What a fantastical museum this is, set inside and around a former Chinese temple. It is on 3 floors and set in extensive grounds. You could spend hours there. It is stuffed full of exquisite pieces of Chinese artefacts including several terracotta soldiers, horses and chariots from the famous terracotta army site in Xi'an, China. This is the ONLY place...

I enjoyed the natural surroundings, the atmosphere, the statues and colors Explanations The place is accessible, beautiful and affordable especially Can also be reached independently without a car or taxi, by Toktok in Sukhumvit rd towards up East, while seeking the driver to let this destination junction. Then take motorbike, so you pay quarter of cab cost

Indeed a nice collection of statues and art, clean and well maintained. Absolutely worth the trip. Combine this with the Big Buddha mountain image a bit further up and you'll have a nice afternoon.

everything, especially the white jade Quan Yin and the wonderful art works. There are numerous statues of the glorious Quan Yin. The warriors on the upper deck are wonderful. There is an enormous Jade pagoda also.

The location in lush countryside is a short drive from Pattaya yet feels a million miles away. To the one side is a lake and in the distance a mountain view. I visited early morning and all was idyllic The statues - especially the bronzes of men performing martial art manoeuvres are spectacular. The Chinese and Thai art is very... More
