The Buddha statue depicts Gautama in a sitting position (Maravichai: มารวิชัย) and is 45 metres (148 feet) tall and 25.45 metres (83.5 feet) wide. It is made of concrete and covered with Burmese white marble.

Shorts, T-shirts, tight pants/leggings, bare shoulders, and any overly casual clothing should be completely avoided. Loose fitting jeans are OK if you have a nice top/shirt, but not ideal.
Good to know about Big Buddha Temple in Koh Samui
You can see locals bringing offerings to the temple and monks do their morning chants. Since this is a sacred place, do dress modestly. Wear shirts or scarves to cover the shoulders, trousers or long shorts. Beachwear isn't allowed when visiting the Big Buddha Temple.
Shoulders should be covered and long pants should be worn rather than shorts. Some temples in tourist places may be more lenient, but your modesty will be appreciated. Some, but not all temples, may provide a sarong or other cover-up for a small fee if the gatekeeper thinks you're not covered up enough.
