|Pattaya is one of the most famous resorts in Thailand, along with Phuket Island and many more. It is in Pattaya that the guests of the country find themselves in the very center of the "sea of debauchery" and this city is known to the whole world. It should be recalled that despite the abundance of entertainment - a beach holiday is not perfect here, and the Pattaya sea is not the cleanest in Thailand.
What can you see in Pattaya?
The clearest thing in the city is the sea - in the area of Jomtien Beach, whose coastline is six kilometers. The area is located in 10 minutes from the resort’s center - Volkin Street.
Pattaya is a resort stretched along the coastline, conventionally the city is divided into two parts - south and north. Between them is not a very long distance, but not for hiking. The most popular type of transport is mopeds and a fixed-route taxi (tuk-tuks, songteo).
The main resort of the Kingdom attracts guests not only a vibrant nightlife, but also a decent amount of attractions.
What can you think of and what to do in Pattaya? For example:
- Go on an excursion to the open zoo Khao Kheo, or the Tiger Zoo;
- Visit the crocodile farm, snake show;
- Take a trip on safari;
- Ride on elephants in the Elephant Village;
- Visit the spa salon or order a real Thai massage;
- Watch the show of transvestites: the Colosseum, Alcazar or Tiffany;
- Visit the go-go (striptease) bar or visit the "adult show";
- To get acquainted with the underwater fauna going to the aquarium;
- Swim at the Military Beach, or on the Coral Island (Ko Lan);
- Go diving, drive on quad bikes, jump from bungee;
- Take a day trip to Bangkok;
Pattaya is a convenient starting point for traveling around the country. Many organize their own combined tours. For example, a week is spent in Pattaya and another 2-10 days on one of the islands.
You can go to a not quite tourist (by Russian standards) place - the beach resort of Bang Saen. It is located between Bangkok and Pattaya. This is a famous and popular town among Thais. It's pretty quiet here, and the price tags are still more democratic than the neighboring Pattaya. Bang Saen beach is a good place for family relaxing holidays and holidays with children. Clean, gently sloping sandy beach, many restaurants with Thai cuisine and seafood. By the way, seafood is one of the most delicious in the country, as very fresh, local food boasts a variety of dishes. Also, the resort is equidistant from Pattaya and Bangkok, so it is possible to go on excursions and shopping there and there.
In general, not far from Bang Saen there are two unique Thai zoos. This is primarily Sri Racha Tiger Zoo - Tiger Zoo. As well as the Khao Kheo Open Zoo (Safari Park, contact zoo).
It’s literally 30 minutes from Pattaya Tiger Zoo, a little longer to Khao Kheo Open Zoo. The Tiger Zoo was opened in 1997 year. Several hundreds of Bengal tigers are kept in captivity here, and besides them there are elephants, bears, deer, camels and monkeys. Each guest can feed the animals, pet or take pictures with them. Every day there are shows with the participation of trained tigers, elephants, as well as a fascinating performance with angry crocodiles. It is considered very popular to order photos with young tiger cubs, a big tiger or a crocodile here. Reviews about visiting this zoo are twofold, some tourists are delighted, while others consider it inhuman because of keeping animals in captivity, albeit in decent conditions.
Studying the northern part of Pattaya, you will definitely see an amazing structure - the Temple of Truth. The uniqueness of the building is that it is the world's largest wooden temple, built of precious wood. It is believed that in its construction was not used a single nail. The height of the temple reaches more than 100 meters and it was built on the seashore. The walls of the temple consist of carved wooden sculptures reflecting the mythology and religions of various Asian countries. The idea is to show people the unity and integrity of the world. That, regardless of personal worldview and religion, all people are equal. This place is also called the Sanctuary of Truth, or The Sanctuary of Truth. Its construction began in the early eighties, the end is planned already in 2025 year! The construction of this temple is financed by a Thai millionaire, who also invested in the construction of the temple-museum of Erawan, and the park-museum of the ancient city of Mueang Boram, which is a suburb of Bangkok. The Temple of Truth clearly deserves the attention of tourists, however there is an obvious minus - a very high price of admission.
