Land of Smiles – Big Buddha Phuket

We took a four hour trip to explorer more of the southern tip of Phuket. High up on a hill we can see from our resort a large white statue of a Buddha so we decided to also take this within the 4 hour trip. On our way we visited a lighthouse, Buddhist temple which is the largest on the island and a seaside restaurant where we had spicy green mango salad and a spicy green salad. The seaside restaurant overlooking an exotic beautiful turquoise colour sea and in the distance there were a few island with white sandy beaches. The highlight on this trip was the big Buddha statue. Standing 49m tall overlooking Phuket. The surface is tiled in marble and after 7 years is still being built. So here are some photos of your trip !
