It took a long time to finally find this place, but in the end, was a bit disappointed. To be #3 attraction in Phuket, I thought they would have been at least finished building it.

For the out and out tourist I would say the view is good but the Buddha itself is only half finished. Scaffold all around and the facilities are ordinary. Monkeys are cute.

We hired a moped from Karon Beach to get us up here - that was fun it itself.
Easy parking in the shade - plenty of info stalls about the project, and the work so far on this huge statue.

The information buildings were informative - plenty to look and full of wise words, spiritualism, monks and tourists. Nothing is rammed down your throat - so if not overtly religious you will not feel uncomfortable.

Ladies - cover your shoulders - that seemed to be the only dress rule we could see.

Views from top amazing.

Will be great to see it when it is finally completed and the scaffolding comes down!! Overall though the Buddha is good to see and it was nice to meet the Monks in residence.
