“Excellent and well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

It was a bit rainy the day we visited which made it all the more interesting as we ended up travelling through the low cloud to reach the big budda. On route we stopped at one of the many places to trek through the jungle on a elephant. The big budda is a free attraction and there are donation boxes throughout should you wish to donate but there is no pressure. The site is under construction but if you are a little bit spiritual or open to religion then this is well worth a visit if nothing more than just a nice day out.
