  • Relaxing place to while away some time. Bit of effort to climb stairs to see the Buddha but well worth seeing. Monastery is stunning
  • Lovely place. Came to see the large Buddha, but the entire area is well-maintained and aesthetically pleasing. The ride up takes a little while, and to walk to the stairs under the Buddha could take up to 10 minutes, depending on your pace. The views from the base are good, but there are a lot of people climbing the stairs to the Buddha most of the time. A couple of large temples that can be visited as well.
