Head up the hillside and stand beneath Big Buddha Phuket, a 45 m (148 ft) statue watching over the surrounding landscape and settlements. Begun only a decade ago as a donation-funded project, the giant structure has come to encapsulate a sense of the spiritual and social character of Phuket. Offering extensive views of the surrounding area--and a peaceful break from the urban bustle--the statue's grounds serve as a popular meeting spot, a revered place of worship, and the endpoint of many hikes.

Been here to more than 5 times. View up from here is just breath taking. Peaceful and romantic. The chanting of prayers, chilling wind and an amazing view can itself rejuvenate your inner mind. You will feel much relaxed and calm after visiting the place. Best time to go there is after noon. Don't forget to see the sunset
This place is so beautiful! And the view from here is breathtaking! They renovated+upgraded the area of the Big Buddha, sou you have a chance to give some charity and help them. :) Totally worth it to go there even with scooter as well. You can learn some interesting details about Buddhism and Buddha, so if you have some free time (like 1-3 hours) at Phuket, let's go there. :D If you can wake up very early, the sunrise is the best time to see around from here. (Around 1PM the weather is often foggy [the air is too hot] so bring some water and hut with you]!
