We were really impressed with the views from the top of the small mountain where Big Buddha is located. The temple is having some renovation work being done but is still nice.

Whether you're a fitness nut and run/walk or scoot up in another way the view from the top is great. Take a little money for the monks souvenir stalls if you're that way inclined.

This is one of the must see attractions in Phuket. The Buddha is huge and is visible from many points around the island. The temple buildings around the site have a number of Buddhist items to view. Being a temple area shoulders must be covered....More

What I call a "bucket list" item to do. Such a beautiful, serene place. The drive up was rugged but once you get to the top it has the awesome views. Take your time to look not only on the outside at all the beautiful...More

Well worth the visit. The work that has gone into the buddha is amazing and the view of Phuket is amazing. Also, the kids loved the local monkeys.

Big Buddha located is located on top of a hill and offers panoramic 360 degree views of Phuket island. They are quite breathtaking. The site is slowly being developed, which is mainly reliant on donations from people who visit. Nice way to spend an hour...More

A tourists attraction and a brand new location in Phuket. You can come here for a blessing and the view is great, but everything is under construction right now.

The Giant Buddha is amazing and still under construction we went up by bike to view this amazing sight. The journey up to it took in some lovely view points and the the view point at the Giant Buddha was beautiful well worth a visit!

Bit of a no-brainer particularly if you have your own wheels or driver for the day. For me the views trump the Buddha itself but as a package its an hour well spent. Don't get distracted by the ATV and elephant farms on the drive...More

There are no buses that will take you directly to Big Buddha. It's a 40 min trip from Patong so I would recommend. Private taxi and then take in a few other sites . Taxi will be the cheapest in the long run Big Buddha is... More

It'll be a long hike up, and then coming down too. However the path is easy to follow and it's clear. If you are going to hike up there leave plenty of time to get back down so that your not on the path in the dark. When we... More
