Go to Big Buddha

Place: Big Buddha in Phuket, Thailand

Climb to the top of the observation deck to enjoy the amazingly beautiful views of the ocean and a large part of the island.

While the construction of the statue is still not complete, you can buy a marble tile and make a drawing or inscription on it. The tiles will be used for the lining of the statue, and your work will always be a small part of the Great Buddha.

Tips and hints: the best time to visit the place is at sunset. Do not forget to ask the monks to tie a lace for luck on your hand (a lace is tied on your hand and cannot be removed until it unties by itself).

Prices: entrance to the temple and to the observation platform is free of charge.

Location: Soi Muang

Open hours: daily from 08:00 am to 08:00 pm

The huge white marble statue of Buddha is no less impressive itself than the breathtaking view from the hill on which it is situated.
