From floating markets, and riveting theme parks to beautiful beaches that will easily have you unwinding and embracing the magic of Pattaya, here is a list of some of the region’s finest hotspots.
Set foot on the global stage so to speak when at Mini Siam which depicts models of some of the world’s most sought-after sites including those of Thailand. Begin at the Victory Monument in Bangkok before beelining for the astounding structure of the Sydney Opera House set against clear blue skies and tinges of vegetation.
Ramayana Water Park
Labelled as the best and biggest water park in the country, Ramayana Water Park will leave its patrons with plenty of reasons to smile about and not to mention, splash about! With 21 themed rides that snake their way through and across the entirety of the Park, those wishing to beat the heat with those closest to their heart can venture here for a day filled with high-pitched squeals and exciting escapades.
Sanctuary of Truth
Merging the values of art, culture, religion and philosophy in one awe-inspiring display that rises to 105 metres in the air, the Sanctuary of Truth is a combination of a palace and temple (wat). Hewn out of teak, this attraction stands testament to Thai craftsmanship and architecture and upon entry, one can enjoy bouts of Thai boxing, go elephant trekking or simply look out across turquoise seas.
Pattaya Walking Street
A kaleidoscope of colour, festivity and thrill-seeking, the 1 km long Pattaya Walking Street ranks as one of Thailand’s busiest party and entertainment enclaves. You can dance your cares away into the wee hours of the morning, grab a cold one at a beer bar or dare yourself to sample a handful of fried grasshoppers. In fact, if you happen to be residing at a property like Travelodge Pattaya which is one of the famous hotels near Pattaya Beach, then you will be well placed to check out the pleasures of Pattaya Walking Street.
