Day 8: Next day I decided to visit Big Buddha (a popular tourist attraction in Phuket). After a nice breakfast at guest house, went out gathering information on how to visit Big Buddha. Came across a blog on "hike to Big Buddha" and took a local bus from Phuket town to Karon Beach (near pineapple guest house). From there it was a 6 km uphill hike through mountains. Its was a quiet hike with very few hikers. After reaching at the top, you can’t resist to stare at the majestic statue of Buddha. The place is peaceful with sounds of gusty winds and tinkling of small bells.
Here is a glimpse into a short video:
