pattaya and surrounding areas

As some may believe Pattaya might not be the most attractive seaside resort in Thailand, but it is probably one of the most popular. Attracting visitors from around the world from Europe to America New Zealand to Africa, the resort is lively and cosmopolitan city on the beach. The close proximity to Bangkok also makes it a popular weekend destination for those living or working in the Thai capital with an ever increasing in popularity with Thai nationals.

Pattaya certainly has its critics with some of the vibrant nightlife won’t be to everybody’s liking (but as the Pattaya property market will show times are changing with many luxury condominium projects http://realestatespecialiststhailand.com/for-sale/condo-for-sale/centric-sea-condo-cs1513.html  constructed or under construction), with a reputation in the past as the Sin City however this is all changing with a walk down walking street will prove, you will now find high class restaurant’s Music venues entertainment complexes that are not related to the tag of Sin City,

However, the many repeat visitors to Pattaya can justifiably say that the resort City of Pattaya has a great location, is easy to get around with undoubtedly the best public transport system with the Baht buss hop on hop off system with a cost of only 10 baht anywhere, These repeat visitors general end up purchasing holiday homes or residential property house or condominium. http://realestatespecialiststhailand.com/for-sale/house-for-sale/premium-house-hs1247.html

Pattaya now also enjoys some world-class 5 Star branded hotels and facilities. The city is a melting pot of all nations and people from all parts of Thailand and worldwide. Whilst the bar scene, go-go bars and neon lights of Central and South Pattaya are prominent there is now so much more that Pattaya has to offer, with more and more entertainment venues opening with the latest being the world renowned HOOTERS NOW ON Pattaya beach.

Where to stay in Pattaya are you looking for budget or luxury, Pattaya has the full range from Back packers hostels to absolute 5 star luxury with all the leading branded hotels are now established here In Pattaya, plus the option of renting a serviced apartment or private house for rent with private swimming pool.

Central Pattaya is the main shopping district with many shopping malls such as Royal Garden, The Avenue, Central Festival, Mikes and many of the smaller market style boulevard’s, Restaurant’s from all corners of the world, don’t forget to experience the culinary delights of the Thai street food vendors.  

South Pattaya is where you will find the famous Pattaya walking street with the amazing night life from quite cozy cafes and bistros to some fantastic but loud live music with mazing light shows that would not be lost in Las Vegas, there is something here for all visitors to enjoy GOGO cabaret shows live entertainment street performers.

A gay friendly area known as Boyz town and Pattaya Land  is also found in South Pattaya with classy massage parlors general beer bars, Cabaret and so much more gay or straight you will be made to feel at home here and enjoy the ambience, Gay friendly hotels are also found in this area.

Moving along the coast you will arrive at the more family orientated Jomtien beach which is fast catching up with Pattaya city for night life beer bar complex called Rumpole many side streets such as Jomtien Soi 5 also known as Soi immigration with bars and restaurants, if you are along this road highly recommended is the long established Simple Simons restaurant for European food, soi 6 and 7 also offer beer bars and restaurant’s accommodation is also found along these Sois but be careful can be noisy,

Jomtien complex is a predominately gay friendly area but not as busy as Pattaya Boyz town again though some fine restaurants and entertainment establishments in this area, again as in the Pattaya gay scene you do not have to be gay to enjoy this area as all are made welcome and fun evenings are had by all.    

In the opposite direction you will come to Naklua Wongamat and North Pattaya
The area of Naklua and north Pattaya is very popular with German and Scandinavian visitors. There are plenty of bars and restaurants, but the entertainment isn’t as full-on as it can be in South or Central Pattaya. The further north you head into Naklua, the more it has the appeal of a more traditional Thailand town. The market and fishing boats are places where few tourists tend to go, but are well worth a visit to experience real Thai culture, Wongamat has many high class hotels and Luxury Condominiums for sale compared to the rest of the world beach front condos are still relatively inexpensive

Pattaya Jomtien Dongtan

Pattaya and the surrounding areas are places unlike any other, and will always make a lasting  impression.

Whether it's the Thai culture, the nightlife with the cabaret shows dining experiences from the twenty Baht Thai noodles on the side of the road to the most amazing Seafood restaurants that are abundant,

The climate, the bargain  prices, or the warm friendly people Thai people , there is something here that leaves visitors with a longing to return.

Thailand is the land of smiles and   gets this name from the amazing Thai people who are patriotic beyond words and Love there country,

Night life of Pattaya; lets take a quick note on what we mean by Pattaya Nightlife. Unlike most western countries, much of what makes up the daytime economy and life style here is open late into the night and early mornings. You'll find in Pattaya that shopping outlets, drinking outlets, massage parlous, sports facilities, gymnasiums, Basically the things in the western world that would close early evening here in Pattaya they spring to life. A true city that never sleeps.

Pattaya as a  city in general has developed rapidly over the last 40 to 50 years and the development is continuing at a rapid rate, once a quite fishing village has now turned into a truly great city to spend time weather on vacation or living here there is something for every one.

Pattaya has been dubbed 'Sin City' and is regarded as being the number one  choice destination for a Thailand sex vacation. Let's be absolutely clear, the 'Sin-City' name tag is well deserved, But times are changing with the area becoming more family orientated, Just take a look at the all the new international water parks that are opening up, 

Pattaya still has a  larger array of tourist focused night time venues from which to choose from more than any other destination in Thailand. Even Bangkok's main tourist focused nightlife industry pales in comparison, again though the times are changing with many nightlife activities to do that does not revolve around sex tourism, we now have a 24 hour international Go-Kart track for example.  

Whilst Pattaya nightlife is second to none, you should not assume that every other Westerner you will see on the street is here just for that. More and more families are choosing to holiday here, and there is a large and growing expat community. Pattaya caters for all sorts of visitors these days, it is not all about naughty nightlife. There are thousands of bars to choose from and everywhere is within walking distance. However, if you don't want to walk, then the public transport has to be the best and cheapest in the world, metered Taxi, Baht bus hop on hop off, plus the abundance of motorcycle taxis that will ferry you any where anytime (Bit like a Martini) on the main roads,

Pattaya is Changing at a formidable  rate with the infrastructure getting better by the day making day to day living as a tourist or a resident so much easier,  The new Jomtien second road which now makes quick and efficient travel between Jomtien and Pattaya and all the way to the main Highway of Sukhamvit in Na Jomtien, three lane high from South Pattaya through Jomtien and on To Na Jomtien.

Now with the news of the impending high speed rail link and the upgrade to the local domestic airport Utapo to a international standard airport the future is bright for the economy and residents of the region,
