The Great Buddha of Ang Thong



 

What :

The Great Buddha of Ang Thong is the largest statue in Thailand. Just over 300 feet tall, and about 200 feet wide, the golden statue is about three feet shorter than the Statue of Liberty.

The tallest statue in Thailand was completed in 2008, and sits on a plinth in Wat Muang Monastery’s manicured grounds. The monastery is also home to Hell Park, a group of statues depicting the torments that await Buddhist sinners.

Since the statues completion in recent years, Ang Thong has seen an increase in religious pilgrims and tourists visiting the area on luxury tours of Thailand.


When :

Travelers on tours of Thailand usually visit Ang Thong during the cooler season running November thru February.

Rains in July and August make booking and fairs cheaper for international travelers in Thailand.


Where :

Located just a few miles outside of Ang Thong town in Ang Thong province, Thailand, The Great Buddha can be easily accessed using private car service, and is an easy stop to make for travelers on tours in Thailand as they head north to Chiang Mai’s hill country.


Who :

A growing attraction for the religious devout and the uninitiated alike, The Great Buddha of Ang Thong is a great stop for travelers of all stripes to stretch their legs on the road north out of Bangkok.


Appropriate Attire :

The Buddha image sits on sacred ground, and travelers should dress modestly by covering their shoulders, arms, and legs while on temple grounds.

Candace Washington - October 2013

If you want to get the most out of your trip to Thailand and have a personalized experience that you will enjoy the entire way, book with Easy Tours of Thailand. We had a fantastic time.

The Thai food was amazing and our guide knew the best local and authentic places to dine. The amount of knowledge and insight our guide had about each site, and Thai culture overall, was so helpful. We could have visited these sites on our own, but having our guide along the way really gave us an entirely different perspective and made our experiences seem "full."

Our guides made sure we arrived to popular sites ahead of big tour groups so that we could get the best photo ops (they acted as great amateur photographers too!), and also guided us to amazing 'off the beaten track' areas that I am so glad we didn't miss. We saw everything we wanted to see and more. From the moment we were picked up from our hotel in the morning everything was expertly taken care of the whole way.

We were also provided a private driver and vehicle that was air conditioned (very important!) and safely driven. All things considered, the price of the tour is very reasonable and well worth the money.

I would highly recommend Easy Tours of Thailand to anyone thinking about doing a similar tour.
