Travel Guides for Pattaya
Pattaya delivers "Fun and Sun" like no other place. This is truly the entertainment beach capital of Thailand, with hotels for all budgets, more watersports than one can practice in a month, more restaurants than one can eat in a year and more sights to see than anywhere else in the entire kingdom.

The wonderful beaches, diverse culture and unparalleled recreation make Pattaya an ideal destination. Choosing the right Pattaya Resort can turn a good trip into a great trip. But what makes one Pattaya Resort better than another?
Pattaya is easily accessible either with direct international flights or from other major tourist destinations within Thailand like Bangkok or Phuket. Scenic overland trips by train, bus or car from Bangkok are also possible.

In addition to the Land of Smiles, I would say Pattaya is the "Land of Sports". You can find 3 international bowling alleys, Thai boxing training and demonstrations, full fledge fitness centers and more golf courses per capita than in Ireland.

Pattay has a tropical climate with three seasons: Hot (March-May), Rainy (June-October) and Cool (November-February). It is hot all year round, there is little difference between the hottest and coolest months, and average temperatures are around 27° C.
In Pattaya, as in all of Thailand, people have a lot of respect for older folks and usually they are addressed as Pee meaning older brother or sister. A term of endearment for youngsters is calling them Nong which means little brother or sister. In restaurants is better to address the staff as Pee or Nong than waiter or waitress.

Pattaya used to be a small fishing village until it was discovered by the American GI's looking for R&R during the late 50's and early 60's, but all that is long gone, today Pattaya is the largest beach resort area in Thailand.
Pattaya scuba diving is most popular off the shores of nearby islands. Though it is possible to go diving off Pattaya beaches, the murky waters make it less than desirable. The best Pattaya diving is at the Pattaya islands.
