This we visited as it was close to the hotel.The image on the mountain was very impressive and so was the vineyard nearby.well worth popping along to see.

This sounds a little bit like a tourist trap however it is actually very impressive and one of the most unique Buddha displays in Thailand. It is only about a 20 minute drive south from Pattaya. Very well marked and good parking. When we were there it was filled with bus loads of Chinese tourists a, which wasn't the greatest... More

The special about this Buddha mountain was a huge crafted Buddha on a Rock Mountain. Avoid tour during hot season/summer season, because it is really hot weather besides the place not much cover was like open garden. The place beautiful like big garden. In conclusion, a worth for short visit. Hop and go trip..take some photo and go..

Really is a shame there is nothing else once there. The mountain is beautiful but there is loads of room for stalls etc to keep people entertained because the mountain is a ten minute visit for a few pictures. Nothing else to do one tou have photos. Seems a pitty

This place was worth the 20Km drive out of Jomtien. Yes, it's crawling with Chinese tourists, but the garden area is so huge, you hardly notice. Also, being package tourists, they tend to go to the center area, take some selfies, and go back to the shops area. So if you actually walk around a bit, you have the place... More

Since its so close with Silver lake vineyard nearby, so you can visit only to take some pics. Cause its free, but you can make donation here. Beware it's quite hot in the afternoon. Don't forget bring umbrella/hat

This area is a winemaking region, and reminds me very much of North California, Napa and the Sacramento foothills. It is very much in the style of Italian villa's. This is a very nice day out and there are good quality restaurants nearby. It is very picturesque. Oh and there is a brand new water park nearby too. If you... More
