But if you have the chance, make sure that to check out places that should definitely appear in your Pattaya bucket list.
Pattaya Bucket List 1: Big Buddha Temple (Wat Phra Yai)
Located on top of Pratumnak Hill, at approximately 100 meters above sea-level, stood an 18 meters, 40 feet tall, golden platted Big Buddha statue that gazed upon Pattaya and Jomtien Beach. It is the landmark of Wat Phra Yai, a temple that was built in the 1940s, and the iconic figure of Pattaya.
This place has become more and more popular with tons of visitors flocked in to marvel at the intricate design of the temples and the fairy-tale-like stairways that were skirted with Naga. (Mystical dragons). If you tell people that you have been to Pattaya, this will be the number 1 place that rings their bells.
Pattaya Bucket List 2: Sanctuary of Truth
Call me spiritual or gothic, or whatever terms that you would like to use. But being true to yourself is a self-reflect method that everybody should give it a try, especially in the presence of the Sanctuary of Truth.
The sanctuary itself is a carefully crafted monument that portrays the excellence in Thai craftsmanship. You can notice it with the detailed carvings of people, animals, creatures, deities and mythological beast both inside and outside the building.
Even without talking about religious or faith, just being in the presence of the atmosphere is merely astonishing. Even if regular dances and performances are happening, there seems to be a sense of serenity and peace succumb in the area. A place that should be included in your bucket list.
Pattaya Bucket List 3: Floating Market
How can you not be here, if you are a fan that appreciates traditional art and culture? The Pattaya Floating Market is a sight to behold, as they are rich in traditional Thai culture, and sold antiques and stuff that you most probably can only get it here.
