The Big Buddha is Big and beautiful and serene, but what blows you away (apart from the wind) is the bird's eye view of Phuket and nearby islands. Photographers, please carry your wide angle, zoom and fish eye lenses to capture some breathtaking shots. The temple under the Big Buddha is still under construction and I'm sure once it's finished,... More

This was such an experience and something I recommend everyone should do when visiting Phuket. My husband and I did a city tour and the Big Buddha was one of our stops. It was surreal and we managed to take some great photos. We enjoyed every moment!

Got to the Grand Bhudda by hiking up the mountain on a trail that began on Soi 16 (might be Soi 14) just opposite the SBC bank in Karon. Was staying at Pineapple Guesthouse and read there was a way to walk up the Big Bhudda from there. Walk was not easy for me (since I had not hiked for... More

Got there in time for the sunset, we could see the whole city from up there and everything looked beautiful. I think there are 92 steps to the Big Budha and although my girls were tired they got up there really fast. It was a nice new experience for all of us and also a very informative one for the...

Superb view with lots of opportunities to buy souvenirs and leave your message in the guest book or on a piece of marble. Love it

Interesting, educational and spectacular. We were lucky enough to be there during evening class for a school of young Bhudist monks. Our children were fascinated.

This must be (after seeing and enjoying the beaches) on top of your list while visiting Phuket. An amazing structure, and the view on top is unparalleled. We arrived on taxi, so had it easy getting there (if driving on your own there are a lot of curves). We went early in the morning, it was very peaceful, saw a... More

From so many places this beautiful monument can be seen, but close up is even better. There you are able to experience the ambience, view other buddist statues and information, and witness the sheer peace and calmness of this wonderful site. Well worth the visit. Highly recommend.
