It’s a 45-minute journey to North Pattaya, where you will visit the Wooden Pavilion—the Sanctuary of Truth. This mystical building was constructed according to ancient Thai specifications, and is the largest wood-carved structure in Thailand. Designed as a pagoda-shaped pavilion, the building is more than 340 feet tall and is a fusion of religion, culture and art. Originally crafted entirely from Thailand’s native teak, parts of the pavilion have been replaced by more durable redwood to withstand the ravages of the salt air. Every square inch of the building is covered with intricate wooden sculptures depicting the Ancient Version of Earth, Ancient Knowledge and eastern philosophy. Once inside, you will have an opportunity to view the cavernous inner chapel, which reveals Chinese, Hindu, and Buddhist traditions. After exploring the pavilion and surrounding ground, you will re-board your motor coach for the return drive to the ship along beautiful Pattaya Beach Road.
Please note: Wear light, breathable clothing and comfortable walking shoes.
