Pattaya really has to be one of the best places in the whole world for a weekend getaway, holiday or even an extended break as the city has so much to offer for the whole family. Not only are there great beaches and picturesque islands like Koh Larn right on your doorstep there’s also tones of world class restaurants, shopping centers and family entertainment like waterparks and sporting activities to keep all family members entertained, not to mention the world famous nightlife that Pattaya has to offer. When looking for a hotel you really are spoilt for choice with so many high quality establishments across the city to suit all budgets.
For those with families that are looking for a quieter more relaxed trip locations such as Pratamnak and Naklua are great both great choices as they are still not far from the center of Pattaya but offer an abundance of family friendly bars and restaurants as well as excellent beaches. Both areas have a large number of hotels many of which are right on the beach suit most budgets.
For people looking to be more in the heart of the action areas like Soi Buakow and LK metro are right in the center of Pattaya and are home to some of the most popular nightlife venues in the city. Hotels in these areas tend to be in the mid-range for both price and quality and are probably best suited to those wanting to party as nightlife in these areas stays open late.
South Pattaya is home to the world famous Walking Street where there again is an abundance of hotels to suit most budgets as well as a large amount of restaurants catering for all nationalities as well as world class nightclubs and bars. Many of the hotel’s and guesthouses here offer excellent value for money and its location makes getting to other areas of the city such as Jomtien, Pratamnak and central Pattaya extremely easy as it is located on the main baht bus route.
Another area of the city where prices tend to be a little less for hotels due to being a little further out from the city center is Jomtien. Popular with those wishing to have a little more relaxed stay like Pratamnak and Naklua, Jomtien is family friendly and again offers some top quality restaurants and bars as well as some great beaches especially Dongtan Beach which is found to the north of Jomtein. With hotels and guesthouses being a little further out their prices tend to be less of those in the city and provided excellent value for money. Jomtien has its own baht bus route into and out of the city and getting right into the heart of the city only takes about 15 minutes so is definitely a location those wishing to save money or looking for a quieter stay should consider.
