I don't consider this statue to be one of the most refined depictions of Lord Buddha, nor are the surroundings of this spot as gorgeous as 'Sanctuary of Truth'(definitely the number one place for sightseeing in Pattaya). However it's a nice spot for an elevated...More

Except for temple, the view is amazing. You can worship the Buddha. Little bit hard to find because most of them confuse this with pattaya Sight Seen.

This Buddha was one of many I visited during my month in Thailand, and though I am sure it is impressive to those tourists who do the simply tourist places, to me I found it lacking. The week before in Chon Buri we had visited...More

Near our hotel at Intercontinental, we went close to sunset and caught the setting rays. Dress appropriately (no bearing of shoulders, mid riff and legs for ladies) or cover up with the sarongs provided. A serene moment with kids

This statue is so big, that it takes a while to even capture it in your eyes. It's a wonderful experience. It is worth spending some time and also feel the environment.

Hi. I went with a private driver. But there were buses there. If you go with a private driver you can leave once you’ve finished your visit there. We were there around 9.30 am. It wasn’t quite busy. But still easy to walk... More

About half hour walk or 10 minutes by motor bike taxi. Taxis are not metres in Pattaya. So you could try the 10 baht bus going up Soi Buakao or walk to baech road and get a baht bus there. Take a baht bus from South Pattaya... More
