          Standing on an outcrop just 3 kilometers from the center of Pattaya, the Sanctuary of Truth is a truly beautiful and visionary place. Thanks to the vision of one Thai businessman. This magnificent temple is amazingly made entirely from wood, the Sanctuary of Truth has inspired the revival of traditional Thai building techniques. Every piece that has gone into constructing it is wood. That’s right – even the nails, connectors, everything is wooden. That’s incredible, right? As you wander the grounds, taking in the experience, you will be impressed with the design and the tranquillity of the Sanctuary. There are four wings to the temple, which take in the inspiration of Thai, Khmer, Chinese and Indian spiritual art. It is not just the beauty of the woodwork that is impressive about the Sanctuary of Truth, it’s the size. The building is 20 storeys high, and about as wide. You will not only find inspiration and a sense of peace here – you will also find enjoyment in the activities that the Sanctuary of Truth has on offer for visitors. Highlights include Thai cultural dancing and you can even opt to see the temple from the water with a ride in a speedboat. There will be no regrets from you or any of your fellow travellers if you choose to visit this beautiful place.

          5* service as always
          Used these guys again in January 2024 and May 2024. Honestly the best company to use for taxi transfers. They keep you updated with what car, which driver and will answer any questions you have. I have used them every trip, 4 times a year without any issues and will be using them again in November. Thank you Paul and Lexi and all the drivers.

          A thoroughly enjoyed full tour day through pattaya central. Com
          We had a fantastic private tour with multiple activities and had a lovely professional driver (Mr Nine) organised by Pattaya central.com. Driver was on time and all smiles and went to each place at our own pace. We was driven around in a smart vehicle with much needed Air conditioning. We wanted to book a hassle free all day tour to different places which we organised through Pattaya Central.com and the highlight of our day was visiting The Tiger Park. I would definitely recommend booking through Pattaya Central. Com for very reasonable prices for tours and taxi transfers. :)

          Pattaya with private car
          Pattaya is a terrible place: ugly, loud, vulgar, congested and filled with tourist traps. But experiencing it with our private driver - Nine, who was nice, efficient, and an excellent driver - at least created some comfort and the luxury of leaving when we wanted and change itineray underway. The only thing in the whole of Pattaya that not feel totally as a tourist trap was the Jungle Elephant Sanctuary, which was expensive but interesting and worthwhile with diginified interaction with the animals. Diner at the Hilton rooftop bar/restaurant was also very nice; it's a stylish place in the niddle of the hellhole that is the seedy 'entertainment center' of the city.

          You have seen the rest now try the best.
          Simply the best and most efficient private transfer service in Pattaya. Prices are fixed with the option to pay the driver once they arrive. All cars are modern and clean. I have used many times and never been let down.Every driver is polite. How many taxi service allow tired customers to sleep in car knowing everything will be fine now need to worry best 2hrs sleep in car. Positive note. Drivers are always a little early for pickup from Hotels and will monitor flights for any delays for airport pickup. Pop down to LK Metro and say high to all team always happy to help. They all use Line or WhatsApp to keep in touch.

          Excellent Service
          This was my first time visiting Thailand . Pattaya Central provided me with a wonderful first experience of Thailand. They handled my transportation from BKK airport to Pattaya professionally. Driver was very polite and spoke English. I plan to use them when I come next time as well. If you want to have a worry free experience, you cannot go wrong with Pattaya Central. I highly recommend them.

          Easy to communicate with.
          This was the second time I used the service from this company, and it was a great experience. I order pick up at the airport, going to Jomtien, and two weeks later return from the hotel to the airport. First of all, good price, exellent meet up at the airport, nice cars and first class drivers. I will for sure use them again. Thank you.

          Airport Transfers
          We used Pattaya Central for 3 transfers whilst in Thailand, the 1st was from Suvarnabhumi Airport to Dusit Thani Pattaya, we were supplied with very good detailed instructions where to meet the driver at the airport, he was waiting for us when we arrived holding a board with our name on it, the drive was very good in an air conditioned car. The 2nd transfer was from Dusit Thani Pattaya to Hilton Garden Inn Silom, again a very good transfer and finally the 3rd Hilton Garden Inn Silom back to Suvarnabhumi. Each transfer was excellent, Pattaya Central are a reliable company and we wouldn't hesitate to use them again when we are in Thailand.

          Private day tour from cruise ship to see the best that Pattaya has to offer !.
          Day tour from cruise port. Wonderful full day tour around Pattaya. A varied tour of Pattaya main sights to avoid the normal bars and beaches. Private tour with a driver with various stops along the way: Culture and elephant show and gardens, Buddha stop off and viewpoint and our highlight of the day: temple of the truth in time for the English language tour.

