Very scenic everywhere. Packed with tourists from all over the world. Plenty of places to get a cold drink and snack, and some shopping options.

Such an amazing piece of work, beautifully place on top of a hill with astonishing views all around. So much history and so much warm energy. Be sure to visit the monk inside for you sai sin and learn the “7 minute happy meditation” at the base of the big buddha statue.

Beautiful. Majestic. Well worth going.

Remember to light incense and pray, don’t just take selfies. Dress appropriately for it.

It doesn’t disappoint. I went on a day when it was covered in fog, then the fog revealed itself and the Buddha was there. Jaw dropping!

Best part was getting up close to the monument, the views, the great energy of the place. Worth the trip, do not miss it when on Pukhet!

Great visit. Take all the time you need.
It's probably a good idea to get a bunch of cash before you go. You'll be guilt-tripped into dropping lots of coins into lots of bowls. If you drip 32 coins into 32 bowls, life will be good.

Having said all that, this is a great tour. Take time to wander the grounds. This temple or monument is under construction - and had been for a few decades. So make sure you go inside and all around. See the pieces that will be added to the big picture.

Many great photo ops. And if you're actually open to the spirituality, this is also a great place! The Buddha is impressive. The monks are impressive. The views of the island are impressive. If your heart is open, the whole experience is impressive.

Beautiful temple with amazing views (as shown on the photos & video). Not many steps to climb to see the amazing views. Little stalls nearby for refreshments. I would recommend a visit here during a holiday in Phuket.
