Big Buddha is a very impressive location that is quite tranquil with some great views of greater Pattaya. There is the Big Buddha along with a number of smaller statues throughout the site along with a peaceful temple. You can provide offerings to the monks and receive blessings in return. You can spend around 30 to 60 minutes with ease.... More

Cool thing to see. It's really just a big Buddha with smaller statues around. Plan on spending 15 mins there, max.

A very picturesque attraction atop a hill overlooking pattaya! View of the entire city! Relaxed place ideal for meditation and escaping the hustle of the city! Covering of body upto ankle is must, sarongs are distributed free to tourists.

Maybe after so much of the walking street craziness it makes you feel like a better person coming here, especially on an early morning.

If you're visiting Pattaya, the Buddha is worth a visit. Magnificent stairway up, various additional statues, gardens and temples to see. Good views. Possible to get a taxi up to down, we walked - which was a mistake in the heat!
