About Travel to Pattaya


Pattaya is one of Thailand’s busiest tourist destination attracting an estimated 9 million in 2019. This large busy resort town has a city centre population of over 300,000 permanent residents and more than 100,000 hotel rooms. Pattaya is popular for a number of reasons, first and foremost its proximity to Bangkok. The city has one of the closest major beaches to Bangkok making it an ideal destination for weekend breaks both for people resident in Bangkok and people flying into Bangkok wanting to stay on the coast within easy travelling distance of the main international airport. Pattaya is often seen as being primarily a destination for men to visit bars and in some parts of the city, particularly the infamous Walking Street, the city has a highly visible sex industry. What the city is increasingly becoming known for, however, is as a family holiday destination. The city attracts a lot of family groups from countries such as India, China and Russia, although many choose to stay outside of the Central Pattaya and in quieter districts of the city such as Jomtien. Value for money accommodation and places to eat and drink can found across the city because the competition for customers is fierce driving down prices.
