I estimate the statue is about 20 meters tall.

Thais come here to pay homage to Buddha.

There is no entrance fee at Big Buddha and also not at the monument of 'Admiral Krom Luang Jumborn Khet Udomsakdi' which is very close by (among the many things to do in Pattaya.

At the foot of the platform you'll have the smell of incense great you.  You'll find a restaurant and a place to buy water.  When you're ready you can go up the stairs (that 2 dragons guard)

What Else You'll Find There

You'll also find some out-of-the-ordinary Buddhas that make for a great story.

You'll be surprised to find Buddhas that don't fit the "good-looking" mold.  That's one thing you can enjoy in this place.  These are just 2 of the 5 different ones you'll find. 

On the edge of the platform you'll also find the most beautiful view of Pattaya and Jomtien.  You can check out a quick video of it below.

There is also a shelter where you can put a baht coin and make a prayer of your own (which was what most of the people there were doing.)

If you enjoy Thailand culture and seeing the different Buddha landscapes then feel free to explore.  

In fact when you go back down there is another path to take.  You can visit a beautiful garden to the right.  What's interesting is the Chinese influence in that garden (if you've ever been to a Chinese Buddhist temple.) 

In any case - enjoy!
