Attractions information

Sanctuary of Truth

The Sanctuary of Truth is one of the most notable attractions in Chonburi Province but is largely ignored by the traveling masses.

This remarkable structure, which is equivalent height of a twenty-story building, has been constructed in traditional Thai style entirely without the use of any nails.

Using Thai building methods from a bygone era, The Sanctuary of Truth is held together by wooden pegs and is ornately carved to show the relationships between human beings and the universe according to Eastern philosophies.

On arrival, you'll be introduced to a more leisurely method of transport, as you climb into the pony & trap for your journey down to The Sanctuary of Truth itself. The first glimpse from above is most memorable and whets the appetite for a closer view.

Inside the building it's remarkably cool and you'll be amazed by the myriad of intricate carvings which are visible everywhere. The timber used in the construction is suitably aged, having been taken from dismantled buildings throughout the country.

In addition to The Sanctuary of Truth itself, there is an excellent Thai Cultural Show which includes Thai dancing, Traditional fighting, Thai boxing and a Dolphin Show. Here you can even swim with the dolphins if you come prepared.

Pattaya is a popular resort on the coast of Eastern Thailand, 150 km south-east of Bangkok.

With over 5 million tourists yearly, Pattaya is able to offer an excellent range of eating choices & a wide variety of things to do and see, and its population is a colourful potpourri of mixed nationalities

Pattaya was a small fishing village until it was discovered by Bangkok residents in the 1960s. Soon thereafter, servicemen from all over Southeast Asia, including the United States Air Force base at U-Tapao in neighbouring Rayong province began using the area for "R&R" (rest and recreation), causing a huge boom in prostitution. When the Americans left following the end of the Vietnam War, the city fell into a crisis.

The rapid growth of tourism brought about many negative consequences, such as pollution and petty crime. In 1976, the Pattaya City Act was passed by the Thai legislature, making Pattaya a self-administrating municipality governed by a Council-manager government.

In recent years the city has pushed hard to clean up its image, however the core sex-industry has ensured that Pattaya retains its position as one of the world's most visited party destinations. Despite these efforts, Pattaya's sex industry is the city's raison d'etre.

The popular beach is known for its water sports (jet skis, para sailing, scuba diving) and for several annual sponsored events and festivals, attracting many visitors.

Jomtien Beach is divided from the main part of Pattaya by Pratumnak Hill, just south of the city.

Jomtien is essentially a residential area with beachside hotels, bungalow complexes, condominiums and restaurants.

A wide array of watersport activities can be found, including jet skis, parasailing and small sail boat (Hobie Cat) rental.

Dongtan Beach, just past the Avalon Beach Resort in Jomtien, is known as the gay beach, and is busy every day of the year.

Why is a private tour a better choice?

With a private tour, you have the freedom to choose what you want to do and when you want to do it. There is much more room for flexibility and changes to your itinerary at every step of the way because you don't have to consider the needs of other travelers. The flexibility and freedom to make the most of your time is the reason why so many people choose to take a private tour rather than a group tour.
