This really is a big Buddha and a very easy visit. Recommend going late afternoon to avoid the heat and see the sunset. Not too busy, free, and a small climb up some stairs to get to it.

A large Buddha at the top of a hill, other Buddhas statues too . Some great photo opportunities and some great views. It is easy to park and you do have to walk up hill a bit and climb quite a few stairs to the Buddha but it is worth it. Much better if you have your own transport as... More

Even if you've seen the big budd in Phuket I still recommend going to see this. If your not covered up enough they will provide free sarongs. There is free parking if you take the car.

Its only the size of the statue and nothing spectacular. You may skip if time is a constraint. Evening may be a better time to visit as it was too hot be comfortable around 10 30 in October.

A must go to if in Pattaya... Brilliant for adults and children and superb views at the top. Its a hell of a walk up some steep stairs so be warned. Can be very crowded at times but just be patient and resepectful. You can buy fore crackers and set them off up there in a special designated area which... More

We walked up to the big budhah and had a look around, was good for educational purposes and sight see and was all free although we did leave a few tips here and there.

The statue of Big Buddha is very bimpressive and makes the visitor to take an idea of a religion and a civilisation different from this of European countries.Every time a Thai friend of mine drves me there with his own car. From this place the visitor can have a... More
