This is worth a visit. It is a monumental piece of architecture and when it is finished it will be a wonderful place. The view is also breathtakingly beautiful.

Big Buddha is a must see place! If you come to Phuket make sure you visit here! More awesome if you walk up, you will be sweaty but the feeling when you come up is wonderful.

This place offered spectacular views of Phuket city from on top of the mountain. Its best to view in the evening before sunset. You can also see tourists of all sorts taking selfies from million different angles. Apart from that, the place was pretty nice and tranquil.
