For those seeking a bit of sun, a bit of fun and relaxation too whilst on shorter stays in Bangkok – as the saying goes “Head on Down to Pattaya” (pronounced phatthaya in Thai). A populous tropical paradise in every sense of the word, the coastal city located on Thailand’s eastern Gulf is known for its beaches and a great selection of activities to indulge in (with a little something for every one). From spectacular family-styled resorts, stunning 5-star beach hotels, luxury stand-alone villas, shopping malls, cabaret bars & go-go bars, 24-hour clubs (yes the party never stops here), to outstanding golf courses and magnificent views overlooking the world-famous Pattaya Bay – this short excursion from Bangkok (just a 2 1/2-to-3hr drive) is a short convenient beachside excursion that’s well worth the trip… Find a hand-picked collection of luxurious offerings by our Go Places Recommended Partners™ in the Explore section. Enjoy!
How to Get Around
Tried and tested, the best way to get down to Pattaya from Bangkok is most definitely by a Chauffer driven vehicle, we recommend using our transfer partners (mozio.com). Hiring a private car is also a sure bet, especially for those looking to take a scenic drive (rentalcars.com) and exploring Pattaya whilst there, or opt for a more luxurious VIP Limousine Service (firstclassbangkok.com). Traffic is inevitable in Pattaya, especially enroute to highly-frequented or popular areas e.g. Pattaya’s famous Walking Street (closed to traffic from 6:00pm onwards) or the beach road, hence we do recommend you pre-book or book a taxi (with our taxi partners grab.com), or jump onto a Tuk Tuk or a Songthaew (baht bus). These are the most ideal ways to get to and around Pattaya.
