“Make sure to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

The Big Buddha is visible from many places in Phuket. It is really big
It is a very interesting to see and a nice place to go if you want to have a day away from the beach.

Go in the morning as there are fewest people.

“Buddha is wonderful and the view is stunning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Go here and have a look and some pictures, and buy a stone to contribute to the construction. It's just wonderful.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

The amount of work going into this project is phenominal. They are still working on it now. The Buddah is huge and you can actually walk inside underneath it. Donations are required to finish this project so spend a little in the gift shop while you're there please.There are quite a lot of steps to climb to actually reach the site but once there, the experience and view is well worth it. BTW entrance to the Buddah is free.

“Big Buddha precinct”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

The Big Buddha has the potential to be an impressive statue but currently is under construction and the building site is not really safe for visitors.
