So, the first pictures are from Wat Chalong Temple in Chalong. The main religions in Thailand been Buddhism and Hinduism and Sea Gypsies.
Almost every house and business in Phuket has little bird cages. Wish I could bring one with!
Speaking of uphills, the Big Buddha of Phuket on top of Mount Nakkerd at Soi Chaofa is a huge tourist attraction. This is the world's biggest Buddha statue, constructed of reinforced concrete casting, adorned with white jade marble-Suriyakanta. The dimensions are 25.45 meters wide and 45 meters high. And trying to reach it by scooter was not possible. We had to pay someone to take us up with his vehicle and bring us back down ;-)
Needless to say I've enjoyed every second in Thailand. The people are friendly and helpful, the weather was perfect and the cuisine excellent! I will definitely visit the island and her beautiful people again.
