“High up, nice area”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

The buddha itself is located on the top of a hill, surrounded with temples and other religious items and has a lot of different types of buddha statues surrounded. The view from the top of the mountain could have been better with some trimming of the trees, and the area should have been cleaned a bit more.

“Big Buddha”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

If you have free time and don't know what else to do in Pattaya you can go to see Big Buddha. Actually, almost everyone goes there on their city tour at the day time, but we didn't want to take it, so we went there by ourselves in the evening. It was dark, deserted and really calm, which is the best after the long crazy day in the center of Pattaya and the heat.

So we did enjoy visiting Big Buddha, the view of Pattaya from this place.

“Great views”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Good visit for a freebie, great views over Pattaya and a nice point to see sunset. Be aware of spontaneous firecrackers being set off!
