The best observation deck in Pattaya - view of the whole city

On the hill Pratamnak is itself popularPattaya Observation Deck, from where all those photos of the city are made, which are so numerous on the Internet and on advertising leaflets: with the arc of the bay stretching into the distance, boats in the azure water and dense high-rise buildings on the shore. This is the main viewpoint of Pattaya, which offers the best view both on a clear sunny day and in the evening, when the city below is colored with lots of lights reflected in the dark water of the bay.

The majestic statue of Admiral Crom installedon the highest point of Pattaya and is surrounded by military subjects. Thais have great respect for the admiral and worship him as a saint, bringing flowers and incenses to the statue, as in temples.

On the territory adjacent to the monumentIt is forbidden to smoke, bring food and drinks there. That is, the rules are almost like a temple, and this must be taken into account. The platform in front of the monument faces the sea and is designed as a ship's bow. There are benches and binoculars, and the view opens to the city center and the Pratamnak area, with the outlines of Koh Lan island in the distance.

On the observation deck is better to rise in goodclear weather, so the photos are more colorful. In the morning, the lighting is well suited for capturing beautiful views with azure water, and in the evenings you can watch sunsets from the viewpoint. Immediately after sunset, Pattaya lights up below with millions of lights and this is also a spectacle worthy of spectacle. I specially came 2 times, in the afternoon and after dark.

Getting there

Public transport to the observation deck is notwalks, so that you can get either by transport, your own or rented, by taxi or on foot. You can climb the hill either from the Pratamnak area or from the central part of Pattaya. One road from the center goes up going around the hill, from the Bali Hai pier, through the big letters PATTAYA and the lighthouse, and on the other hand you can go past the go-kart to the police station between the two hilltops. On one of them, farthest from the sea, there will be a temple with a statue of the Golden Buddha and a Chinese temple, and on the other - a viewing platform with a monument to Admiral Krom.

Across the street from the police station down the hillthere is a parking for large tourist buses and three lanes go quite steeply upwards. It is better to go to the right, it is with the sidewalk, rather short and quickly leads to a small parking at the temple and the lookout.

Park a bike is not a problem, there is alwaysa place. The car is better to park on the way, still on the rise. When you go, you will see standing in a row. Because further, at the very top there are very few parking spaces for cars. Well, or on the lowest parking leave, where the tour buses.
