Pattaya lies on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand, about 100 kilometers (62 mi) southeast of Bangkok, in Thailand. It was a fishing village until the 1960s.

Stretching along Thailand’s eastern seaboard, it is split into three main areas – Naklua, Pattaya Beach and Jomtien – with a few other districts within easy reach. Each has its own unique atmosphere and attractions: Naklua is quiet and ‘more Thai’ but has the best beaches, Jomtien has a relaxed and easygoing pace, while Pattaya thoroughly deserves its reputation as a party destination.

From sunrise to sunset, Pattaya’s beaches are constantly brimming with life, as water sports lovers and sun worshippers take to the waters. It also has first-class facilities for golfing, sailing, scuba diving and plenty more.
