The Pattaya Big Buddha
Possibly the most well known of the ‘tourist’ sights in Pattaya. This is an impressive sight indeed. Built in the 1940’s this stands tall and watches over the city below.
I suggest walking around this area as there is a lot more to see than just the initial Buddha statue.
Best time to come is in the morning. I was there around 10.30am and there were minimal people there. Any bike taxi will know where this is, and its around 80 baht from near walking street area. Then you can walk back down at your own pace. You could even use the baht bus to get near then walk the rest of the way.
Things to remember
Dress appropriately. You can rent shawls and covers near the entrance.
Take your shoes off when getting near Buddha
Don’t go crazy with pictures. 1 or 2 is ok.
Don’t turn your back on Buddha
