Would have liked guides to show me around but worth a look. had trouble going in the wrong area of this structure and don't know why I was banned from certain parts of this structure. Not overly impressed.

The place was nice and quiet with just a few tourists and locals offering respects. The views are nice. You can access it by foot or by car. No entry fee

It’s so peaceful and nice after an uphill walk (if you decide to walk there) It has a dress code: long shorts, shirts with sleeves! If you’re not dressed modestly they provide the necessities for free at the gate.

Really good and peaceful place. It is one of the most attractive places in Pattaya. You can walk to this place is on the hill. Book bike taxi and give 40 baht, they will drop you at the main get of Big Budha.

About half hour walk or 10 minutes by motor bike taxi. Taxis are not metres in Pattaya. So you could try the 10 baht bus going up Soi Buakao or walk to baech road and get a baht bus there. Take a baht bus from South Pattaya... More

Do either. I walk but if you are tired use bike. Plenty of parking spaces ..no problem. Both the areas you mention are worth a visit so go to both.
