Viewpoints and attractions of Koh Larn

Buddha Footprint - AussichtspunktThe Buddha Footprint Lookout. The way up the 250 steps is especially in the summer, so from May to August very exhausting. As I climbed the 250 steps to the lookout point it was particularly hot in April 2016. It was in the shade around 40 degrees when I mastered the ascent with a loud breath and a bottle of water in 5 minutes. The view over the steep stairs and the sea is priceless.


Tempel Koh LarnAlso worth a visit is the Guanyin Temple on the way to the Buddha Footprint Lookout. From there you have a very nice view over the Ta Waen Beach of the island.

    If you are looking for a dip on hot days in Pattaya, do not go to the dirty water on Pattaya Beach. From Pattaya Beach speedboats drive for 300 baht per person to the island Koh Larn. There the water is much clearer and the beach cleaner. On Koh Larn there are many other attractions, such as temples and viewpoints. To stay there are even a few nice hotels on the island. Unfortunately the beaches are very crowded in the high season, so you should stay overnight or visit the island in the off season.
