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!

Khao Kheow Open Zoo meaning “Green Mountain” is located about a 45 minute drive outside of Pattaya to Siriracha.
