Большой Будда Пхукета

Big Buddha of Phuket is located on Naka mountain Kerd Mountain at an altitude of 370 meters in the southern part of the island. This is a relatively new attraction, and it is still under development. Despite this, the place is already open to the public and there is always a lot of tourists.

The height of the statue is 45 meters and it is perfectly visible from open spaces on the southern beaches. Today it is one of the most popular and large-scale attractions of Phuket. Almost no sightseeing tour to Phuket is not complete without the arrival here, and we also recommend you to visit this place.

There is a view that, because the statue is attached to the temple, which is also still under construction, and even an observation deck from which you can explore the island at 360 degrees with the bird's eye view (remember, the statue is located at an altitude of 370 metres). The size of the statue is impressive, as I grab the top, but it's important to get here in good clear weather, and then you will be able to see not only Phuket and the surrounding Islands.

Big Buddha is not just a landmark, and sacred place to visit and therefore it should be dressed, i.e. as in any Thai temple, not allowed mini skirts, open shoulders, shorts. If you come dressed inappropriately, at the entrance can cover the visit. Since this is a working temple, the money for entrance will be waived. But if you want to donate money for the construction of the temple, you can do it in a very pleasant and interesting way: you can buy a stone, which then will go to the construction of the temple; to tell fortunes; to obtain a blessing from a monk, etc.

Enterprising Thais quickly realized the prospect of this attraction, and so along the road to the top of the temple, a host of additional attractions and entertainment for tourists: elephant parks, bird Park, Quad bike safaris, etc.

🕐 Working time: daily from 06:00 to 19:00

Good article! But I'll start with the fact that I'm not a fan of the "seal" rest, because for me it is much more interesting to explore and discover something new, to walk on unknown streets, to meet new people. But when there is no energy for active life, and, in fact, the rest, I always do this: buy a ticket to Phuket, 4 days Bendigo lie on the beach, and from there begin their active traveler. This year I took a summer vacation and realized that to go to Sochi I absolutely do not want, so the choice fell on Ty. "In Thailand this summer?", - asked my friend, "Yes," I answered and thought "seriously, what is Thailand in the summer can be", because we are well fed, but going to the website for the tours and seeing the amount that I have been on the map for my journey, the idea is then embodied in the purchased ticket. To say that mentally I have not had a rest - to say nothing! Warm sea, gentle sun, the cocktails (easier in the morning, in the evening in an adult), pleasant tourists in other rooms - a real thrill! During this period, fortunately, on the beaches freely and quietly, which, of course, could not but rejoice. I left sooooo happy. So, if you came up with the idea - not keep a idea, embody, tourism intuition will not fail ...
