What to Do in Pattaya
Pattaya offers countless things to see and do, long lists of activities and attractions that promise to keep young and old alike entertained during their stay. The natural place to start is at the beach! Pattaya Beach is great for watersports, and nearby Jomtien Beach one of Thailand's best spots for windsurfing. Be ambitious! Learn to sail or parasail. Ride a boat, go snorkeling to offshore islands.
Away from the beach, other active pursuits certain to ramp up adrenalin levels include go-carting, golf and water-parks. And - with attractions like elephant villages, panoramic viewpoints, orchid farms and quirky museums up its proverbial sleeve, as well as many lush spas - Pattaya is just as fun for those wishing to play the humble sightseer or get pampered. Explore this comprehensive What to See and Do guide and you certainly won’t go short for ideas to keep you busy.
