Brief Directions

Hire a moped from one of many providers in Phuket and simply head up! You can see The Big Buddha statue from most places in Phuket as it sits atop the highest point of the island. Once you get within a few miles it is well signposted in both English and Thai.

Description

I was shooting the magnificent statue still under construction at the highest point in Phuket, South Thailand when a troop of wild monkeys descended upon the temple grounds. They moved through the area and in among tourists with ease happily accepting any offers or findings of food or drink and after causing some typical mischief all moved off to the next spot. It was a wonderful experience to have these truly wild animals happily playing in my presence and I think this shot captures the relaxed intimacy they share with their human counterparts.
