“Interesting temple by the sea”
5 of 5 stars
Excellent photo opportunities here, the temple is a very interesting construction in a beautiful part of Pattaya.
A must see. Beware the ticket sellers though, they will try and sting you for 500 baht at first. This is to go into the temple.
For 50 baht you get access to the area, and you can just walk down to the restaurant area and take photos.
You get a horse and cart ride included, you can also feed the goats and other animals in the enclosure. Which has nothing to do with the attraction, just locals making some extra money, which is good to support.
“A must see”
5 of 5 stars
This is one place I don’t know just how to describe. The wood carvings you just have to see for yourself, and see if you can come up the words to say what you think.
You could spend all day there, and still not find the words to say what your thoughts are. Again this a must day out.
*Easy access for wheelchair users and people with limited mobility, made possible via use of a wooden lift
