Big Buddha, Pattaya

(4/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
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.
