Wi Harn Zean (Chinese – Thai Art Museum)
Wi Harn Zean Art Museum makes for a great day trip not far from Pattaya Beach. The museum is a mix of Chinese and Thai Art. The Chinese art was donated by the Chinese Government and includes some amazing pieces such as a few authentic clay warriors and an amazing collection of Chinese Buddha Statues. There is also a replica of the great wall of China as well as life size statues of ancient Chinese and folk heroes. The Thai section of this museum contains a whole wing of art related to the Royal House of Chakri, the current Thai King's dynasty. Another area of the museum contains large paintings of the life of the Buddha. A place worth stopping while in the area for sure.