          Efficient service. My name was clearly displayed @ prearranged meeting point. I was met by a friendly driver. The vehicle was spotlessly clean & mechanically sound. Will definitely use this service again.

          Transfer from Airport to Pattaya
          Lex and her staff provide a fantastic service. Her partner Paul is also a really nice guy. I booked a transfer from the Airport to Pattaya. My driver was great and the car was comfortable and spotless. The car arrived on time, no delays. The driver (Pee Vee) was a Bangkok highway expert. He drove super smooth and focused through traffic. I felt very safe the whole time and arrived at Pattaya cool, calm and happy. I would highly recommend Pattaya Central for all your tour and transfer needs.

        The sanctuary is a must-see wooden carving masterpiece. So many wonderful details that you do not know where to look first. I was excited! (And, you can read a lot of true ideas how to improve your life to make you and people around you better and happy.) I have chosen the first term of transfer in the morning which was perfect to avoid the huge tourist crowds comig later. The English-speaking driver picked me up at the hotel at exact time (no collection of other guests from other hotels, comfort clean car), gave me the ticket and let me on my own in the sanctuary areal for as long as I wished. At the entrance to the sanctuary tour (steep steps downhil!), there is an information plate about the times of guided tours in different languages, you have to wait for your language. I had to wait for English some 30 minutes. In that time you can visit a mini-ZOO, souvenir shop or cafeteria. In the sanctuary, helmets are obligatory. After the tour you can stay and take photos as long as you want, drink a coconut or order some meel. I used a free shuttle to get back to the parking place where the driver was waiting and put me back to the hotel. The whole trip took from 8:00 to 11:30. Well spent morning. Not cheep, but well invested money.

        a very beautiful temple that is full of multiple intricate details. the craftsmanship. You could easily spend half a day at the temple taking in the details. Many other things to do on the site but the temple is the must visit.

        Disgusting place because feet from the exit right in front of you as you leave the sanctuary is a vision of Hell. In front of you was a small area with 7/8 beautiful elephants who were being abused
        Let me please explain
        24 hours later I am still upset with the obscenity that I witnessed. I am traumatised. All their talk of love, understanding, karma, good and evil etc in the sanctuary and then feet from the exit right in front of you as you are leaving they allow this obscenity. This is 2024 not 1974.. No one harms the animals now. They are innocent creatures. You traumatised me.. I reported to the staff what I saw and they agreed with me. One staff member told me - I cannot look out ( the windows) and see the elephants. It upsets me. Another staff member told me - they use the bill hooks with pain to control them
        No way would I ‘ ride ‘ on the back of one of these creatures who has been beaten., tied up and abused into submission until their spirits are broken. I noticed 3 elephants doing the rounds with thick stupid tourists ‘ riding’ on them. Then I noticed the bill hooks in the hands of the guys controlling them. You’re right I lost it. In case you do not know these bill hooks cause extreme pain to the elephants when they are beaten with them. The elephants scream with the extreme pain. It’s how these evil people control them. I shouted at them with what they were doing and they laughed at me. Yes they did but not 10 minutes later when I marched into the elephant’ paddock ‘ . Where the elephants were congregated and took out my camera phone. I began to film them asking where the bull hooks were. Hey presto all the bill hooks had disappeared. Some keepers had disappeared completely. The few sat there were not laughing at me now surprise surprise. They knew I spoke the truth. They knew I was mad with anger. Silence is complicity. I cannot remain silent.
        A terrible terrible experience. A visit to Hell. Sure go if you want to be transferred like me. Your choice . For 1 million dollars I would not enter that place agai

        Beautiful building on the ocean. Fascinating. Cons-pricey at about $14 a person, with crowds I saw they are making bank, stairs - flight to stairs to go down and back up, disabled access?, crowds - probably crowded all the time, was today. guides- good luck if you are with your language guide, difficult to hear guide speaking. At the North end of Pattaya.

        It's not a temple, but a huge building full of sculptures, everything is made of wood and has an impressive atmosphere. A must in Pattaya.

        I travel to Thailand every year and this is without a doubt the most special, incredible and spectacular temple I have ever visited!!! It is a work of art, carved in wood. It is an incredible experience to see all the details it has, you could spend the entire day discovering details in every place you look. The entrance fee today is 500 Bath (about €12 or €13) but it is worth every euro. The only thing I didn't like was the "attractions" that they have set up around, there are horseback riding, elephant riding...... PLEASE DO NOT CONTRIBUTE TO ANIMAL MISTREATMENT.