Cabaret transvestites "Alcazar" (Alcazar Pattaya)
World-class show, one of the business cards of the region - Alcazar-show. Along with another equally popular Tiffany show, music, dance and colorful costumes merged into one. Be sure to visit him, if you are already in Pattaya. The main actors here are the most beautiful transvestite divas of the region. Their show is one of the biggest and brightest in all of Asia. Tourists from all over the world know about him and come in search of "shows and shows". Zest - the composition of artists. All the "beauties" with a model figure and long hair are men. At least disguised. However, do not assume that the show is sexually motivated! Nothing like this - the show is very decent and you can safely take children to it.
Garden of miniatures If you want to make unique photos, then visit Mini Siam. This is a park of miniatures. It was built in 1986 year. Here, on a rather extensive and well-groomed territory, there are small copies of all known tourist sites in Thailand, Asia, Europe and America ... Mini-Siam is included in the list of almost all tourist routes, especially since not everyone has the opportunity to see the country's heritage with its own eyes "real size". Children will be very interested in visiting the park. In addition to the sights of Thailand and other Asian countries, you can see here many times reduced tourist sites from all over the world: the Colosseum, the Eiffel Tower, the pyramids of Egypt and much more.
Temple complex Wat Yang (Wat Yansangwararam Woramahawihan)
At a distance of thirty kilometers from Pattaya is the temple complex of Wat Yang. It is under the patronage of the Royal Thai Family. This is a favorite place for Buddhist rest and meditation. For this there is a special place equipped. There is a huge image of the Sitting Buddha, whose height is under 140 meters. The temple museum of Wat Yansangwararam is also located here. He is called shortly: Wat Yang. You can also visit the ethnic village, where the life and lifestyle of the six small nations of the North of Thailand, including the famous Karen tribe, is presented. Those very long-necked women.
Year after year, Pattaya as a resort is growing more and more rapidly, which made this place a great alternative to such popular beach resorts as Turkey or Egypt. Recently, in Pattaya, there are two new, huge water parks, which are located in the southern part of the city. Water parks "Ramayana" and "Amazon - Kartun Network" are strongly recommended to visit all guests of the city! They are different in their slides and rides. If you are with children, the Ramayana water park will be optimal, if your group is only adults (years with 11 and older), then it is better to have “CN - Cartoon Network”, or “Amazon”.
Of course, Walking Street
Like any resort in the world in Pattaya has its main street - this is Walking Street. In the daytime it is quite dull and depressing here, but with the arrival of dusk everything comes to life and lights up with a multitude of lights. After six in the evening, cars do not drive here, it becomes pedestrian at night. At the same time, bars, restaurants, go-go bars, massage parlors and other cereal places open their doors.
The main attraction is undoubtedly go-go bars. The entrance fee is usually the acquisition of a cocktail ... at a mildly inflated price)) By the way, Volkin Street loses its exotic appeal because of the crowds of Chinese tourists. Once there were many bars with Russian names, and the streets were wearing T-shirts with inscriptions in Russian. But when the 2014 crisis of the year happened, almost all of these institutions became extinct. You can also often meet European grandfathers who go hand in hand with Thai young girls ... or boys. Happenes. Pattaya is known to the whole world for its free morals and a mass of entertainment only “for adults”. One such entertainment is 69 X-Show.
Visiting such shows (and there are several of them in Pattaya, for example, the Big Eye - Big Eye show, not less well known in Thailand, will not be appreciated by many, especially people of conservative views. Here any of the TV shows is that not everyone allows themselves to be at home behind closed doors. the door. After all, for the most part they are performed in intimate places. The Chinese are delighted (they apparently don’t have that.) Some of the others leave the premises immediately after the start, some hold only to the middle, and some perceive this show as a kind of circus for adults.
Show-cabaret transvestites "Tiffany" (Tiffany's Show Pattaya).
Another very popular show where transvestites are artists. It was founded in the seventies of the last century, at the beginning it consisted of only three artists. Today, the troupe owns its building and many professional artists. The show is quite beautiful, you can safely come here with children. The only thing - the action itself stubbornly does not allow photographing. Cabaret has a world name. Every day tourists from all over the world come here to see this bright and entertaining program. Tiffany is one of the top ten shows in the world.
