The Sanctuary of Truth

August 31, 2011

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.

    I was there last year in August, still required to wear plastic helmet. The have guides/security people happy to assist with taking photos and they didn’t require the white helmets to worn while photos was taken. Great place and the most expensive place we visited on that trip (this spring we went to the hill trips in Chiang Mai – even higher).
