“Nearly finished!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Great views. Can be very hot but worth it. Have been coming here for four years and seen the advances made each time. It is a beautiful statue.

“Interesting and worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Be careful on the road up to Big Buddha, it's bad even by Thai standards. Once you are up there it's worthwhile. Many Buddhas to see and you can see which Buddha you are (by which day you were born). Great view on a clear day, go early before the crowds arrive.

“looks better from a distance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Is is must see place, however there is nothing really picteresque or interesting there. It looks impressive from a distance and it is a good advice to find some distant viewpoint to make pictures of the statue. There is some temporary restoration works so part of the statue is actually covered.

“PHUKET BIG BUDDHA KARON PHUKET THAILAND”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Over looking the village of Phuket from high on hillside, ia massive Buddha.It can be seen from puket village,but to walk there would take most of the day.A Taxi which should cost about 2-3 thousand baht is well worthwhile.One does't realise how large it is till you stand at the base of it.The views from to hill are wonderful.Somtimes in the village of puket ,you hear if yhe wind is in the right direction the chants of buddhist monks it sounds soenchanting.
