Big Buddha Beach (Hat Bang Rak) [ Tues 15th Feb. - Thurs 17th Feb. 2005 ]
That's much better! Big Buddha Beach was a welcome change from the hustle of Chaweng and literally just spent two days sat on the beach.
We did venture out one day, but that was only up to see the Big Buddha at the end of town. The Big Buddha stands 12 metres tall and can be seen from almost a mile away. The Buddha is part of Wat Phra Yai temple complex, where we bought some roof tiles to help them renovate it. Bad karma otherwise!
