Well worth a visit when you are in Phuket. The views are magnificent. Some construction is still happening. Was able to go inside the Big Buddha.

One of the best place to go in Phuket. I liked the atmosphere and the view from here. No doubt that everyone visit this place must have very nice time. If you are in or coming to Phuket I strongly recommend to to Big Budda.

It’s a big as advertised. I like that sorongs are free to wear and no additional costs. Good steps to walk and great views. I loved the hearts in the trees to signify you have been. Go to this one. Great views.
