First stop at the visitor center where wegot the map of the temple ground, there was a ticket booth for boarding electric car services to 7-8 stops to visit important buildings/pagodas/statues/ patriarch residence /international pavillions by the manmade lake. It's quite hot, even in rainy season of May so be well prepared with sunlight protection and big bottle of water to stay hydrated. It's best to use own private car to drive along the direction to designated stops. Garden by the lake is a good picnic spot.

The Underwater World around ten kilometres along Sukhumvit Road from South Pattaya. It was our first visit to a controlled open aquarium hosting numerous marine ecosystems in their natural habitats. The 105 metres long undersea tunnel was divided into four major aquatic zones namely – Coral Reef Zone, Shark and Stingray Zone, Giant of Siam Zone and Jellyfish Zone. Though the entry tickets were quite costly (THB 500 per person), yet we enjoyed a lot indeed, especially the Shark (at 3.30pm) and Sting Ray (at 4pm) feeding sights were like a lifetime experience. It took us more than two hours to complete our walk through the underwater tunnel.

It's a weird place. Few big mansions with large halls inside, serving for religious purpose mainly. Few nice looking Gardens outside (although half of flora is artificial). Main visitors are Chinese on large tour groups. Entry for foreigner is 400, local only 180.

For the past many months Dongtan Beach has been subjected to a "beautification and development" project by local government authorities. and today I visited for the first time since its completion.
If this is "beautification and development" then I am a Monkey's Uncle.
The once wide, golden sandy beach has been cut in half lengthwise to accommodate a wide concrete access road, wide concrete paved footpaths, and hideous car and motor bike parks. Rumour has it that the access road is actually to a property that the local government authorities want to further develop.
The old palm trees were removed for this "development" and mature palms have been planted in their place, propped up with log supports until they get over the shock of transplant and start life in their new venue.
I notice other reviewers give this development the thumbs up. Well, not for me thank you.
I prefered to walk along the old narrow footpath to reach my favourite spot on the beach, and not have to compete with cars driving and parked along the access road, and the ugliest of ugly motor bike parks.
Incidentally, my One Star rating is for this stupid and money-wasting development, not for Dongtan Beach itself, which long-suffering as it is, is still worth visiting.

The world's largest private collection of Buddha images. This museum is a part of the Foundation for the Promotion and Preservation of Thai Art. The museum houses more than 2,600 artifacts regarding the artistic history of Thai Buddha images ranging from Rattanakosin period to ancient Myanmar (Pyu period). After vising the museum, you will come out with deeper understanding and new appreciation of Thai Buddha image art and histories. How one civilization connected to others through the dedication and faith expressed in Buddha images. Visiting this museum is equivalent to visiting many historical sites around the country as it is the only museum that collect and show to the public the continuous evolution of Thai Buddha images.
Found this place by accident, (GPS 12.910347, 100.944277), while taking a short cut to avoid the traffic. What a great find. Only opened 8 weeks ago, the place is so well set out, it makes the visit a true pleasure. Many galleys,depicting the different ages and styles of Buddhist art. Informative boards in Thai, English, Chinese and Russian at the entry to the rooms, explain the history of the period, and the differences between them. The exhibits themselves are amazing, and you soon pick out the varying styles. Great photo opportunity's So much to see, we plan a return visit very soon. Don't miss it.

The Wang Sam Sien and Wat Sam Saen complex is located immediately left before arriving at the parking lot for the Big Buddha. This huge complex is devoted to history and respect of the Chinese culture. There are several shrines, a huge temple of marble, stone and wood with a sitting Buddha and paintings.
There are statues of Lao Tzu (Chinese Taoist philosopher), Guan Yu (courageous and honest lord), Chinese emperors and a Tao teak brass bell, which is believed to be the largest brass bell cast in Thailand. There are vendors in the middle area and at the opposite area of the complex is the statue for Guanyin (Goddess of Mercy) in the Fountain. Continuing on you will observe many scenes along the wall and then the wall of 24 stories and a model Confucius classroom. A lower, peaceful garden area has another Fountain and a statue and tribute to Confucius and his believing’s.
This temple complex along with the Big Buddha can easily be viewed together. There were more somewhat aggressive dogs beyond the Wall of 24 stories.

When I come to Thailand I jog these tracks through and around the Gardens, the tracks circle the Buddha temple and they are brilliantly laid out with lines down the middle for running left and right and every so often there is excercise stations. As you make you way around you you get city glimpses and on the south side views all the way to Koh Larn. There does seem to be an increase in dogs and cats around the tracks but this does not deter the amount of joggers I would say one circuit is around half a mile so it's not a bad run. The Gardens on the west side are well maintained and manicured, the local council does a great job to keep it so clean as well.
