“Great place to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Great few hours spent here, lovely location and lots of photo opportunities.. My partner and I visited the place in a motorbike that we hired and this was quite an adventure. Not far from Pattaya could be reached by taxi or tut tut
Enjoy

This is a nice place to add to your list of sightseeing in pattaya. Just about walking distance from walking street.

“golden budha”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

we hired a bike from outside hotel and drove to golden budha. drive is bit steep and risky but not risky from indian standards :) Upon arrival you an see beautiful carvings and can buy/ take offerings for Buddha. The staircase leading upwards is stunningly beautiful and well worth the walk to the top where you will be able to view the buddhist temples, Big Buddha being central and oothers around it. The view from here is wonderful and it's well worth visiting if in Pattaya.
Also meet the monk inside who will chant some budhist shlokas* and then tie a band on your hand for luck and some droplets of water. good experiecnce

“Beautiful, inspiring and fantastic views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

If taking a motorbike like I did be careful on the way up to this attraction, it is not for the faint hearted by bike. Suggestions would be for a tuk tuk between a few people. Upon arrival you will be greeted by beautiful carvings and can buy/ take offerings for Buddha. The staircase leading upwards is stunningly beautiful and well worth the walk to the top where you will be able to view the buddhist temples, Big Buddha being central and prominent. The view from here is wonderful and it's well worth visiting if in Pattaya.
