Big Buddha Tourist Attraction

Almost completed this tribute to HM The King of Thailand can be seen from many miles out to sea. At 45m tall this is the tallest Buddha statue in Thailand and dwarfs the famous Hong Kong monument on Lantau Island which at 34m was known as the “world’s tallest outdoor seated bronze Buddha”. The views of sunrise and sunset are spectacular from the site which sits atop Nakkerd Hill, 380m above sea level. People visit daily to pray and chant at the statue.
