Phuket Big Buddha


A smaller Buddha

Impressive statue


The Big Buddha is the biggest, new attraction in Phuket. This 40-metre-tall statue affords a 270 degrees view over Phuket’s east coast, Chalong Bay, south and southwest Phuket. Entirely covered with marble tiles, most of them bought and signed by people wishing to help at the completion of the site (one of them has my name on it…), this Buddha took almost three years to be built. The soi leading to the statue starts from Chao Fa Road West, and is located between Wat Chalong and the Chalong Circle. Many signs show the way. For sharp photos, it’s better to go there in the morning as the image faces east.
