About Pattaya

Pattaya is often described as an adult Disneyland. The city is a beach-side resort catering to many types of tourist. In Pattaya you will find families on holiday to people on package tours to men who come to enjoy the delights of Thai Ladies. It can cater very well for all types of tourists.

Pattaya is located approximately 150km to the south-east of Bangkok and about 125km from the international airport (Suvanabhumi.) It developed from a small fishing village following the arrival of US serviceman began arriving on R&R breaks from the Vietnam war via the nearby U-Tapao airport.

Pattaya is the oldest international beach resort in Thailand. However, it is not the most attractive. However its proximity to Bangkok and vibrant nightlife ensures that it receives many visitors from overseas and from Bangkok residents.

The highlife in Pattaya is varied but tends to cater for single men who are attracted by the Thai ladies who work in the bars in the city. However, there is plenty of 'family-oriented' entertainment venues.

Over recent times western standard shopping complexes aimed at tourists have been developed and continue to be developed. These tend to be located in the stripe bound bout Beach Road and second Road with North and South Pattaya Roads forming the northern and southern ends. Most western good and food can be found in the area.

Restaurants cater to every taste and desire. You can find quick, cheap and tasty local foods provided by carts, to western fast food to international standard restaurants. For the most part the food is cheap and of a good quality. For those who don't like the local food and on a moderate budget there are many restaurants available providing very good value western menus.

Accommodation is plentiful and varied. Guest house accommodation starting at 200 Baht a night can be found. At the other end there are internationally know hotels charging international prices. Between the two extremes there are many options.

What ever the reason you go to Pattaya you will have a good time if you go with the right attitude. There is plenty to keep most people occupied for a short stay. Day time activities include local temples, museums and theme parks. However it is at night where Pattaya really shines. The nightlife continues until after the sun rises in the morning, if you have the stamina.

Don't expect everything to be like at home. Keep in mind that Thai culture is not the same and you are advised to educate yourself a little before going. Two things never to do while in Thailand is to never insult the King or Buddha.
