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!

We stayed at the Secret Garden resort, which was really nice and the owners very friendly. The food in the restaurant was great too, so we ended eating in each night!

A proper lazy couple of days, really. Enjoy the pix...

"Free beer every Sunday". Shame we're not here on Sunday - just our luck!
