Big Buddha hotels
The intrigue of the 12 metre, golden landmark, Big Buddha, brings some visitors to the steps of the monument. For others, this revered figure within the PhraYai Temple grounds is a place to offer gifts of food or incense and meditate, showing respect for Buddha and seeking good fortune. A meditation room, food vendors, and souvenir shops lie at the base of the stairs leading up to this seated idol. Big Buddha is located on the north coast of KohSamui, right next to Big Buddha Beach, a short walk from the temple.
- Climb the ceremonial stairs to the top of Big Buddha, which provides opportunity for meditation and reflection as well as a great view of the Samui landscape and area beaches.
- Join in a KohSamui Round Island Tour where a local guide shares details about the Big Buddha monument within the PhraYai Temple and other island sights like the beaches, waterfalls, and grandma and grandpa rocks.
- Stay at a hotel near to the beloved statue during Samui festivals like the Secret Garden Festival, Loy Kratong or Songkran to be in the middle of the action.
View Big Buddha from the airplane as you land or take off from Samui Airport. Flying into Suratthani airport is less expensive, though travellers will need to take a train, bus or hire a car to get to Donsak’s port for ferry service to the island. Seatran and Raja ferry services offer combination bus and ferry tickets. Buses run day or night with air conditioning options. Once on the island, rent a bicycle, motorbike or car to get around or consider hiring a taxi. Big Buddha sits waiting just off Route 4171 at the end of a little peninsula.
