Pattaya Thailand

Pattaya is a phenomenon. Once a tiny fishing village, it has developed into an international playground of such renown as to be justly dubbed the "Jewel of the East Coast".

Located just 145 km southeast of Bangkok, Pattaya can be visited on a day trip from the capital, although most visitors are so enchanted by the variety of things to do and see that even a week's stay doesn't seem long enough.

Colorful and alive with activity, Pattaya is unrivaled as a beach resort. It is in a class of its own, offering more attractions in greater profusion than any other single destination in Southeast Asia. Day and night, it presents an ever changing kaleidoscope of fun and thrills.

Facing a wide bay and a long majestic sweep of beach, Pattaya has been groomed over more than three decades for the international visitor, and today, it boasts the unique distinction of a beach resort with city status. Where most other resorts rely simply on their natural surroundings, Pattaya makes an all-out attempt to provide the best of everything in an exhaustive mix of facilities.

Indeed, Pattaya can be whatever you want it to be. Such is its variety that it is ideal for all kinds of visitors. While there is plenty to keep the children happily occupied, there is also everything for the sports enthusiast, for couples of all ages seeking rest and relaxation, and for those who are simply looking for good times in the sun.
