The Big Buddha with a Big View
Aug 2021
I hired a van driver to show me around Phuket and he suggested going to see The Big Buddha. I am so glad we did. Great visit and panoramic view of OldTown Phuket.

Beautiful experience

Big Buddha is a must see when on the island. The journey up the mountain is not hard at all as long as you have a good bike or car. The views from the top of the mountain are breathtaking and the Buddha statues themselves are beautifully oriented.

Amazing trip to the top of the mountain
Jul 2021 • Friends
We could see the Big Buddha on top of the mountain from our villa at Como Yamu. We hired a driver to take us up to the top. It was a great drive up to the top of the mountain with great views of the towns and the sea. We came here as part of the Phuket sandbox. Upon arrival, they checked our temperatures and gave us hand sanitizer and made sure we had masks. There was no charge to get into the grounds. The grounds are well maintained and clean. There is the big Buddha, and there are quite a few other smaller Buddha’s. The views are spectacular, and you can see Karon Beach and the entire southern part of the island, along with Chalong below the mountain. Overall a great experience. Highly recommend for a day away from the beach

The views are spectacular

The Big Buddha is a very interesting site.

Free to visit (although donations are welcome to support ongoing construction work).

There are a couple of well placed and unobtrusive shops, one of which sells snacks and drinks at reasonable prices.

The views are spectacular, from different points you can see views of most of the island

It's a new landmark in Phuket city.

The big Buddha is very big. It's constucted on the hilltop. So, We can enjoy panorama view of Phuket from there.

Amazing spectacle
Feb 2020 • Friends
Big Buddha is one of the prime tourist attractions in Phuket and we had visited the same as part of our full day sightseeing in Phuket. It is located on the top of the hill and the giant idol of the Lord in sitting posture is a great sight. The views of the surrounding area from the top is absolutely mesmerizing - blue sea and green island and white boats floating around. People were offering prayers to the Lord. You can also buy small souvenirs - the money from which goes for charity.
