They even have the terrcota warriors... More

I have worked in the Pattaya area for two years and did not know it was here until a friend mentioned he had been. An old temple converted into a museum full mainly of Chinese artefacts to celebrate Thai-Chinese culture. I found it an interesting exhibition which even included original Terracotta warriors and two horse drawn chariots from Xian. A... More

This museum is a hidden gem near Pattaya. Besides all of the artwork and metal cast figures, it is the only place outside of China that you can see real terra-cotta soldiers. The value of all the artwork in this museum would be in the hundreds of millions of dollars! It is a must see!

Entrance fee was only 50 THB which worth every Satang. Operating hour : 08.00- 18.00 hrs. (Google said close time is 6.30 p.m. which is... More

You will need your own transport or hire a baht bus to get here. If so do Buddah Mountain at the same time. Lovely artefacts to see its a shame there are not more explanations in English so you could fully understand what's on offer.

This temple is just near Buddha mountain this temple has so much inside and out to see. There are lots of models to see, the ancient warriors. All the martial arts moves are on display outside. If you go outside be careful when it's hot because the floor can be extremely hot and painful on the soles of your feet.... More
