We chartered a shuttle there from Centara grand resort and 30 mins away. We arrived and got enjoy the view for a couple mins before it started raining super hard and we all had to run inside the statue for shelter. They were having a Buddhist prayer/song session in side so we go to sit in on that for 20 mins until the rain subsided. It was a very cool experience. Went back outside and got some pictures and were on our way. The structure is awesome and there’s lots of vendors to buy for and souvenirs from. You MUST visit here when in Phuket.
