Full description
Get picked up from your hotel in Bangkok at around 7:30 AM and ride about 2 hours to Pattaya City. Visit the Sanctuary of Truth, a large wooden structure constructed in 1981 by the sea at Laem Ratchawet. It was conceived from the concept that human civilization owes its existence to the religious and philosophical truth. You’ll learn how the grand castle has been built by ancient wood-joining techniques you can’t see elsewhere in the world including tongue and groove techniques, butt joint, dovetails, sapped spurs, and more. It’ll be your once-in-a-lifetime experience to participate in the construction of the miraculous national and world heritage. Continue your journey to Pattaya viewpoint which is located on Khao Phra Tam Nak which is a small hill on the South of Pattaya Beach. The location is the best spot to see the panoramic view of Pattaya City and its bay from above. On the hilltop, it’s also the site of Naval Radio Station where the monument of Krom Luang Chumphon Khet Udomsak, the Father of Royal Thai Navy, is situated alongside a sacred Buddha image. Enjoy your free time at Pattaya Beach, the half-moon-shaped Pattaya Beach that is 4 kilometers long with a road running parallel to the beach. There is a variety of restaurants, hotels, bars, department stores, and souvenir stores as well as other places of entertainment. Depart from Pattaya at about 3:00 PM and arrive at your hotel in Bangkok at around 6:00 PM.

The Sanctuary of Truth is a unique experience and worth the visit. If you include this with Pattaya beach you may not have enough time for beach sports just a walk along the beach. The driver Sam was punctual, helpful and friendly. He helped us to allocate our time in a way that we could enjoy both attractions and also parked close to a spot where we could eat.

I really enjoyed this trip because of the city's attractions being close to the beach. I booked a private tour (probably because the group tour option was unavailable). So, the Sanctuary of Truth was amazing to see and I highly suggest that anyone visiting Bangkok, Thailand, visit Pattaya City. Also, the markets alongside the beach are worth visiting because of the multitude of attractive services open mid-day. The Big Buddha shrine at the top of the hill is also another interesting attraction for tourists to visit.

Breathtaking experience. Sanctuary of truth is definitely unique and a must see if you are traveling to Thailand. It was amazing seeing the 'workers' sculpting wood with so much passion and patience. Our guide's name was 'King kong'. He was punctual, nice, and very friendly. He gave us great tips and was an excellent guide/ personal driver. The car was really nice, clean and comfortable. Thank you King Kong for this lovely day around Pattaya and for taking us to sightseeing and for all your great tips. I highly recommend this trip.
