Big Buddha, Phuket Overview

Nestled high up on the famous peak of Phuket above Chalong Bay, the 45 meters high Big Buddha or officially known, as Ming Mongkol is one of the tallest statues in Thailand. It is located on Nakkerd Hill, less than 10 km from Kata, and is accessible by a 6km long uphill road. The view from the top is breathtaking. Make sure to dress appropriately.

 Completely funded by public donations, the statue was under construction for a long time. Now that it has been completed, an up-close visit to this idol completely crafted out of white marble is worth one time. As you reach the top, a remarkable awe-inspiring sight of the island's southern coast and the Andaman Sea awaits you. If the visit is well-timed, you will also be treated to fabulous sunset. Another beautiful Buddha statue, a bit smaller and made entirely of brass, is also an impressive sight. The place is a temple greatly revered by locals and of high significance to Thai Buddhists, so be respectful of the templeÍs customs.
