Must-see in and around PattayaIf you planned to visit all of Thailand - or even important landmarks in the world - but simply cannot do it, make up for it with a quick tour of Mini Siam. Off Sukhumvit Road across from Bangkok Pattaya Hospital, Mini Siam is a re-creation in miniature of over a hundred major tourist attractions around Thailand - and choice attractions of the world. Built to scale of 1:25, the miniatures include the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, the Grand Palace and Muang Boran (Ancient City in Samutprakan). Curiously, at the entrance you are greeted by scale miniatures of the Eiffel Tower, Statue of Liberty, Abu Simbel, and other western edifices.
Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum at the Royal Garden Plaza is an exciting place to see unusual things in this world. It does present some interesting and some humorous exhibits from around the world.
Only 20 minutes south of the city is a 500 acre garden park with sculptured flower gardens, Thai style houses, huge cactus garden, mini-zoo, garden of Versailles and a picturesque lake. Nong Nooch Botanical Garden is only 20 minutes south of the city, complementing the park's beauty are cultural and elephant shows, featuring traditional dancers, Thai boxing, religious ceremonies, martial arts, and elephants playing football, dancing, and interacting with visitors.
The Million Years Stone Park and Crocodile Farm features petrified trees over 100 million years old, as well as living, award-winning bonsai trees, Thai-style trained trees over 200 years old, and oddly-shaped rocks weighing up to 75 tons each. Located 15 minutes from Pattaya, the 70-acre park also claims Thailand's largest collection of saltwater crocodiles, numbering in the thousands, plus a variety of wild animals in its exotic zoo.
To see Pattaya at its best, a visit to Phratamnak Hill is in order. From this vantage point just south of Walking Street, you are afforded the most scenic view of Pattaya City, Laem Chabang, the expansive bay and all nearby islands. While on high, stop in at Wat Khao Prayai, the small temple complex on the hill. The temple has excellent vistas and a 10-metre gold Buddha statue serenely surveying the western sea.
If you are interested in pachyderms, Elephant Village is the perfect place to get up close and personal. A retirement sanctuary for 30 former working elephants, it features three 90-minute shows a day depicting a typical day in the life of an elephant. You can also go for a ride or a trek in the jungle. Elephant Village is off Sukhumvit Highway, about 20 minutes from Central Pattaya.
Khao Chee Chan, south of Pattaya and again off of Sukhumvit Highway, features an impressive image of the Buddha covering an entire mountainside. The image reportedly was made by laser. Situated in a large and pleasant park, a leisurely visit would be satisfying.
The Bottle Art Museum is the only museum of its kind in the world. Featuring a vast collection of miniatures in bottles-buildings, boats and various other objects — which have been skillfully built in bottles. The friendly staff will even help you create your own miniature in a bottle. The air-conditioned museum is located on the east side of
Sukhumvit Highway, across from the Pattaya Today office.
