It's a must visit place for travellers in Phuket, situated on the mountain top the Lord Buddha's idol. The view from the top is also amazing and Big Buddha's idol can be seen from various parts in Phuket on the mountain top. 🙏🙏

There are no buses that will take you directly to Big Buddha. It's a 40 min trip from Patong so I would recommend. Private taxi and then take in a few other sites . Taxi will be the cheapest in the long run Big Buddha is... More
