Pattaya Attractions

Top Attractions

Mini Siam and Europe - A miniature city that will delight young and old. Situated near Pattaya Klang. This is also a history lesson and brings together Asian and European cultures in a unique way. The models are exquisitely detailed and they open from 7am till 10pm.

Million Years Stone Park and Crocodile Farm - Located about 9km from town and breeding pens hold about 1000 crocodiles, this could be boring, so they put a zoo here and Bonzai trees in an interesting stone formation (The million years is to attract visitors)

Wat Yansangwararam - Just head 12km south of the city to enter this Buddhist temple. The building is surprisingly modern and the king has a big say in it's upkeep. Meditation courses are available and it's only 3km to the tourist village of Nong Nooch.

Pattaya Elephant Village - You wil pass this on the way to Siam Country Club Golf Courses, but don't pass, rather stop to visit and discover the world of the Elephant. They will demonstrate their work in the surrounding forests and then give you a game of football to watch. (Don't join in)

Chez Pascal This realy is 5 star dining, situated in a little Soi across the road and to the left of Mikes shopping mall on second road. Pascal is Swiss and a perfectionist! The Lamb rack is great, and the mixed starter (non veg) is worth the visit alone. This place is not cheap (I spend around 1800 Baht a trip including wine)but to dine like this in London would cost you over £200 per head.

Pattaya Beaches

Jomtien Beach - South of the city you will find this long stretch of sandy beach. The section just south of the hill is popular with locals. You can purchase your food from passing vendors (Who can be painful after a while) or even have a Thai massage right where you are lying.

Pattaya Beachs - Lovely stretchs of golden sand near the city, but it does get very crowded. You'll be spoiled for choice with vendors offering their goods non stop. You can also rent boats from here and larger boats tour the nearby islands.North and central beachs are the best choice for a quieter time.

Wong Phra Chan Beach - This beach is only 1 km long and you are fairly sheltered from the vendors. Crystal clear water fringed with soft golden sands and backed by shady greenery.

Chom Thian Beach - 3km of paradise and popular with local holidaymakers. Good facilities include restaurants and beach equipment rental. Big enough to find a serene spot.
