Big Buddha, Samui's most famous landmark, is found on a very small island northeast of Bophut. It is connected to the main island by a small road. This golden statue is 12 meters tall and sits atop a wide staircase decorated with dragons.At the foot of the main building are many religious offering stands and several nice golden statues, including a reclining Buddha.

You can donate some money by writing your name on a tile which will become part of the floor, or have your good fortune told by a 5-Baht coin machine: set the machine according to your birthday and you will be given a number; then look at the poster on the wall to find the corresponding number and your fortune (written in English also). Following Thai tradition, remove your shoes before climbing the stairs to see the wonderful view of Bophut Bay from the top. Like Bophut itself, this area remains a peaceful and relaxing interlude from the bustle of Chaweng.
