A must visit if you are in Phuket.

We stopped here as part of an all day tour around Phuket. Although a hot day, we loved this. I don't think you would want to spend too long here, we were there for about 45 min, taking in the great view and of course the Big Buddha. Great to experience as a family.
