This big Buddha invites you forward from his mountain top perch. His smile is beneficent, the space tranquil commanding an impressive view from all sides. Come and absorb the calm . Walk up and admire the perspective from under his nose

Well worth the visit as the Buddha is certainly a site and the views are fantastic. It is quite serene inside with the monks

I can't believe how big this is. Great place to go and see. We spent approximately 45 minutes here. If you wear short shorts/skirt you are expected to wear a sarong before entering. If you are wearing thin shoestring strap singlets you are expected to...More

Big Buddha was beautiful to see, and also the stunning view from the top of the mountain. Definitely worth visiting when you're in Phuket!!

Its worth the trip up the hill to see. Its a giant statue of Buddha and not much else but the view is great from the top.

Best to go on a sunny day, since it's a temple, do wear appropriate clothing. Or they'll provide you with a sort of cloth to cover up anyway. Try the unique instrument that produces sound when you rob them the 'right' way. They say those...More

There are no buses that will take you directly to Big Buddha. It's a 40 min trip from Patong so I would recommend. Private taxi and then take in a few other sites . Taxi will be the cheapest in the long run Big Buddha is... More
