Jomtien Beach Attractions

What to See in Jomtien Beach

Jomtien is home to some of the top attractions in the Pattaya area, including some of the largest and most spectacular cultural and religious sites in the whole country. Many of the attractions have a more cultural inclination than those available in Pattaya, including the Viharn Sien, Buddha Mountain and Wat Yansangwararam. With water parks, viewpoints, cabaret shows, unusual shopping centres and award-winning gardens, there is still plenty to see and do if you want something different.

Listed below, you will find every attraction there is to see in Jomtien in alphabetical order, from the stunning to the strange, the eminent to the obscure and everything in between. There is a lot on offer, so it is worth taking the time to browse through before you travel so that you can pick what you definitely don’t want to miss. Make sure you take a day to enjoy Jomtien’s biggest attraction, though – its long, sandy beach lapped by the calm, warm waters of the Gulf of Thailand.

Take your place in the 2,000-seat auditorium, found south of Pattaya on Sukhumvit Road, for lavish sets, excellent choreography, aerial acrobatics, dancing and great storytelling.

Tel: +66 (0)3 825 6000

Cabaret Shows

Although the older and more famous cabaret shows are found around Pattaya Beach, the options available in Jomtien are no less impressive. The Thai Alagkarn Show on Sukhumvit Road and the Colosseum Show on Thepprasit Road both offer an extravaganza of ostentatious outfits, creative choreography and spectacular song and dance routines. As with the other cabaret shows in Pattaya, the truly remarkable aspect of the show is that every one of the glamorous and extremely talented performers is, despite appearances, a man – or, at least, was at some point.

Khao Chi Chan (“Buddha Mountain”)

Visible glittering in the sunlight from a distance, the image of Buddha carved into the side of a limestone hill and inlaid with gold has an appropriate name which translates as “the Buddha with brightness and sublimity”. Etched out of the side of what was once a source for construction materials with a laser, it is 130 metres in height and 70 metres at its widest point, making it is the largest carved stone Buddha in the world. The area it resides in – commonly known as Silverlake – is one of great natural beauty and is also home to a number of other attractions such as the Silverlake Vineyard.

Opening Hours: 08:00 – 17:00
Location: 6km from Kilometre 160, off Sukhumvit Road, Na Jomtien

Khao Pattaya View Point

Khao Pattaya View Point on Phratamnak Hill is the best viewpoint in the region and the place to visit day or night to get that classic shot of Pattaya’s sweeping, crescent bay. Be warned though, this is anything but an insider’s tip so expect to share your view with an almost ceaseless conveyor-belt of package tours and the local traders who follow them touting cheap souvenirs and expensive refreshments. This might sound off-putting but the reality is tours will usually stop for 10 to 15 minutes and once they have been called back to the bus, the view point becomes quiet and peaceful – perfect for enjoying the stunning scenery.

Opening Hours: 07:30 - 21:00
Location: Soi Rajchawaroon, Phratamnak Hill

Lakeland Cable Water Ski

Cable skiing is, without doubt, the safest watersport in Pattaya, as well as amongst the most enjoyable. The cable over the lake follows a square pattern at the speed a boat would need to travel to allow you to waterski. A rope is hooked onto the cable at one end while you hang on tight to the other end. The sudden acceleration catches a lot of people by surprise and even experienced skiers sometimes end up in the lake after just a few metres, but the ability to swim to the side, climb out and immediately try again makes learning quicker and easier, as does helpful advice and tuition from the staff and other patrons.

Opening Hours: 10:00 – 18:00
Location: 297/6 Sukhumvit Road, Jomtien
Tel: +66 (0)3 823 2690

The Million Years Stone Park & Crocodile Farm

One of Pattaya's favourite day-time attractions, the park covers a large area with rock gardens on beautifully landscaped grounds. Interesting sights include fossilised plants of more than a million years old, 200-year old Thai-style bonsai trees, crocodile pools and a collection of rare animals such as albino bears. Crocodile round-ups, magic shows and animal performances are also major attractions. Shows run six times a day from 11:00 – 17:00. 

