“Very impressive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

We visited the big buddah today, we are not religious but felt we should go to better understand Thailand. When we got there we were in awe of its size and beauty. The environment is beautiful, peaceful and serene. The drive there was just as amazing with lots of little stops to soak up the views though none were as good as it was up the top! If you drive yourself do take care, the road is in the process of what looks to be upgraded so it is very uneven, narrow at times with little to no safety barriers. Don't let this put you off just make sure you take your time, it is most certainly worthwhile!!
