I know you might have seen a little bit of Big Buddha of Phuket in my blog already in posts HERE (click) and HERE (click), but I think this awesome place also needs a post of its own.
Did you know that buddhism is followed by almost 95% of the Thai population and it is played a significant role in Thai culture and society. You can see teples and statues of Buddha almost everywhere in Thailand.
This post is about the Big Buddha statue in Phuket, Thailand that is located in Nakkerd Hills, between Kata and Chalong. We rented a scooter from Patong and drove there. It definitely was a fun trip- As you can see it is on top of a hill that offers amazing views from the top and on our way we also had amazing views over Phuket. Also the place itself has such a great and divine energy. They also provide free scarf for women to cover shoulders and legs. Definitely a place to visit if you happen to be in Phuket! :)
Have you been to Phuket, would you like to visit the island and Big Buddha one day? Let me know in the comments below! :)
