The Giant Buddha (or Wat Yai, as many people call him) is towering clearly visible from half of Phuket Island over Kata Beach and Chalong Bay. Even though it is still not finished completely, it is fast becoming one of the most visited attractions of Phuket.

Sights of Phuket Island Like any other vacation destination, Phuket Island has its share of breathtaking sights to explore. No vacation to Phuket Island is complete without taking in all the sights it has to offer. There are traditional temples, beautiful coral reefs, and hidden marine caves just waiting to be explored. There is also a small portion of rainforest left and a Gibbon Rehabilitation Center that are worth checking out.
