While your visiting London you must not forget to pass by the best shops, here are the most desirable shopping spots in London.
Deep in the heart of Pattaya rises a rock formation towering over the landscape, its barren crags tempered and complemented by the serene beauty of Buddha’s golden figure etched onto its grey face. This is Thailand’s famous Buddha Mountain, one of the landmarks most visited by locals and foreigners alike.
Its Golden History
The Buddha Mountain was commissioned in 1996 for the Golden Jubilee of Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej, celebrating 50 years since his rise to the throne. The King officially named the structure “Phra Phuttha Maha Wachira Uttamopat Satsada”, which means “the Buddha is the prophet who enlightens and shines like a diamond”. However, it is more commonly referred to by the name of the mountain, Khao Chee Chan, or more popularly, Buddha Mountain.
Engraving the Enlightened One’s Image
The mountain derives its flat face from extensive mining and quarrying in the 1960s, a quality that lent itself well to the creation of the engraving. Carving the image of the Buddha via laser took a mere two days, but filling it in with gold leaf took several months.
The results were worth it: at 70 meters wide and 130 meters high, this is one of the largest images of the Buddha in the world.
A Monument to Thai Faith and Loyalty
Buddha Mountain is a testament to the devotion of the Thai people to both the tenets of Buddhism and to their king. The park surrounding the mountain comprises wide gardens, altars and pavilions, creating a relaxing atmosphere.
The temperance exhibited by the Buddha Mountain stands in clear contrast to that of the main Pattaya resort complex, which is famous for its active nightlife and high commercialization. This landmark serves as an excellent location for introspection, allowing for a chance to achieve oneness with nature and the self under the shadow of the founder of Buddhism.
How to Go to the Buddha Mountain
Thankfully, getting there is relatively easy. Its convenient location 15 kilometers south of Pattaya City will let prospective travelers book a bus or a taxi relatively inexpensively.
For those wishing to drive, Sukhumvit Road leading south is the way to go. The Ambassador City Jomtien resort serves as a landmark nine kilometers down this road, from which Khao Chee Chan is only a little less than five kilometers away. Turn left at the “Khao Chee Chan” sign, leading you to both the nearby Wat and the mountain itself.

At first glance these photos by Andre Ermolaev look like twisting abstract paintings, but in reality are aerial photos of rivers flowing through Iceland’s endless beds of volcanic ash. Given its name and stereotypical depiction it’s somewhat surprising to learn that the small country named after ice is home to no less than 30 active volcanic systems. You’ll remember the eruption of the massive Grímsvötn volcano just last year that spewed some 120 million tons of ash in the first 48 hours and snarled air traffic for days.

Joey says: I traveled to Siberut, Indonesia last August and slept on the front porch of some of the most incredible people I’ve ever met- The Mentawai. During the trip I became good friends with the Shaman’s that guided me through the rainforest- Bajak Lala, Toikot, Tai Jia Jia and Tarason. These medicine men acted as a bridge into their culture, introducing me to their families, friends and complex spiritual beliefs. I had to repay them some how…
