Welcome To Pattaya

Pattaya (Thai: พัทยา) is a city in Thailand, located on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand
about 165 km southeast of Bangkok located within but not part of Amphoe Bang Lamung
in the province of Chon Buri. Pattaya is the first resort area which have been developped in Thailand.Meaning the 'south-west monsoon wind" and correctly pronounced
"Putt-tuh-YAH" not "Patt-EYE-uh", it ranks as one of the most successful beach resorts
in the world, with some 5.4 million visitors arriving in 2005. Increasing numbers of tourists come from the former Soviet Union and East Asia.

The city of Pattaya is a self governing special municipal area which covers the whole
tambon Nong Prue and Na Kluea and parts of Huai Yai and Nong Pla Lai.It is located in the heavily industrial Eastern Seaboard zone, along with Si Racha, Laem Chabang, and Chon Buri.
However, it remains mostly a tourist city, with very light industry.

Pattaya is second only to Bangkok in high rise buildings, as many condos for foreign residents are built, and has a modest skyline.
The city's economy benefits from its relative proximity to Bangkok.
It was originally a quiet fishermen village, which exploded in 1965, during the Vietnam War,
as it was used as a recreation place for G.Is coming from the front. Since then, Pattaya never ceased its development to become a huge city with high buildings and towers looking alike the beaches of the "costa del sol" in Spain. easilly reachable by express way or the brand new Highway, Pattaya benefits now of an international reputation.
Nature and facilities are combined to offer the visitors a pure stay of dream : sun, hot sea,
a white sand beach of more than 6 km, delicious seafood, high grade hotels and vacation
apartments, uncountable shops and super stores and hundreds of sport activities
(sailing, wind surfing, diving, deep fishing, water skying, parascending,
tennis.... and, above all, Golf, with about fifteen 18 to 36 holes courses !!)

which made Pattaya get the desserved nick name of "Jewel of the East Coast".And about nightlife in Pattaya, no need to be dishonest and deny the facts, it is the main motive of most of the tourists coming to Pattaya. You will find here more "Go go bars" and beautiful girls for rent for the night (and more, if financial affinities) than everywhere else in Thailand (or even in the rest of the world) and this is the reason of the "fiendish" reputation of Pattaya !! Without even entering "bars", a simple walk on the "Beach Road" late in the evening will be far enough to convince you... But it would be wrong to restrict Pattaya to this, as it has much more trumps and this is why you will meet families on Jomtien beach or when going on excursion to the neighbour
islands, as, more than a den of vice, Pattaya offers all the western modern comfort, high
grade hotels, and at Bangkok prices, not overtaxed tourist places prices, with a stunning
beach and activities for all ages.
