Not too bad, I have seen a larger version in BKK - To be fair, The views from the hilltop is pretty good, especially if you have a good camera

Nice, laid back attraction free of charge (women need to cover their exposed body parts though). Few nice and picturesque statues on top along with big Buddha, very good views over Pattaya are a big plus.

Big Buddha on Pattaya Hill top is amazing place to visit especially in evening during the sunset time, excellent view of the sea and Pattaya city

We enjoyed our visit here - I think there were over 25 Buddhas in total - remember to cover shoulder and legs although they can lend you large scarves. The views from the Buddha are fab too.

The Big Buddha is BIG make no mistake and is easily viable through the area. It is a Holy place so ladies please ensure shoulders and knees are covered. The do offer scarfs at the entrance that will do the job. The actual Buddha is...More

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
