“Can not miss”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

up on south hill sits a huge golden Buddha. Worth the trip up. also men selling small birds in wood cages. The idea is to set them free while praying to Buddha to set your soul free. All part of the wow of Thailand.

“Worth a Visit”
Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

We caught a taxi to the Big Buddah. Overall it's a nice trip and worth a visit. The view is beautiful and the monks and staff are very nice and friendly. You can get blessed by a monk for a donation which I thought was very special. Although entry is free a donation is expected. Also women need to cover their knees and shoulders out of respect.

“what a view”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

perched on top af a hill overlooking pattaya and jomtiem is this enormous buddha statue surrounded by other smaller but equally beautiful statues. Not only well worth a visit for the view but also for the chance of an audience with one of the resident monks who welcome visitors.

“Nice”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

The main attraction about this place is it's location. It is a picturesque valley far from the maddening crowds and traffic of Pattaya. The nearby winery is also worth a visit and is apparently owned by the Prince's girlfriend.
