A wonderful day of exploration is to visit some nearby fishing villages, less then 20 minutes drive from Pattaya City. The fishing villages give a glimpse of what life in Pattaya must have been like 30, 40 years ago. The villages of Bang Saray, Chong Samaesan and Ang Sila have some great beaches too, and the local community is friendly and hospitable. Boats can be rented for fishing or diving, and some good restaurants abound.
Bang Saray is the most popular, and is located not too far from the 'kilometer 165' sign on Sukhumvit Highway. Chong Samaesan is another ideal place for swimming, diving and fishing. Several tiny islands dot the area, such as Koh Samaesan, Koh Raet, Koh Chuang and Koh Chan. These islands all fall under the supervision of the Royal Thai Navy. Daytime sightseeing is permitted, but overnight lodging is a big no-no. Ang Sila, just five kilometers from Pattaya and one of the oldest seaside resorts in the area, is famous for its cottage industry, producing stone mortars and animal sculptures of elephants, horses and tigers. On the beach, one can find villagers shelling fresh oysters, while a wide variety of local handicrafts are also for sale.
