Pattaya is not just a beach town. It has very scenic land marks like Mountain Buddha or Khao Chi Chan. Kudos to Thai King who is so generous to have this landmark Golden Buddha image carved in mountain and covered in gold and easily accessible without any fees. Close by is a Chinese temple and Silver Lake both of which are worth visiting. It gives so much peace to the mind and takes always all travel stress while in these places. It is about thirty minutes drive from Pattaya,
