Pattaya Travel Guide

Written by admin on January 7th, 2014. Posted in Pattaya

Pattaya, a small city in Chonburi Province, is an international play ground of renown, located on the east coast of the gulf of Thailand and facing a wide bay. Pattaya has the rare distinction of being both a beach destination and a full fledged city. This near paradoxical status ensures the creature comforts and entertainment facilities of a major metropolis plus all the delights of sun, sea and sand. Such is the variety, Pattaya offers that it is ideal for all kinds of visitors.

Accommodation in Pattaya ranges from luxuriously appointed beach side hotels with superb convention facilities to simple guesthouses. Sporting opportunities abound both on land and water including some of the finest golfing, fishing game and scuba diving anywhere in Asia. After dark, Pattaya offers all the magic of truly vibrant night life with spectacular varieties of restaurants, nightclubs, bars, discotheques, cock-tail lounges and cabarets.

Pattaya is literally a place where East meets West, both in colour and character and is probably the most cosmopolitan place in Thailand next to Bangkok.