Opening Hours: 08:00 – 18:00

Turning a lot of heads along Sukhumvit Road, Mimosa is a combination of shopping mall, cabaret show and romantic hang-out spot, all set in a European-style town. The so-called “City of Love” is based on the French city of Colmar, with its Renaissance-era buildings recreated as more than 300 shops and restaurants selling souvenirs, clothing, jewellery and traditional Thai handicrafts. Its musical fountain is the centrepiece for a 45-minute cabaret performed three times per day while street performers can be seen at any time. There is also a small selection of rides and attractions in the Funland Amusement Park zone, making this a great, family-friendly place to visit.

Nong Nooch Tropical Garden & Cultural Village

Nong Nooch Garden is set in a 2.4 sq km beautifully landscaped park and can easily make an all-day trip. The entire area is more like a theme park, with daily cultural shows, restaurants and accommodation as well as a vast area showcasing individually themed gardens. A leisurely stroll through the botanical park is like taking a journey around the world, through its many famous gardens, whether 17th-century French garden, Stonehenge, or European Renaissance garden. Equally fascinating are species-specific gardens, such as cactus and succulent plants, orchid nurseries, tropical palm gardens, bonsai and topiary garden. Read More...

Pattaya Elephant Village

Started as a home for former working elephants, the Elephant Village now gives shows and demonstrations including showing training techniques, bathing, traditional round-up methods and even the elephant's former role as a weapon of war. There is only one 90-minute daily show since this is still a retirement village for elephants, but 1-hour trekking tours are also available and are an excellent way to explore the surrounding villages and countryside. The tours follow a pre-set schedule, so it is a good idea to call ahead to see when the next tour is going to be. Read More...

Visible from any point along Pattaya Beach, Pattaya Park is an ideal attraction for the entire family. Its beachfront location occupies an expansive area on the jutting headland that connects South and Jomtien beaches. From the tower, you get one of the most amazing 360-degree bird’s eye views of the entire area.

Pattaya Shooting Park

There’s much more to Pattaya Shooting Park than just firing guns at paper targets. It is, in fact, the city’s premier adventure centre. Available activities include zip-lining, horse riding, kayaking, archery, fishing and rock climbing. The shooting range has a selection of handguns, shotguns and rifles to choose from and there is also a clay pigeon shooting range.

Viharn Sien

This majestic three-storey Chinese temple is both a place of worship and museum. The temple’s official name is Anek Kuson Sala, bestowed upon by His Majesty King Bhumibhol Adulyadej (Rama IX). But it’s called Vihara Sien because of the collection of Chinese saints housed inside the temple (‘sien’ means saints).

Vihara Sien is a cultural treat. It houses three floors of exhibits, showcasing religious artifacts from Mahayana and Theravada Buddhist sects. Even if you are not a Buddhist, the place is worth checking out for its cultural value. Read More...

Wat Phra Yai Pattaya

On the very top of Phratamnak Hill, between Pattaya and Jomtien Beach, you can’t fail to notice an enormous 18-metre-tall Buddha popping up through the trees. This "Big Buddha" – the largest in the region – is the highlight of Wat Phra Yai, a temple built in the 1940s when Pattaya was nothing more than a fishing village. The Big Buddha is extremely popular with tour groups who love to see the intricate design of the statue and the temple complex, but it is also revered by local people who come to pray at the temple. Despite the crowds, the wreaths of flowers and burning incense create a reflective mood in which to explore the many smaller Buddha statues, partial views of Jomtien Beach, and the pavilion hall which has a beautifully painted mosaic on the walls.

Wat Yansangwararam

Located in the grounds of Wat Yansangwararam, Viharnra Sien was built by local Thai-Chinese to honour His Majesty the King. The main structure features beautiful Chinese architecture and serves as both a museum and a Chinese temple. It houses many interesting items most relating to Chinese religious beliefs such as a jade statue of Guan Yin (Goddess of Mercy), granite lion statues, brass sculptures of Chinese gods, replicas of the famous terracotta warriors and images of Chinese monks in kung fu action. Viharnra Sien is about a kilometre away from the main buildings of Wat Yansangwararam on its spacious grounds.
