Why go to Pattaya

If you're after palm-fringed beaches during the day, entertainment by night, and good Thai food in between, a holiday in Pattaya will certainly deliver. Formerly a quiet fishing village on Thailand's eastern Gulf coast, today it’s one of the country’s liveliest beach resorts.

Sweeping around a turquoise bay, Pattaya's numerous beachfront attractions, hotels and neon-lit party streets offer visitors the perfect blend of rest, relaxation and revelling. At its heart is Pattaya Beach, a popular three-kilometre-long stretch that promises all the banana boat rides, jet skiing and parasailing you could wish for. South of the city, the mood is a lot more chilled – Jomtien's quieter beaches and safe waters are great for young families.

Bountiful beaches aside, Pattaya is brimming with history and culture. Highlights include the 105m-high (344ft) Sanctuary of Truth, an ornate, all-wooden temple; the hilltop Wat Phra Yai temple; and Mini Siam, a theme park that is home to some of the world’s most famous landmarks, in miniature size.
