“A must see when coming to Phuket”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

The fantastic 360 degree view of the southern end of Phuket - if the weather is clear you can see the surrounding beaches of Kata, Karon, also Coral Island, Racha Islands as well as Phi Phi!!!

“Amazing views, impressive Big Buddha.”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

We had a driver for the day and made this one of our stops. The Big Buddha is still under construction and you can help contribute to it by donating 100 or 300 baht for a tile, you also write a private message on the tile. You have the option of being blessed by a Monk for good luck. great look out, amazing views, worth a look. Free entry.

“The Big Buddha”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

The Phuket Big Buddha is a fantastic new attraction for Phuket, better than all the shopping malls like Junkceylon or Outlet. The Big Buddha picture will be on all marketing material which will improve the disastrous image of Phuket considerably.

“great views from Big Buddha mountain”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

We loved the ride up to Big Buddha on the motorbike, the view at the top of the hill was excellent, seeing Big Buddha close up, (for free) was well worth the trip, and a fresh young coconut drink on the way back down the hill at one of the restaurants with more amazing views was the perfect refreshment.
