The Bear Travel  Fun Fact!

Your visit to Pattaya can not be complete without seeing Buddha Mountain. You can enjoy the surroundings and even get closer to the mountain, but some safety restrictions exist.

 

The Buddha Mountain in Pattaya

Many people come to Buddha Mountain Pattaya (aka Khao Chee Chan) to stare in awe at its beauty. You can’t actually go on the mountain, but you can get close enough to get a natural feel for the size of the image. Inside the grounds of Khao Chee Chan are many food vendors and a souvenir shop, so be sure to stop by and look.

Visiting Khao Chee Chan is ideal for those traveling around the region on a day tour, where you can take in Buddha Mountain, Silverlake Vineyard, and Bangsaray Beach simultaneously. This is the perfect Pattaya attraction for people of all ages and nationalities, allowing you to see something that is aesthetically beautiful and get closer to Thai culture.

Whether you are visiting the region for a long-term period or just a few days with friends, by yourself, or with your family and children, you definitely cannot afford to miss what is known as one of the must-see attractions in the Pattaya region.
