It is quite breathtaking to be there and see the Big Buddha up close. It's still new and in construction all around. Be sure to read up on how to best respect the area before going.

Nothing special here. Just a tourist place in Pattaya. But there ia nothing great as such. You will see a huge Bhudha idle in golden colour. Get some pictures and come down, that's it!
