A very beautiful place. Quite and peaceful. Eye catching view of Pattaya from top. Reaching their is also very simple. You can take a cab which would cost you around 150-200 THB or you can walk as well.
Wonderful place. Going to observe the sunset, contemplate the city and enjoy the silence and tranquility, is surprising. The sculptures are simply dazzling, you can not stop looking at them. If you are going to take pictures, be very respectful. Be quiet and do not disturb others.
