We were going to the night market at the Fisherman's Village in Bo Phut and stopped at Big Buddha before. It is okay, but not spectacular, they were either busy with renovations, or it is just really falling apart and in need of some serious maintenance. As usual with so many Thai attractions, you first have to make your way past various stalls and vendors selling a variety of items such as knock-off t-shirts, curios, food, etc. I believe it can get extremely busy and crowded, we went just before sunset, so it was not busy at all and got some amazing photographs with the spectacular sunset in the background.
