Big Buddha, Pattaya

4.2
#3 of 13 in Sightseeing in Pattaya
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Head up the dragon-lined staircase to the seat of Big Buddha, a bright gold figure standing 18 m (59 ft) tall. Offerings, incense, decorations, and bells surround the striking statue. Learn about Buddhism at the temple through the historical information provided, then look around the hilltop site to see Buddhas in other poses. The staircase up to the plateau is attractive in itself for its decorative flourishes, and does not ascend too steeply for most visitors. Make Big Buddha a part of your Pattaya vacation plans using our Pattaya travel itinerary planner.

  • A big statue of the Buddha This place is on top a hill. One can reach it by taxis or tour buses if you book one. The place is a temple so make sure you remove your shoes and enter the temple proper. The view from the top is awesome. One can see the Pattaya Park Tower and the Jomtien Beach from here.
  • A place for believers who wants to pray. Good place for tourist that wants to take picture or just visit this place. Standard scenery. Be sure to respect those who are praying.
