Viewpoint sights in Pattaya

A giant golden Buddha sits on top of this forested hill between Jomtien and South Pattaya (Pattaya Tai) as a reminder that religion has not forsaken this modern-day Gomorrah. The serene Buddha figure of Wat Phra Yai dates back to the days when Pattaya was a small fishing village and from this lofty position you can almost imagine a time before mini-skirts and Beer Chang happy hours. You can walk to the top of the hill from the southern end of Walking St, passing a small Chinese shrine en route.
