Invoke luck, clean karma and make a wish at the statue of the Great Buddha – according to Thai beliefs it will certainly come true.
Big Buddha on Koh Samui is a 12-meter statue, seated on a large hill. Many a steps take you to the Big Buddha. Before you start walking up the stairs you must take off your shoes. Besides, before going to this place you should choose appropriate clothes to cover your shoulders and knees. These rules apply to the territories of all Buddhist temples. You should comply with the rules not to offend the Thais who heartily revere their shrines.
When you start walking up the stairs, you will feel that the Buddha is looking straight at you. When you get to the top of the hill, you, in turn, also look at the Big Buddha and make a most secret wish.
Then you can wander around, enjoy the beautiful views or ring the bells with a special stick – this is a way to summon luck and clean your karma.
