BIG BUDDAH / BUDDAH HILL
Big Buddah is an incredibly large golden painted Buddah, on Buddah Hill.
It's quite a sight to see in person and it's free. Which is always a bonus!
The best way to get up there is by motorbike. (scooter if you will)
You'll head toward Jomtien then you'll need to find yourself on Pattaya Hill Road. (look up, you'll see the Buddah, head in that direction, (I mean it really is that easy)
you'll be taking the road going closer to the Ocean). You see the signs, you'll see the Buddah, drive up, get a picture. After the viewing of the Big Buddah, you're not done yet. Head back to Pattaya road, take the road nearly directly across from where you just were and head back up another hill.
You'll find yourself at another place viewing spot, where all the photographers get their pictures of Pattaya. (unless they rent a plane) All is free, and it's actually a fun little get a way from the drinking and shopping mayhem in Pattaya.
