One of the amazing sights in Pattaya is this gigantic wooden palace which dominates the landscape alongside the sea. The highest point reaches 105 meters high. Practically every inch, both inside and outside is covered with exquisite wooden carvings. It has taken them years to build and it is not finished yet. However, you can join exclusive tours of the wooden palace. When we last went about five years ago, we had to wear a hat for protection. I am not sure if you still have to do that.
