Did you know Thailand is home to one of the world’s largest Buddha images? Unveiled in 1996, this laser-carved image measures 109 metres tall by 70 metres wide, and almost entirely fills the sheer northern face of Khao Chi Chan, a solitary limestone hill located just south of—you guessed it—Pattaya. The image was designed on computer and then drawn onto the rock using a laser, after which gold was used to fill in the sculpture. Most commonly referred to as Buddha Mountain, this outdoor attraction is located a short drive south of Pattaya City. There are no fees for entering the grounds but remember that appropriate clothing is recommended.
