After renting a motorbike from one of the local places in Cha-Am for 200THB per day ($6.62) we decided to take a ride north along the beach of Cha-Am and just see what we see. One of the first icons that jumped out at me was what Gracie lovingly refers to as “The Shy Buddha” – a beautiful (approx.) 10m white Buddha statue with hands covering his ears, mouth and eyes. The first thing that came to mind for me was the classic photo on the monkeys: Hear no evil, See no evil, Speak no evil. But, I like here version better, actually. So, we now call this land mark in Cha-Am: The Shy Buddha.
I haven’t yet done enough research to determine the real name of it. Due to my ignorance I am unable to read Thai so, unfortunately, all I can do is copy/paste. Here is what I get: พระควัมปติ Cha-am, Cha-am District, Phetchaburi.
Its almost directly across from the King Naresuan Monument, right on the beach in Cha-Am. Anyway, along with the big statue we saw monks as well as other workers on the property, cleaning up. We were also able to feed some fish – some large (at least from my perspective) Cat fish in this little pond near-by.
Just a little piece of Thailand. So, wanted to share.
Thanks for watching!
