Lovely views over Pattaya and Jomtien. You can let caged birds fly away for good luck. Can learn about Buddah

Well worth the visit, we rented scooters for 250 TB and rode the 10kms from Karon town, safe traffic if you are careful and a very nice ride up the mountain with elephants on the way. The facility is a little jaded but the Budha really is a great visit!

I walked up to the hill from center Pattaya, just for exercise. Great view of Pattaya Bay from there, I recommend it for photographers. There are taxi services and you can buy gift to offer to Buddha. Fun experience.

I have been to many thai temples around the country over the years and this one is a good place for anyone, a little touristy with guys taking your photo and trying to sell it to you on a plate.

loved the sightseeing around big budda you have a chance to feed wild life like monkeys or elephant (not sure if this is responsible as a tourist- but it was interesting to see up close) we bought a beautiful bell to hang.

Truly an amazing temple with historical background. Many devotees visit this place with their families. You can see the whole Town from this hill. It is serene and holy place. A must visit for all tourists

There's a pretty view. Not as glamorous as it seems. Great for taking photos. Go to temples in Bangkok they have nicer ones.
