It was our first day of tour around the beautiful island of Phuket. We chose to go first in Big Buddha as we read online that it is always busy for tourists and luckily not that many people when we came. The Big Buddha Statue is huge and white, underneath of it is a temple for worshipers to pray. When visiting temples you have to pay respect and wear appropriate clothes not to show excessive skin. It is a holy place for buddhist worshiper and luckily it’s open for all.
We had a chance to write our names and well wishers in the heart shaped gold love lockets and tied to the area where it placed to give memory that we’ve been there. It’s fun to contribute this kind of activity whenever we travel because it’s always there leaving marks that we’ve been here.
