A date with the pretty beach

Slip into your beach wear to kiss the sea. Even sitting by the sea shore is an experience in itself. You can connect with the vastness of the ocean and yet remain connected with the urban world all at the same time.

A stroll down ‘The Walking Street’

Unhide your naughty side by taking a walk through the flamboyant, sexy ‘walking street’ that’s free of traffic. The smoking hot atmosphere is absolutely electric.  

A word of caution: If you are travelling with your family, especially with young children, its best to leave them in the hotel.

Unwind and relax with Thai massage

You can de-stress and get your body rid of all the fatigue by pampering yourself with a relieving Thai massage. Your feet, shoulders and head won’t stop thanking you enough!

Gorge on the delicious local sea food

If you are a non-vegetarian, then Thai food will impress you to the core. Pattaya has a wide variety of sea-foods to offer – from shrimps to prawns, crabs to mussels, you have it all. A number of road side food stalls will help you get a slice of the sea food.

For the vegetarians - Fruit stalls are available in plenty. You can grab a bite of Thai's popular Durain fruit.

Empty your pockets to pick up some authentic Thai souvenirs

Thailand is a great patron of arts and crafts. If you are in Thailand, you have to pick up some souvenirs. Bet, you won’t stop admiring them. You may visit the Luk Dod handicraft emporium in Chon Buri. You may also drop by the floating market to grab some handicrafts.
