Beyond imagination how this great wooden temple was built during those days. Great view of the temple while taking the speed boat.

For me the highlight of my stay in Pattaya. It is 500 baht for the entrance fee which I found slightly expensive but it is definitely worth the trip. Work on it only began in the early 80s which I found amazing as it looks quite old. It is all made out of wood with many outstanding carvings inside and... More

One of a kind structure standing in front of one of the best Pattaya Bay view. Truly an amazing work of art. The result of an ultimate craftsmanship. Built on the concept of Truth. "Nothing ever Lasts Forever". Every part and every pieces carved and built from wood. SEE IT WHILE IT LASTS!

Worth the trip and the substantial entry ticket price (THB500). In my view this is an excellent project to both create jobs for the craftsmen, portray and preserve the woodwork traditions of Thailand and bring the cultural aspect to the visitors who care making the side trip. It is fascinating to see that the sum total of the ability of... More

If you appreciate craftsmanship and woodworking this place will amaze. Massive wood structure that they keep building and building. Families can have some fun here I think. There are some donkey or pony rides I recall.

Yes the 500bath entrance does seem expensive and a bit of a turn off. But I am glad that I did pay it. After seeing the amount of hard work and labour involved in makeing such a structure made the sting of 500baht not seem so bad. Also if you wanted to make the experience a little more value for...

Now I read it is B500! And what is worse the Thais pay a lot less. So this attraction, which was put together simply for tourists by business men is off my list of must see. It can be viewed for nothing off the beach anyway.
