Weekend in Pattaya

Since Pattaya is such a short distance away from Bangkok, this makes it easier for both local and foreign travellers to reach for a short stay. There is so much to see and do here that a weekend might not cut it. But here’s how to get the best of the city.

Day 1

Arrive at your Pattaya beach resort and settle down. Once you are comfortable, visit Jomtien Beach which is arguably better than Pattaya Beach. Have some watery fun and leave the evening free for Tiffany’s show, the famous ladyboy cabaret.

Day 2

Start with exploring Nong Nooch Tropical Garden which is a whopping 600 acres of green to observe! Have lunch at the restaurant here and set off to discover Buddhist temples, Prasat Satchatham and other cultural hotspots.

Day 3

Take a 45-minute ferry ride from Pattaya to Koh Larn or Coral Island which is a 4 km long island surrounded by crystal clear waters. There are several beaches to explore, renting a bike to do so is the easiest way to get about.

Places to stay

There are a number of places to stay in Pattaya from hotels like Avani Pattaya Resort and other budget-friendly options. If you want to go for a luxurious stay, this is possible too.
