ABOUT THE BIG BUDDHA IN THAILAND

ABOUT THE BIG BUDDHA IN THAILAND🍃

The Big Buddha of Phuket is a gleaming white 45-metre-tall statue that sits atop the highest peak of the Nakkerd Hills in Ao Chalong. Visible from many places across the south of the island, the Big Buddha’s become one of the most popular attractions on Phuket since construction started on it in the early 2000s. It’s known to most as the Big Buddha because the statue’s official name doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue: Phra
 
Big Buddha’s sheer size makes it an impressive sight up close, and the 360-degree views from the hill are among the best in Phuket, taking in Phuket Town, Chalong Bay, Rawai, Kata, Karon and out across the sea. Upon arrival there’s the usual array of vendor stands selling snacks and souvenir items, then visitors are ushered through the meditation hall — a large open building with a tin roof. At the hall’s entrance are a number of amulet sellers, as well as tables displaying several ways to donate to the Big Buddha project. This may be off-putting for some but the project is funded entirely by donations. For Thai Buddhists, this is a form of merit-making.
Will we be visiting the big Buddha? YASS! Infact, we love to make a workout of it and walk up to it! If your extra keen, you can run it! Join our 2020 Thailand Camp! Click here for more info: THAILAND CAMP  – Bring on the January Camp! 🤛🏼
