Not far out of Patong, a trip to the big Buddha is well worth the effort. The workmanship is incredible, and there is plenty of interest to see. The views are also fantastic.

Wow - it was certainly worth the visit even though it is still under construction. A very spiritual place - loved every moment of it. Amazing views from the top - it's a must see!!!!

We didn't take a tour just drove up and looked around ourselves. A beautiful peaceful place to be but they are building on it at the moment but still beautiful

Still somewhat of a construction zone, but the view from the top of the mountain is fantastic. There's plenty of attractions on the road up, including elephant rides and bird/monkey shows. A good place to take the kids, but be prepared to cover up if you're female.

"You have to go see the big buddha" "yes, Mum" We went whilst there was a lot of construction going on so It wasn't quite as tranquil as we had hoped but none the less still quite incredible. As per most other temples and sacred sites be sure to pack a sarong with you and as much as you can... More

Nice drive to a place that's got some great views. Been here many times and keep going back. Interesting things to look at and read. Get blessed by a Buddhist monk. Take some selfies, come on up for a look!
