How to get back to the Airport or Bangkok
Time to go home. How do you get out of this town? Here is the secret.
All of those taxi's drivers that deliver tourists to Pattaya all want to go back to their homes in Bangkok, even better if they can get a customer to pay their way back. Well, that's what they do. When they arrive in Pattaya they check in with local agencies that look for customers for them and get a commission for their work.
As you walk down Second road you will see signs advertising taxis to Bangkok or BKK for 800 to 1200 Bhat. These are the street agents for the agencies that line up the taxis. Just walk up and tell them where you want to meet your driver. They will pick you up at your hotel at whatever hour of the day or night you wish. Make your arrangements and get a receipt Make sure you understand what you purchased, who pays tolls and will they take the motorway. At the requested time your taxi will arrive. Make sure you have your receipt!
On the Third Floor of the Royal Garden Plaza (a big shopping centre), you find Food Land.
Food Land is a place with different food stalls which are all serving local Thai food.
It is great to try some local food, at very cheap prices.
There is always a great atmosphere as the clients are a mixture of Thai people and tourists. Fried Noodles with shrimps (or with chicken, or porc) (35 - 55 Baht)
GO-GO WALKING STREET
Staying in a hotel in the Southern part of Pattaya the WALKING STREET was just around the corner. You're supposed to go for a walk here, don't you? Well, go for a sexy walk then! You'll be surprised how Thai people bring their kids and show them how the sometimes very young babydoll-girls pose in the Go-go bars to impress passing tourists. The kids love it and imitate the Go-go girls ...
It's worth remembering that sex tourism is a booming industry in Pattaya. The locals do not mind, the authorities connives at the same time, as long as the "farang" or Westen sex tourists do come and, enjoy with a lot of pleasure in this self-styled, semipedestrianised meeting zone.
Pattaya - A great destination in Thailand
Pattaya is of course one of Thailand's most famous destinations. The mistake so many people makes is that there is just so much more to the Pattaya than the busy city are. The central area of pattaya is certainly busy with shops, restaurants, bars and nightlife, but those restaurants include some superb Pattaya restaurant, entertainment ranges from small bars to exccellent night spots. The main beach is a city beach, so don't expect too much, but north and south of the City area are beaches such as Naklua to the north and Jomtien beach to the south. Go beyond Jomtien and you can find some lovely quiet beach hotels and resorts.
There are the fabulous Vegas style shows at Tiffany's and Alcazar, and the amazing Alangkarn Show. Underwaterworld, Ripley's Believe it or Not, day trips to Koh Larn Island and just so much more. Certainly there is a great deal more to Pattaya than simply entertainment.
Pattaya has a huge choice of hotels ranging from budget Pattaya hotels to top luxury Pattaya hotels. There are also small hotels and boutique hotels in Pattaya. Overall Pattaya hotel rates are cheap and overall you get excellent value for money even from the inexpensive hotels in Pattaya.
Pattaya also has luxury hotels and resorts including the famous Dusit resort Pattaya, the Marriott resort Pattaya, the Pattaya Sheraton. The Hard Rock Hotel is justly famous as a great place to stay in Pattaya. There are also countless holiday and vacation hotels, the Ambassador City at Jomtien is claimed to be the world's largest hotel, well at least one of the largest.
I have always had good service from hotels in Pattaya and so whatever your hotel budget you are certain to find a great choice of resorts and hotels in Pattaya Thailand.
Pattaya is a large city, is is not a small place ! There is a beach that runs along the front of Pattaya and there are also beaches both north and south of the busy central area of Pattaya.
