Pattaya & Thailand News Update
Pattaya Travel Guide
Since Pattaya's "discovery" by U.S. soldiers in the early 1960s, and its rapid transformation from a virtually "unknown" sleepy fishing village to Thailand's most popular tourist destination, Pattaya has gone through some significant changes but has always remained loyal to its good old "Funtown" image.
Less than a two-hours drive from the capital Bangkok and Suvarnabhumi Airport, Pattaya has become famous for its sunny tropical beaches, dozens of nearby tourist attractions, fantastic restaurants and shopping facilities but, most notably, its infamous nightlife and "sex industry" with thousands of bars and sexy girls, which initially laid the foundation for Pattaya's boom.
Pattaya in the 21st century, however, together with Jomtien Beach and Naklua, can no longer be reduced to its bustling nightlife, bars, nightclubs and massage parlours, but attracts millions of foreign tourists from all over the world every year.
Pattaya today has something on offer for everyone - single tourists, young and old, couples, families and pensioners alike. So no matter what you're looking for, you can be sure you'll find it in Pattaya.
Find Pattaya Hotels & Resorts
Pattaya, Jomtien Beach and Naklua, offer a wide range of hotels, beach resorts and guesthouses - from budget accomodation to five-star luxury seaside resorts.
In general, rooms in Pattaya are fairly cheap compared with other popular tourist destinations in Thailand - with room rates starting at less than 400 Baht per day.

Alright gentlemen, we all know you're coming to Pattaya only for the beautiful beaches, the fascinating Buddhist temples and delicious Thai food. Fair enough; that's what I would tell my mom, too. But even if these assumptions were true ... If you have read Pattaya's history carefully, or just stroll down Pattaya's (in)famous Walking Street, you simply can't ignore the "naughty" side of Funtown. Pattaya is a true Disneyland for adults, revelers of all age groups and sexes, but particularly single male mammels. After all, let's assume this was the main reason why the U.S. soldiers in the early 1960s fell in love with Pattaya so quickly!
And if Thailand's amazing culture should really be your major subject of interest, you may still have heard that prostitution, in spite of not being "strictly legal" in the Land of Smiles, has a lively and much longer tradition in Thailand than modern-day mass tourism, and can't just be swept under the table? And Pattaya, let's not beat around the bush, provides the perfect environment for in-depth field research on this tricky aspect of Thai culture ...
