Phuket's Big Buddha is just minutes away from The Mangosteen Boutique Resort and Spa and can be seen from there as well. Known among Thais as the Phra Puttamingmongkol Akenakkiri Buddha in full, it is 25 meters across at the base. The whole body is layered with beautiful white Burmese marble that shines in the sun, making it a natural symbol of hope. Though it is not yet 100% complete it certainly is worth a visit as the site, the views, and the actual image itself are all breathtaking.
