Weather

by Izzy01

Im looking to go to Pattaya next year, and was wondering when the best weather is to go, and are there many jellyfish that are in the seas?

Thank you in advance x

I am not an expert, but I can tell you that I went to Pattaya in mid-April and there weren't any jelly fish then, but they expected them within a few weeks. Pattaya is very commercial with a bias towards West Europe(most restaurants seemed to be german, and there are lots of scandinavian bars) and full of prostitutes, but very good for diving and snorkelling if you go out on a boat.

The weather is hot all the time. A little more rain some time and a little less other times. Weather link: http://www.guidetothailand.com/thailand-travel-information/weather.htm

But, even when it is "rainy season" the rain does not usually last long and there is plenty of sun for most of the day. During heavy rainfall there may be a short while while the drains manage the deluge. With exceptions rain and minimum flooding is usually no problem (unless it is your store or house that got flooded of course!) Choose a room for your hotel on a second or higher floor.

Good luck.

Izzy01 -

You've already had useful comments on the weather in Pattaya, but I will offer a comment on a different topic.

Your profile gives a distinctly female name and a home location in the UK.
I am wondering why would would want to go to Pattaya at all.
Are you aware that the main industry in Pattaya is cheap prostitutes and cheap beer?

Yes, there are other activities to fill up your time in Pattaya, but the entire area for tourists is fundamentally based upon prostitution and booze.
Anything you can do in Pattaya you can do better elsewhere in Thailand: elephant ride, diving, para-gliding, tasting Thai food.
The shopping is terrible.
The beach and the water are filthy.

For a female traveler in Thailand, there are so many, far more enjoyable, places to spend your travel time and money.
Why would you bother with Pattaya?

On the other hand, if you are a man, that is a very different situation.
Then I take back every word of this post.

I wasn't going to say it quite as forcefully as Peter - Pattaya isn't solely about booze and prostitution, it's a fair sized city with a hell of a lot of people simply making a non-booze non-prostitution living - but it certainly isn't a beach destination. That's what it sounds as though you're going for and there are many, many much better beach locations around Thailand.

Re: Weather

by Izzy01

The reason that i want to go there, is a friend of the family owns their own house there so we can go free of charge with just the flights to pay for. i thought it may be a good opportunity to go as it would be relatively cheap for us. do they pester you then? is it a bit of a seedy area to go then? i dont have much information about this at all im afraid!

Re: Weather

by Izzy01

I thank you all very much for your posts, maybe i will give this a miss then!! any other nice areas you all recommend?

Travel Tips for Pattaya

IT COULD BE JUST ANOTHER MALL

by travelagent4thailand about ROYAL GARDEN PLAZA

The Mall is part of the JW MARRIOTT group that operates the JW MARRIOT chain of hotels.

This mall hosts 2 small theatres, a big game arcade (top floor) with entertainment arenas of 'ripley's believe it or not', laser shooting maze, etc....

The mall also contains a large food court with other international private restuarants:...and fast food rest. as well: sizzlers, mcdonald's, au bon pain.

Shopping is not bad at all here, one will find practically all that one would find in an international standard mall...adidas, nike, nautica, boots pharmacy, etc... all the things that you may not be able to get out on the streets.

international brands...sometimes they have nig sales and private merchants such as thai handicraft, silks, etc are displayed in the galley. for all international brands, expect to pay what one would pay in BKK...

look out for the 'on sales'...great bargains.

Motor Bike

by Ah_jack

The best ways to go around pattaya and visits to the places of interest is to rent a motorbike.
Renting a motorbike for 24hrs will not costs more than 300baht or even cheaper.

you do not require any license to ride a bike there, so why not?

Mixed Seafood plate

by filipdebont about Lobster Pot

The special atmosphere, outside on the old fisherman's Warf.

A big variety on fresh seafood, from the sea on your plate. The assorted seafood plate with all different fish, lobster crabs, tiger prawns, mussels, calamari rings,. . .

(About 500 Baht for the seafood plate)

Not all that impressive

by iNorv9

We had a half-day to burn, so we decided to take the ferry out to Koh Larn. The roundtrip ticket cost about 200 baht and the journey lasted approx. 45 minutes each way. The island itself has some eroded coral, meager beaches and some gimmicky sea toys available for inflated prices. Some people tried snorkeling, but subsequently reported that they barely saw any fish. If you couldn't already tell, Koh Larn leaves a lot to be desired.

Bottom-line: Boat ride to the same below-average beaches that Pattaya has to offer.

Pattaya Beach

by earthflyer

Pattaya
Located just 145 km southeast of Bangkok, Pattaya can be visited on a day trip from the capital, although most visitors are so enchanted by the variety of things to do and see that even a week's stay doesn't seem long enough.

Colorful and alive with activity, Pattaya is unrivaled as a beach resort. It is in a class of its own, offering more attractions in greater profusion than any other single destination in Southeast Asia. Day and night, it presents an ever changing kaleidoscope of fun and thrills.

Facing a wide bay and a long majestic sweep of beach, Pattaya has been groomed over more than three decades for the international visitor, and today, it boasts the unique distinction of a beach resort with city status. Where most other resorts rely simply on their natural surroundings, Pattaya makes an all-out attempt to provide the best of everything in an exhaustive mix of facilities.

Pattaya can be whatever you want it to be. Such is its variety that it is ideal for all kinds of visitors. While there is plenty to keep the children happily occupied, there is also everything for the sports enthusiast, for couples of all ages seeking rest and relaxation, and for those who are simply looking for good times in the sun. After dark Pattaya really comes alive and the city takes on a party atmosphere which lasts until the early hours.

Pattaya's main attractions are its beaches. Pattaya Beach is situated along the central city in close proximity to shopping, hotels and bars. The over-abundance of jet-skis and speedboats has contributed to the pollution of the water along Pattaya Beach. The section of beach from Central Road (Pattaya Klang) south to the harbor is adjacent to the core of Pattaya's abundant nightlife area, hence it is less family-oriented than the North Pattaya, Na Klua and Jomtien beaches.

Most sections of the beach are covered by rented deckchairs run by local beverage vendors during daylight hours so finding an available spot of sand is rather difficult and also unadvisable due to the poor condition (dog faeces etc.) of the beach. Visitors are advised to avoid the beach after dark. Although the Beach Road itself is busy and brightly lit, some criminal elements find the unlit beach useful as a cover for their activities. The local police have started to target this area in various ongoing clampdowns.

Jomtien Beach - Pattaya
Jomtien Beach is divided from the main part of Pattaya by Pratumnak Hill, just south of the city. In contrast to Pattaya Beach, Jomtien is a popular spot for family vacationers and watersports enthusiasts. Jomtien is essentially a residential area with beachside hotels, bungalow complexes, condominiums and restaurants. A wide array of watersport activities can be found, including jet-skis, para-sailing and scuba diving. Dongtan beach, in Jomtien, is known as the gay beach, and is busy every day of the year.
