One of the most vibrant, lively and energetic tourist spots in Thailand, the seaside resort of Pattaya has established itself as a must-see location in South-East Asia. Holidays in Pattaya boast tropical beaches, fun-loving attractions and an invigorating nightlife scene with plenty of places to eat, drink and shop; making it a top beach holiday location for families, friends, couples and solo travellers. Spend time on the sun-kissed bay of Pattaya, the largest beach in the resort, where you can spend hours in the shimmering water enjoying jet-skis, parasailing, and diving amid multi-coloured coral reefs and wrecks. If you have the kids in tow, take them to explore Mini Siam, which houses miniature versions of Thailand’s iconic landmarks, or visit The Elephant Village where you can spend time with the orphaned animals in their natural habitat.
Pattaya holidays can be as laid-back or lively as you wish, with the option to sail over to castaway islands such as Koh Larn and Koh Sak - where bliss is at its best - or head for the hustle and bustle of Walking Street, the city’s hotspot for nightlife and entertainment. Better still, if you fancy a twin-centre holiday, the buzzing capital of Bangkok is just two hours away, with the cheapest commute via bus. Browse our cheap flights and hotels to Pattaya and plan your visit between the months of December and May, once the wet season has passed and the weather is hot.
