This is a lovely place on top of the hill which sits between Pattaya and Jomtien and where the 'Pattaya City' sign is. I visited here twice during my stay, one with a relative and the other time with my Thai girlfriend, and came here to pray. This is a religious place for Buddhism. Definitely worth a visit for an...

took a Motor Bike taxi ride to the top 60b, $ 1.71us, well worth it. The most magnificent view of Pattaya and should be in everyone's travel photo book. They do have beverages and food with a wonderful view fromthe open air restaurant.

During one of our 3 days staying in Pattaya, we decided to visit the small hill called Phra Tamnak, which has a temple on the top, but also the best point of seeing Pattaya from above. And we decided to do it in a original way - by walking our way up. The trip in the small forest at the... More

Through and beyond Walking Street, follow the road keeping the park on your left, turn right and walk up the steep pathway which in all probability will be packed with Chinese. A few shops, a Wat, a statue of the founder of the Thai navy and a terrific view of Pattaya Bay and surrounding area.

This is a photographer's delight for capturing a picturesque view of the bay with boats and the captivating city shore line. Very peaceful and restful despite the high volume of visitors in the prayer area. Ramps help handicap reach the vantage viewing areas.8

The place to take your Pattaya pictures. Nice view and sunset. Very close to Big Budah. Just consider the outside temperature before comming. It can get hot and not to many shades

The Khao Phra Bat viewpoint is located down the hill from the Big Buddha, cross the intersection then up the hill on the opposite side of the street. This location gives a great skyline view of the entire Pattaya coastline and region. A long-stretching, though narrow, stretch of Pattaya beach, the pier, high-rises, and what seems to be hundreds of... More
