If you are entranced by sheer sizes, then a visit to the Big Buddha should be on your must do things in Phuket. Located on top of Nakkerd Hills, this is a peaceful and serene place to visit. The Buddha itself is 45 metres tall and looks out over Phuket and its neighbouring towns and bays. The statue is made of reinforced concrete with white jade marble. Sunlight glints across it, creating an amazing view while the golden Buddha next to it, a smaller version made of brass, is also entrancing. The Big Buddha is a religious site, so please remember to wear appropriate clothing while visiting.
