Less than an hour away from Bangkok sits one of the sexiest cities in Thailand with lots to offer visitors. From its stunning beaches and coastline, to fun packed activities and vibrant naughty nightlife. Pattaya draws in punters, backpackers, families, package tourists and weekenders alike. This exciting destination is packed full with entertainment, activities and things to do for all ages. Pattaya offers lots of things to do and see for everyone. Whether you love golf, theme parks, chilling on the beach or watersports.
The Land of Smiles is well-known for its friendly hospitality and Pattaya is no exception. Stroll along the beach, through the centre or call into the local store. You’ll always be greeted with a smile.
Some may refer to the area as nothing more than a nocturnal city packed full with half naked woman dancing in Go-Go bars, and to an extent this is true. However, Pattaya offers so much more than just a vibrant and buzzing nightlife scene. It is as much a top holiday destination for couples and families, as it is for single people and groups of friends – you simply need to know where to head.
Things To Do
Each area of Pattaya offers something different. Central areas including Walking Street and Beach Road are better suited to night owls who love a fun packed night out whilst getting to know the locals. Naklua is perfect for couples and Jomtien is ideal if you like to be near the action with great beaches, but still like your quiet nights too.
Pattaya is blessed with no less than 15km of coastline offering everything from secluded coves, to long sweeping bays packed full with watersports activities. Pattaya Beach is one of the most convenient and easiest beaches to get to from the city centre. Offering a wide choice of hotels, restaurants, bars, watersports activities along the shoreline and lined with sun loungers and umbrellas. It’s easy to see why this beach is popular with tourists and locals alike. Head a little further afield however, and you’ll witness a slightly more relaxed vibe on the northern beaches or at Jomtien Beach to the south.
Pattaya is more of an activity destination, rather than a sightseeing city. It’s an ideal holiday destination for those who like to keep busy; water parks, amusement centres, theme parks, extreme sports, leisure activities, shopping – it’s all here. Whether you’re a solo traveller or large family on vacation, Pattaya offers a huge variety of things to do.
Finding the perfect accommodation is easy. There is so much choice and an option to suit all budgets. Pattaya has some fantastic options for backpackers as well as some truly extraordinary 5* hotels. Whether you’re searching for basic weekend accommodation or require something a little more exclusive, Pattaya has plenty of options. The very best resorts, condos and villas can be found in many of the top beach areas, right in the middle of all the action and close to popular attractions, restaurants and bars.
