Here and There … Big Buddha in Phuket


Hong Kong  is not the only place where the Big Buddha is located. There is one in Phuket as well. (Of course, the one in HK is way better XD).

The gigantic Big Buddha is on top of the hill, which is very closed to Wat Chalong. It takes you 15mins drive to there. Well, it is still under construction… However, there is a shelter for you to worship still. Climbing to the upper level, you can see the view of Phuket, beaches, trees, and beachesssssss.

It is a way to show respect!” Ok, right hand! Walking around the Buddha, you can find a lot of bells hung on the ceiling, which people believe fortune will be brought.

You can see that I was still wearing long sleeves even though it was 30 degree! SO DAMN HOT! It is Buddhist place, you have to ensure that you are not sexy at all so as to show your respect to Buddha. No beach wear, vest, mini skirt or short!
