About Travel to Pattaya
Pattaya is Thailand’s most visited seaside resort destination. This popularity is largely because of its having the closest good swimming beach to Bangkok, making it a convenient option for international visitors arriving in Thailand at Suvarnabhumi Airport, which is less than 2 hours by from road from Pattaya, and also for Thai tourists from the economically vibrant capital city. Pattaya has suffered from a having reputation as destination for sex tourists dating back to the 1960s were American soldiers took holidays in the town during breaks from fighting in the Vietnam War. This reputation is not entirely undeserved. Parts of Central Pattaya, such as Walking Street and Soi LK Metro, have many go-go bars frequented by single men. This is, however, only one part of Pattaya and increasingly the city is shifting towards other types of tourism and the city is a popular destination for families as well, particularly for Asian tourists.
Besides beaches, lots of restaurants, good hotels, shopping outlets, and nearby island with 8 beaches (Koh Larn), Pattaya is somewhere with lots of large attractions and these attract big numbers of foreign and domestic tourists, particularly those travelling with children. Amongst the most popular of these attractions are:
- Ramayana Water Park: Thailand’s largest water park.
- Cartoon Network Amazone: A large Cartoon Network themed amusement park.
- Silverlake Vineyard: Large vineyard to the east of the city with Italian style buildings set in beautiful countryside, which makes some of the best wine produced in Thailand.
- Buddha Mountain: To the south of the city, Buddha Mountain features a 109 metre tall carving of the Lord Buddha.
- Wat Phra Yai: This temple features an 18 metre tall statue of the Lord Buddha on a hill top.
- The Sanctuary Of Truth: Temple complex artistically craved from wood. Construction of this large project is ongoing. Visitor can also enjoy cultural shows and elephant rides.
- Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden: Located to the north of Pattaya, this privately owned attraction is comprised of several themed gardens, and it’s arguably the best of its kind in Thailand.
