Experience Pattaya – Vacation & Travel Information
Experience Pattaya and its sights. Pattaya was still a small fishing village in the 60s and has become a popular tourist destination over time. Meanwhile, there are beautiful skyscrapers and real estate to buy. The city of Pattaya is growing and growing, which is why it is constantly being rebuilt.
On the markets you can buy a lot of great things, always thinking of action, otherwise you pay too much. You can get 30% without problems, especially at the small stalls and at the night markets you get everything for half the price offered. It also counts as courtesy to trade in Thailand and is still a lot of fun.
Very popular with tourists are the many night markets. Good food, cocktails and a little in the evening, at lower temperatures, go for a stroll.
Why is Pattaya so popular with tourists?
The cheap leisure facilities, great bars and clubs, sexy thaigirls and of course the tropical feeling attract many tourists every year to Pattaya in Thailand. The good and versatile Thai food is a nice thing.
Walking Street is one of the most famous streets when it comes to nightlife in Thailand. In this approximately 1km long street there are a lot of bars, discos and especially strip clubs like the Angeles and Dollhouse. If you are looking for something to eat, you will find in Walking Street small stalls for BBQ and many international eateries as well as doner kiosks. Another good reason for a trip to Thailand are the cheap and relaxing massages. For a 1-hour oil massage you pay around 8 euros with tips depending on the exchange rate.
Have you already heard of the ladyboys or are you wondering what that is?
Especially the nightlife in Pattaya with the many bars and Thai girls is very interesting for tourists. The most famous streets are Walking Street, Beach Road, Pattayasaisong Road, Soi Buakhao and especially the Soi6, Soi7 and Soi8 side streets.

Travel Tips for a Pattaya Vacation
For the perfect holiday in Pattaya I have some good travel tips for you! The best, faster means of transportation in the city is with a scooter. However, the drive through the large and busy roads is uncertain, so you should take extra care. For a trip to Pattaya, the land of smiles, the bus is the cheapest alternative to a taxi. In the city itself, the Songhtaew Pick up Trucks, which are shared taxis, drive up and down the streets for 10Baht.
Rent a scooter in Pattaya
If you rent a scooter, please take pictures. Why should you take pictures of the scooter? Well, there are rip-offs who have dusted off that the scratch comes from you and then want to have a few thousand baht. If you take pictures before, you are already scared off such people. Do not forget that they want your passport as a guarantee. I gave you my International Driving License. Why did I do that? Because personal identification is too important and more expensive.
