Big Buddha, Pattaya Reviews

  • Cool looking statues, the big one is pretty impressive. It's free and there's a great view of South Pattaya behind the big Buddha. And it's free to visit! Beware of a steep climb if you try to walk here. Take a baht bus or motorbike taxi.

  • Good place to visit in Pattaya !!! This place is one of the famous places in pattaya. Its located on the top of a hill. The roads are very well maintained. Ample parking space available. Have to climb a few stairs to reach the place. Footwear has to be removed. The view point behind the statue is wonderful. Must Visit place in Pattaya.

  • Escape the seedy Pattaya town and have a breath of fresh air here. Wonderful spot.

  • Must see in Pattaya. The temple complex is calm and soothing mainly because of less number of tourists.The places gives a good all round view of Pattaya.

  • This is the famous big Buddha statue and well worth a visit, as well as the statues which are in good condition there are good views of Pattaya, its quite busy and can attract coaches, you can get a coffee and snack as well for about 30THB. Parking is easy and free.
