This temple is
the home of Koh Samui's most famous landmark the Big Buddha.
Most Visitors come to marvel at the sheer size and beauty of
this remarkable statue at some point during their holiday.
Visible from several kilometers away and even from the air
when arriving on or leaving the island , the 12 meter tall
golden image stands proud.
At the base of
the structure, several shops and restaurants cater to the
needs of devotees and tourists alike. Wat Phra Yai is in the
Northeast of Samui on route 4171 near the airport.
