“Bored after 5 minutes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Nice for 5 minutes or so but then i was ready to go. Dont make a day out of just seeing it by itself - go see it quickly after elephant trekking or moto riding cause its in the same area.

“Simple and nice....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Rent a bike, drive up... really easy to find.. It's the big thing on the top of the hill. :) Entry free, free covered parking for the bike so your bum's won't get burned... Get a blessing from a Buddhist monk, enjoy the view.. Great panorama view around the Phuket region. .. Play with elephant babies along the way up or down... ;)

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Still under construction but definitely worth seeing. It is actually amazing to see a plan and how everything is put together. If u do believe in Buddhism then it is a must see place if u don't a must see place as well :-)
Amazing view point. Don't bother going anywhere else where u need to pay for taking photos. Just go to this one and u will see literarily everything :-)

“See the big Buddha from the sky before you landed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

It is a very big Buddha, can even see it clearly when i'm in the sky before my flight landed. The place is about 70% completed. The place has many good view of Phuket so dont forget to bring a good camera or at least with a zoom app taking from ipad or iphone.
Come early for taking of photograph or it will be crowded. You can rent ATV bike from middle of the mountain and ride up to the big buddha.
