Unique Buddhist architectures

If you think of Phuket only with hustle and bustle, you are wrong. Besides lavish entertainment, Phuket Island also attracts people by the peace of a Buddhist country.

Located on Nakkerd Hills, between Chatong and Kata, The Big Buddha is a typical Buddhist structure of Phuket Island. With 45m in height, standing on the hill, you can easily have a good view of the whole Phuket Island. The Big Buddha is made of Myanmar white stone to memorize the 80th birthday of Bhumibol King.

There are also other sites for travelers to choose such as Wat Chalong. It was built in 1837 to worship two respected monks (Luang Set Chaem and Luang Chuang). Wat Chalong is beautifully decorated with small pieces of glass. Its walls are decorated with pictures about the life of The Buddha. Local residents believe that coming to Wat Chalong and touching monks here will bring you health and luck.
