Description
Khao Chi Chan also known as the Buddha Mountain is on your way to Wat Yansangwararam. It is about 6 km from Sukumvit Rd in the Sattahip District close to Pattaya. The Buddha Mountain has a magnificent gigantic gold crafted carving image of Buddha on a side of the cliff face of Khao Chi Chan. The carving is 130 meters high with 70 meter in width and depicts of an attitude of the subdued Mara Buddha on the face, and the poster of the Buddha meditating. The Buddha image was carved out of the cliff face by using laser technology then it was inlaid with gold leaf, a process that took months to complete. The Buddha Mountain was constructed in 1996 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej ascension to the throne. Khao Chi Chan is a protected public landmark under the management of the Royal Thai Marine Corps and it is an absolute must see!

Nong Nooch Garden is located about 20 minutes outside of Pattaya and its sits on a 2.4 sq.km landscaped of beautiful lush gardens. Taking a leisurely stroll through the botanical park is like taking a journey around the world, through its many famous gardens like their 17th-century French garden, European Renaissance garden or Stonehenge. The vast garden also contains fascinating species-specific gardens that houses tropical palms, bonsais and topiaries, cactus and succulent plants, and orchid nurseries. It is unlikely that you will be able to explore all the attractions at Nong Nooch Garden by walking alone. You have the option to rent bicycles to take you at a leisurely pace. The first part of the park you should see is the Orchid Garden. It is known to house more than 670 native species of hybrids of Orchids, the biggest in the country, showcasing exotic-shaped leaves and blossoms, including the cactus and succulent plants. This park is both beautiful and educational.
Another big highlight of the park is the French Garden, with its symmetrical design and perfectly manicured shrubs modeled after the gardens of Versailles in France. The park offers an awesome skywalk that takes you around through-out the park. It is a 1.1 km elevated walkway that takes you through the Topiary garden, European garden, Tropical palm garden, Stonehenge garden, and Butterfly Hill. Nong Nooch Garden also features daily shows at the Thai Cultural Hall. Enjoy the spectacular sights and sounds of the classical Thai dance, Muay Thai or ancient drum performances, as well as the elephant shows.

Koh Samae San & Koh Kham: Both of these tropical islands are just a short distance away from Pattaya going into Sattahip. Both islands are in control of the Royal Thai Navy so you would need permission to from the Navy to go on the islands. It has preserved by the Royal Thai Navy and it is home for sea turtles to hatch eggs, abundant of wild rare plants and flowers, and the safe home for delicate corals. This island serves as a classroom in the middle of the sea where tourists and students can learn what it means to upkeep the unspoiled nature. Visitors will be able to relax and view the delicate coral reefs by boarding on a Navy ship with a glass bottom or go diving in the pristine crystal blue/green water. It is one of the cleanest beaches in the world. The tour program is for Koh Samae San but if the beach gets too crowded, it will be changed to Koh Kham. Only The Asia.com has the exclusivity to bring visitors to Koh Kham because we have a contract with the Royal Navy. 

Pattaya Floating Market, or in the Thai language means “Talad Nam Si Pak”. It means the “Floating Market of the Four Regions”.  It is the union of the country’s four regions which are the North, the South, the North-East, and the Central parts of Thailand. The market is divided into 4 sections. In each section of the Floating market, they showcase everything from those regions like food, fruits, silk products, and handcrafted items. The market contains over 114 shops, water vendors who sell authentic Thai food, desserts, and specialty items from all over the Thailand. If you want to have the full floating 

market experience, you can hire a private man-powered boat to get around and discover the culture of the riverside lifestyles of the olden days. 
A walk through the hundreds of wooden houses built in the different styles of the four regions can make you appreciate the rich heritage of Thailand. Besides food stalls and shops, the market also features other educational and entertaining attractions such as the Wood-Carving Museum which displays beautiful carved images and statues. Another attraction is the sunflower and agricultural demonstration fields where they teach you about agriculture. There is also a daily free show featuring the four different cultural performances. The Floating Market is a great place to visit when in Pattaya if you truly want to experience the culture of the four regions of Thailand.

浮潜是亮点

原来不会游泳的人也是可以享受到浮潜的乐趣,穿上救生衣就好。说实话七珍佛山不好玩,就一个山一个金佛,就没了。。没了。。了。。然后水上市场就都差不多,这里面基本都是国人,不是很推荐。
