The statue is positioned on the top of Mount Nagakerd, Subdistrict Karon, Phuket Province. Buddhists who practice the religion of Buddhism built the Big Buddha. It is one of the landmarks of Phuket Island and because it is located on top of the mountain, it has one of the most beautiful viewpoints of Phuket.

Charitable Activities In Phuket:

 

Come let us help Orphan Children’s Hopes & Dreams Turn Into Reality!

 

On the other side of the civilized Phuket city, there are many orphanages waiting for some help and support. You can help poor children to make their childhood dreams come true. Help them to live with a smile & happiness.

 

It is a great opportunity for a family activity, as todays children often grow up in a world of luxury, where toys, computers, food, shelter, and education is a given. Getting them involved in a charity activity or having a change to see at an early age the different lives that other children may have, is a great way to make them grateful for what they have. And possibly make generosity contagious!
