Life’s a beach
Built around a long crescent bay, Pattaya has miles of gorgeous beaches to enjoy, form the lively to the more secluded. Pattaya Beach itself reflects the hustle and bustle of the city’s nightlife and is full of excitement and energy. You’ll find water sports, such as jet-skiing and speed boating, beach bars and a youthful crowd here. For something a little more sedate, head to Jomtien Beach for a family-friendly day relaxing on the white sands and splashing in the warm waters. Naklua Beach is popular for swimming, while Wong Amat Beach is one of the cleanest in the area. You can also easily indulge in some island-hopping from Pattaya. Pop across the waters to some of the bay’s tiny islands, such as Koh Larm, Koh Sak and Koh Krok and discover spectacular secret beaches, colourful marine life perfect for snorkelling, and stunning views out to sea.
While Pattaya is famous for its party scene, there’s lots on offer away from the bars and clubs.
Families have some fantastic attractions to choose from. Animals lovers can head to Elephant Village to meet these beautiful creatures, and even enjoy an unforgettable elephant ride. Or visit Pattaya Dolphin World, Pattaya Crocodile Farm or Khao Kheow Open Zoo for more animal fun. Pattaya also has some exciting theme parks, from the watery slides and pools of Ramayana Water Park, to the quirky Mini Siam and Mini Europe. Cartoon fans will love a trip to Cartoon Network Amazone to enjoy the thrill of the rides and meet the characters from their favourite shows.
Culture enthusiasts should check out some of the nearby temples, including the Sanctuary of Truth Temple, the Big Buddha and Wat Phra Yai, while Pattaya’s floating market gives you another fascinating glimpse into local customs and traditions.
