Reasons for trip

This is a relatively new (built in the 70s) statue on the north coast of Koh Samui. It is about 50ft high and shiny gold. It is interesting to look at even if you don't feel like climbing up the long flight of steps to the actual Buddha.

There are a few shops and snack bars at the bottom of the steps but not much parking.
