It's At the Top Of Pratumnak Hill and Is Worth Seeing...There are More Spectacular Buddha's Around Thailand, But This One Has A Big Stairway (With Serpents For Rails) And Is Ok 4 A Short Visit..

Nice peaceful place to visit which had great views over Pattaya. Make sure to visit the opposite side of the hill at the lookout, entrance is on the other side of the road opposite from Big Buddha's entrance.

The Big Buddha is a good spot to see all Pattaay in her daily beauty. Up to the hill in Pratamnuk, can be easily reach by taxi or car.

We visit there,, although my wife was skeptic when we read the review about staircase but trust me its nothing... It is very near and must visit.. Very confusing to go there... Every one takes off at wrong mountain every time but be patient and do visit...

The Big Buddha is at the top of the beautiful Naga stairs. Throw a coin into a Buddha's belly button and enjoy the view of the Bay of Jomtien.

Calm, serene and spiritual. A good walk up the hill from Pattaya or you can hire the Baht Bus or Taxi for around 300 Baht both way. Good view of Pattaya and Jomtien beach area.

Gold, more gold, more colors and more smiles!!! Liked it, recommended to visit. However it will not take you to stay more than 20-30 min. unless you are going to pray.

Up to the hill in South Pattaya, this Golden Buddha sit overlooking Pattaya. Fantastic View. We took a great video with my friends. No admission free and good walk up to the hill.
