For those in search of sun, sand and sea, as well as plenty of activity on holiday, Pattaya is a Thai resort that likes to live it up. By day, there is lots to do - if you want to. Sample some watersports, or simply laze away the day from the comfort of your sun lounger. By night, Pattaya throbs with life, making it the ideal destination for those who like to party. If you prefer the more sedate side of things, it may be wise to opt for the Pattaya hotels positioned outside the busy resort centre.
Although the Thai city can be very lively, it can also make a great place for a family holiday too. The resort is built around a wide, sandy crescent of sand that beach lovers will adore, while the warm tropical waters make it ideal for swimming as well as watersports. South Pattaya is nightlife central, making that the area you want to either aim for or avoid depending on your preferences, while North Pattaya is more sophisticated.
Cheap hotels in Pattaya are often based in the northern part of town, making them great bases for those who flock here to dance until dawn. Meanwhile, 5-star hotels in Pattaya tend to be located in the quieter, more exclusive southern side of the city and its outskirts.
As you might expect, the food is a highlight of a visit to any Thai resort, and Pattaya has plenty of great value cafes and restaurants to sample. As this city caters well for Western palates, finding food the children will enjoy is no problem at all, while adults can be a bit more adventurous and savour spicy Thai curries, Pad Thai noodles and classic Eastern stir-fried dishes.
There’s no doubt that Pattaya likes to party, and come nightfall there really is everything on show in this Thai resort. Whether you want to attend a beach party, see a cabaret show, dance to pumping beats at a large club or have a peek at some of the more risqué venues, it’s difficult not to stay up all night. There’s no doubt that this Thai city sizzles, and it’s hard not get drawn into the whirlwind of non-stop partying.
