"Big Buddha" Big Buddha Tip by M.E.R.V

Big Buddha, Ko Samui: 41 reviews and 80 photos


The Big Buddha is on an island with a connecting bridge to the mainland. You have to walk up these flights of stairs to get to the buddha and it gets really really tiring especially with the heat. Your reward is a splendid view of the Buddha Beach. There is also a temple where pilgrims come to pay there respects to the Almighty. Apart from the temple itself there are many shops selling jewelery, cloths, food and other souvenirs. Fortune tellers are all around but I cant tell you if there trustworthy!
