  • Big Buddha temple. A peaceful place . Good ambience . Clam and clean. So many Buddha statues are there. When ever we go there we feel some peace. A must visit place in Pattaya city
  • Loved the dragons πŸ‰. This place is awesome in pattaya. Almost every city has a big Buddha in Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­. You can see the beach from the very top. Many travelers visit this place. It’s a little walk up the hill, but always get a motorcycle 🏍. I was able to take good photos and enjoy the day.
