Check out the latest video: AWESOME BIG BUDDHA PHUKET THAILAND and a Bunch Of Smaller Ones WAT CHALONG

“Phuket Big Buddha started in 2002 as the foundation stone was laid by General Phijit Kulawanich, Privy Councilor, on May 22, 2002. The official name is ‘Phraphutthamingmongkhol-akenagakhiri Buddha’ that translates as “Happiness on top of Nakerd Mountain”. The statue is built with people’s donations and is still under construction. If you want to help finish the construction, you can sponsor a white marble piece for 300 or 1,000 baht, depending on the tile’s size. At this time, the Buddha is complete, but the sweeping staircase is still under construction.”

Pretty close to the “center” of Thailand’s biggest island, the ever-popular, world famous, Phuket there is a SPECTACULAR Big Buddha. Many places that we get to travel to in this wonderful country have what the locals will frequently refer to as “Big Buddha”. Indeed, many are what would be referred to as a “tourist” area. And, Big Buddha in Phuket is for sure one of the places that will be highlighted on the laminated photos that will be in the seat back of most taxi’s BUT one of THE best things (in my opinion) that has come out of this whole COVIDiot-ness is that traveling is like doing it on the One Day A Year when for some reason, no one else is traveling. Arguably this is Very Bad for those who generate revenue and live off of the financial contributions that tourists bring to a region. YES, THAT SUX! The “silver lining” in that however is that for Gracie and I – a couple lucky enough to basically be on vacation for the rest of our lives – we have gratitude attacks, OFTEN, because we GET to experience SO MANY BEAUTIFUL PLACES while tourism is essentially down 90%. Today’s experience at Big Buddah in Phuket was magical – I hope the camera and my commentary add to your day, if only a small part. If you have not come here – GO!

Together, we hope wherever you are you’re safe, happy and LIVING THE DREAM!
All the best,

~mikes & Gracie
