Day 33 Thailand: Phuket – Big Buddha 

Yesterday was quite a day 🙂 much more active than the relaxed beach. We decided to hike to Big Buddha. From Kata Beach it is a ca. 10km roundtrip with approx.360m elevation change. Now add about 85% humidity, sunny weather and 30° and you have got the absolute not perfect hiking weather 😎

We pulled through. Probably lost about 2kgs by sweating but so what. Also to say- Never, ever again! One look at the monkeys pretty much sums up how I felt when we reached the Big Buddha.

On the way up there is an Elephant Farm. We donated a little money and were able to help with feeding. Hubby said it feels like you are being vacuumed!

Along the way there are multiple view points, cocunut palm trees and little restaurants.

The Big Buddha is one of the biggest Buddha statues in Asia and its really huge.  Entrance is free but you need to wear temple suitable clothing (shoulders and knees covered).

The views of Phuket City, the mountains and the sea are great!

There are small buddha statues and other stuff to look at, so its a pretty cool place.
