Nestled along a picturesque bay on the East Coast of the Gulf of Thailand, Pattaya is located roughly 170 kilometers southeast of Bangkok. From its early start as a fishing village in the late 1960s, Pattaya has emerged as a favorite Southeast Asian vacation center. Unlike other beach resorts, where natural surroundings are used as magnets to attract tourists, Pattaya provides plenty of opportunities for the entertainment seeker. From recreation, entertainment, sports, nightlife and sightseeing, Pattaya offers countless activities suitable for all types of visitors.
A European style mansion by the sea houses a statue of Kuan Yin and other sculptures that express the philosophy of living.
Buildings in the compound include The Buddha Dome, a restuarant and sourvenir shop.
