Big Buddha, Pattaya Reviews - Write a Review
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.
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.
Absolutely stunning place. Very calming and tranquil.
Too heavily monetised to get five stars from me.. but worth a visit just for the beautiful views from the top.
