Thailand is extremely proud of its heritage and boasts an abundance of cultural and artistic wonders. Temples can be found in every town and historic monuments are found on every corner. Pattaya however is not brimming with culture. This is largely because it is such a new city and because it was built as a tourist resort, not as a cultural gem. Pattaya may not be the ideal destination for culture buffs, but there are a good selection of museums and temples to keep you entertained. The Bottle Art Museum showcases a collection of over 300 pieces of original artwork that are enclosed in glass bottles. Works include famous tourist attractions such as temples and palaces, all of which have been carefully crafted by Dutch sculptor Peter Bedelais. Opens daily: 09:00 to 20:00
