Pattaya the most famous travel destination.

Pattaya is one of Asia’s largest beach resorts and located just 120km from Bangkok and is Thailand’s second most visited city. Boasting one of S.E Asia’s longest beachfront stretch of shopping malls, restaurants, bars and nightlife attractions, Pattaya continues to be one the most popular destinations in Thailand with a great choice of one day tours and tourist attractions.

Pattaya bay consists of two main beaches. Pattaya Beach runs parallel to the city running south from Pattaya Nuea to the famous Walking Streets 1.5 km strip full of beer bars, gogo bars, nightclubs and restaurants open til the early hours of the morning.

Jomtien Beach in the southern part of the bay area is separated from Pattaya Beach by Pratamnak Hill and Cozy Beach. Jomtien has many high-rise condos, beachside Best-Hotels, Best-Resorts and houses within private gated communities and is where the majority of foreign retirees choose to live with many shops, bars, and restaurants conveniently located within easy walking distance from home.  On weekends, Jomtien Beach gets very crowded with many Thais who drive down from Bangkok for a few nights relaxation with beach picnics and to enjoy the water-sport activities including jet skis, parasailing and small sail boat hire.

Pratumnak Hill is the quieter and more upmarket area popular for its smaller and less hectic Cozy Beach with a lot of high end condos and hotels and private houses and villas being built to keep up with the increasing demand. Located at the top is Buddha Hill and Temple with a great viewpoint looking over Pattaya Bay.
