The Big Buddha itself appeared as a shining, floating vision. It is an impressive structure and one that glints seductively in the sun.

Magnificent temple with an 18 metre tall Buddha. This is a must-see place if you are in Pattaya. You can also get a good view of some parts of the city from here.

If you want to have a visit to peaceful place, visit Big buddha. The location is really good giving you scenic view of Pattaya.

Nice long walk from beach area or can take a cheap cab ride. Majestic buddha sitting above 70 plus steps, really nice views from atop. Offers free coverings too if need.

Remember - this is a TEMPLE - a Holy place. Dress respectfully as you would in your native Church. Do not turn your back on Buddha.
