Positive energy peaceful place up over the hill. Location is very good you need to climb up the hill walking. Many tourists visit this place with the peace and harmony in their heart. Its a wonderful place to visit in day time to get inner peace.

As regulars to Pattaya , this is always a regular visit - with stunning views once you reach the top there is a wonderful feeling of calm and tranquillity - The heat as always can drain your energy and suggest you either take a hat or umberella to shield you from the Pattaya sun as it is extremely hot especially...

We took a day trip to Big Buddha. It is worth all the climb. A giant. The bells on the climb up is just fantastic. The bay view is cool.

Try and combine it in a tour with other things as unless you have a motorbike or car it can be a pain to get there and there's three or four things about that don't take that long to see
