The Phuket big buddha is a nice place to visit in Phuket because you can have a fantastic view from the top, you can capture many beautiful places there and the Buddha is really nice. Inside the temple is not as nice as other temples because it looks like is not finished yet however it worth a visit if you are in the town.
The only problem here is that is quite expensive get here if you are located in patong beach, a good advice can be taking a half day tour that takes you here and some other places.

You can arrange a private taxi from your hotel in Karon beach area. You must cover shoulders and knees. No charge to go onto site. You can pay for a Buddhist monk to bless you or purchase goods where all monies go to restoring the Buddha. We purchased a tile for 300 bhat which you put a message on and will be put on Buddha. Halfway down the track is an elephant area, for 100 best you can feed them bananas and have photos.

Big Buddha Phuket cannot be missed when you visit Phuket especially by believers of Buddhism, let alone the other religious folks. The height & placement of the Idol takes you steps closer to your inner peace & moksha

Certainly with a quick visit while you are there. There are some nice views from the view spots. It doesn’t look quite done inside or as you walk up but sill.. it’s a big Buddha.
