A former fishing village which has blossomed into a vibrant coastal conurbation, Pattaya is built around a crescent-shaped bay which skirts the city centre.
Pattaya is a fun, fascinating and good value holiday destination with something for everyone. Days can be spent sun worshipping along the four kilometre stretch of golden beach, or if you want a more active holiday you’ll find yourself in the right place; amusement and theme parks abound, as well as golf courses, scuba-diving centres, water sports, zoos, quirky museums and more. Restaurants and bars sit alongside the beach, along with enormous shopping malls. Put this together with the legendary nightlife scene and you have got the perfect resort for a lively villa holiday in Thailand.
Should you desire something a little less full-on, the laid back, broader beaches of Jomtien are found to the south and quieter Naklua to the north. Find your perfect Pattaya villa here.
