Pulsating Pattaya

This bustling seaside resort on the Eastern Gulf Coast of Thailand has long been famed for its vibrant nightlife and colourful bars – though today Pattaya holidays are becoming more about cultural sites and beautiful beaches. There are many developed coastal resorts dotted around Thailand, and in Pattaya you’ll achieve the highest level of luxury and comfort, with some top hotels and modernised amenities waiting to facilitate your stay.

Holidays to Pattaya are perfect for young travellers in search of a lively night out, while families will also find a number of fantastic attractions that will keep the young and young at heart entertained. Beach bums will revel in the expansive strips of sand, and culture vultures will also find a place in this characteristic resort, with numerous temples and religious buildings adding a touch of authenticity to your trip.

Beaches, Parties and Sacred Sites

There’s no point in flocking to a seaside resort if you’re not going to embrace the beaches, and luckily for you, there are several great options for those that have brought their swim gear. Pattaya beach itself reflects the hustle and bustle of the nightlife, crowded and full of excitement and energy. For something a little more sedate, families or those seeking some solace should head to Jomtien Beach to achieve a relaxing afternoon chilling on the sand. You’ll also find cleaner and calmer beaches at Naklua, providing a great setting for swimming.

Water sports are also rife around Pattaya, with some great snorkelling and diving trips on offer for those that fancy some exploration beneath the waves. For more fun and adventure during your Pattaya holidays, heading to the fantastic Khao Kheow Open Zoo and Elephant Village will prove a great way of pleasing the kids of animal lovers, while culture enthusiasts should check out some of the nearby temples, including the Sanctuary of Truth Temple, the Big Buddha and Wat Phra Yai, while Pattaya’s floating market is another fascinating insight into local customs and traditions.

Attractions

Adventurous visitors will love nothing more than the Flight of the Gibbon tour. This experience will see you zip lining across a forest canopy, exploring a spectacular landscape from above. If you’re interested in the world lurking beneath the sea you can experience it at Underwater World, an aquarium featuring themed sections of marine life, with feeding shows and the chance to dive into the tank.

Activities

The city’s beach offers a huge host of water sports, from jet skiing and kayaking to kite boarding and windsurfing. You can try some boxing and fitness training at the Muay Thai camp, or you can take the more relaxed route of a few rounds of golf in the city’s fine courses. One of the most unique experiences available is to take an elephant ride, or you can hike across the city’s natural surrounding landscape.

Festivals

The middle of April sees the city come to life with the Pattaya Festival, which hosts the Miss Pattaya Beauty Pageant, aquatic competitions, flower floats and fireworks displays. The Songkran Thai new year festival is held around the same time, and could be interpreted as a huge scale water fight, as water is thrown across the streets in celebration.
