During one of our 3 days staying in Pattaya, we decided to visit the small hill called Phra Tamnak, which has a temple on the top, but also the best point of seeing Pattaya from above. And we decided to do it in a original way - by walking our way up. The trip in the small forest at the... More

Through and beyond Walking Street, follow the road keeping the park on your left, turn right and walk up the steep pathway which in all probability will be packed with Chinese. A few shops, a Wat, a statue of the founder of the Thai navy and a terrific view of Pattaya Bay and surrounding area.

This is a photographer's delight for capturing a picturesque view of the bay with boats and the captivating city shore line. Very peaceful and restful despite the high volume of visitors in the prayer area. Ramps help handicap reach the vantage viewing areas.8

It's very nice view from the top of phra Tamnak. I was there in the dark, but still good view on bay and night lights of Pattaya!

The place to take your Pattaya pictures. Nice view and sunset. Very close to Big Budah. Just consider the outside temperature before comming. It can get hot and not to many shades

The Khao Phra Bat viewpoint is located down the hill from the Big Buddha, cross the intersection then up the hill on the opposite side of the street. This location gives a great skyline view of the entire Pattaya coastline and region. A long-stretching, though narrow, stretch of Pattaya beach, the pier, high-rises, and what seems to be hundreds of... More

On the top of the mountain with big Buddha and stunning views over looking down pattaya. Little hard to find a parking during new year weekend.

This is the place where you take the classic panoramique picture of Pattaya. With bleu skies this is indeed a very nice view. I used to live around the so I have been there probably hundreds of times and each time I am still impressed by the view. The big Buddha is a hundred meters farther away and on the... More

Highest point within city limits with unobstructed city view with a cute coffee shop and lookout platform. One of the best outdoor attractions around Pattaya, worth visiting especially to catch pretty sunset (weather permitting).