Nature lovers should definitely visit Madame Nong Nooch’s tropical garden. Here is a huge variety of plant species. Very well developed infrastructure, a lot of entertainment, there are restaurants, a small zoo and a bird park. Nong Nooch was created 26 years, first opened its doors in the 1980 year and is now the largest park in Southeast Asia. One of the most interesting places in Nong Nooch Park is the orchid garden, where more than 300 species of these flowers are represented. Most of the plants grow in hanging baskets, throughout the year there is maintained a certain temperature and humidity.
Buddha Hill (Budda Hill), Observation Point and Khao Phra Tam Nak or Khao
Any resort in the world has its Must See travel list. Pattaya is one such place is the Big Buddha's Hill, which is also the hallmark of the resort. The temple is interesting to all categories of travelers - from those who are interested in religion and history to lovers of architecture or nature. The main place in the complex is a gilded big Buddha statue, which sits in the lotus position. In order to approach the Buddha, one should climb the ladder consisting of 120 degrees. According to the local tradition, it is recommended to recalculate the steps going up to the top, if correctly counted - then the karma is good, if not, then it needs to be corrected.
When purchasing a tourist ticket at a travel agency, the price often includes a trip to a crocodile farm, which is considered one of the most interesting places not only in Pattaya, but also in Thailand as a whole. On the farm you can watch crocodiles, there is also a park of stones here, respectively, you will see fossilized trees with your own eyes, as well as a lot of exotic plants and animals. The main thing in this tour is a crocodile show.
Elephant Village - Pattaya Elephant Village
Traditional for Asia, the animal is an elephant, in Thailand there are many nurseries with these animals, one of which is located in Pattaya. Arriving in the village of elephants, you can watch these animals spend training, play various games, drive cars and much more. Anyone can go on an elephant ride through the jungle.
What to see on the coral islands
Pattaya is a great place to relax, there is only one thing - it’s quite muddy water in the sea and not very clean beaches. Fans of the clear sea should go one day to the Military Beach, or to one of the nearby coral islands, where there is white sand, turquoise and clear sea. Arriving on the island creates the feeling that you find yourself in paradise or on another planet, because here everything is completely different from the noisy Pattaya. The nearest island is Koh Lan (translated exactly as Coral Island), located only seven kilometers from Pattaya.
Underwater World - Pattaya Underwater World
Another attraction of the resort is the Underwater Pattaya Aquarium. This aquarium can not boast as large as a similar institution in Bangkok. Although for those who have never been in such places it will seem very interesting. At the entrance to the aquarium is a pool in which you can touch all the locals, there is also a small waterfall. Many fish, moray eels, lobsters, sea horses, turtles and other underwater inhabitants live in the aquarium.
Tips for city guests
Arriving in Pattaya, you should remember that this resort is known for its vibrant nightlife and free morals, so when visiting it, you need to remember about security in all its aspects.
What should a tourist remember in Pattaya?
In go-go bars and on the "show for adults" you can not use photos and video cameras. Well, think for yourself - who wants to have a picture on such a "workplace" turned out to be on the Internet?
On the territory of the country trade and drug use are prohibited, for this punishment can sometimes be very serious.
Food and water! Never drink tap water! Water should be drunk only bottled, but it is better to abstain from food in doubtful places.
Going on a trip, you should be careful with your belongings. Do not forget them in hotels and transport. In many places, you will encounter monkeys that can easily steal your personal belongings. In general, try to never contact with monkeys.
It should also be remembered that your impressions of relaxation depend on you, so be sure to take a good mood with you.

Tiger Zoo liked me and my sons very much. The show of tigers, crocodiles, elephants is great, the territory of the zoo itself is wonderful, beautiful everywhere. But most of all the emotions received from photographing with crocodiles and tiger cubs, which were watered with warm milk. Thank you very much! Delivered on a comfortable car, the trip is a pleasure!

|It's nice to book excursions through your website, conveniently, the agency is the best in Pattaya, definitely, recommended by friends who lived here. I did not think that a trip to the zoo would surprise me greatly, I went more for the sake of the children. In the end, I do not know who was impressed more. The trip was interesting, but thanks to the guide it was also informative, very informative. Super place, I want to go back there.
