If lazy sunbathing on Pattaya or Jomtien beach and the the city’s bustling nightlife shouldn’t be enough to keep you busy round-the-clock, Pattaya has a wide range of tourist attractions that cater to whatever your taste may be.
In the last couple of years only, Pattaya has seen the addition of a vast number of new attractions that appeal specifically to family vacationers and reflect the city’s changing tourism profile.
Roughly estimated, it’s got to be something like 1,000 to 2,000 “beer bars” all over Pattaya, perhaps even more?
So regardless of where you stay in Pattaya, if you’re looking for a nearby place to have a drink, chat with one of the ladies – or to find sexy female companionship for a couple of hours or the rest of the night – you’ll never have to search for very long.
There also seems to be a crackdown underway on foreigners with “too many” tourist visa stickers in their passport … Less than a mere two-hour drive Suvarnabhumi Airport and Bangkok, Pattaya has become famous for its tropical beaches, multitude of nearby tourist attractions, excellent restaurants and shopping facilities but, most notably, its world-famous nightlife that kick-started Pattaya’s tourism boom.
Pattaya in the 21st century, however, can no longer be reduced to its bustling nightlife, thousands of beer bars, nightclubs and massage parlours.
Although beer bars are concentrated most densely in the South Pattaya area, bars can be found virtually anywhere around Pattaya.
And let’s get this straight from the start: Although the female staff of a beer bar will usually all be prostitutes, bars in Pattaya aren’t just some kind of “brothels”.
And if you’re the more adventurous type – elephant trekking in the jungle, a thrilling jet ski or banana boat ride, bungee jumping or a scuba diving trip, might be just the thing you need after a night on the town?
