Phuket Big Buddha Reviews
The wonderful view and impressive Jan 09, 2012
The Big Buddha is under construction, but still worth a visit. The Big Buddha is the biggest good attraction in Phuket. The Big Buddha is a huge image 45-metre-tall statue sits on top of the Nakkerd Hills . From here we can saw Phuket City it is easily from far away. The Big Buddha covered with marble tiles, most of them bought and signed by people wishing to help at the completion of the site. The Big Buddha located between Wat Chalong and Kata.
You can drive by car or motorbike to getting here. The road is almost all paved . We rented a car for this trip arrived at 3pm. The Drive up Nakkered hill was just as good view. We saw elephants trekking and great views over Phuket City. There is also plenty of monkeys in the trees and surroundings at the site. It wasn't busy day, so not too many peoples visitor on this location.
The site is free entry. Please be respectful, you need to have shoulders covered and if you wear shorts (females) they will hand you a Sarong or Skirt to wear. . You can receive a blessing from the monks will be nice if you make a donation also. There is a small museum , souvinier shops and food and drink stalls at the site. As you start to climb the steps to Big Buddha, the way is lined with hundreds of bells. The sound of all the bells really beautiful. The unique one the beautiful tree with bells and heart pictures, some couples write his name also. Surrounding the Big Buddha is a smaller buddha gold statue.
Overall the worth place to visit in Phuket. The views from the top was awesome and wonderful.
