4 Things that You Should Know About Pattaya
Located towards the Eastern coast of the Thailand gulf, Pattaya has always enjoyed the notorious reputation of being the undisputed sex capital in the world. Every year Pattaya receives thousands of tourists, mostly bachelors that come to the city to enjoy dozens of activities and one of the most happening nigh life spots in the worlds.
Pattaya initially started off as a fishing village east of the Thai capital. Over the years it has become a tourist magnet with luxury beach resorts dotting the coral beach of the town. The town is one of the most tourist oriented destinations in the world where you will not only find bachelors who make a stop over in Pattaya because they cannot go to a more far flung island due to time and budget constraints but will also find families with kids. You can easily find many tours in Pattaya that will offer kids friendly activities. If you are planning to head to Pattaya on your next trip to Thailand, here are 5 things that you need to know about this bustling beautiful town.
- Pattaya is NOT All About Sex
In order to be able to enjoy the real essence of this beautiful town close to the capital, you need to bust the myth that Pattaya is the place dedicated for people looking some casual flings. As a matter of fact, Pattaya has so many activities to offer that has zero connection with anything even remotely associated with sex. Many tourists who come to Thailand with families are reluctant to visit Pattaya because of all the notoriety that is associated with it. If you are one of those travelers, say good bye to all your apprehensions and visit Pattaya with your wife and kids and you will not regret it one bit.
- The Best Waterparks
If you are a fan of water parks, you will fall in love with Pattaya instantaneously. Other than the wide range of water sports available across the Pattaya beach, Pattaya is a home to some of the most exciting water parks in Thailand. The Cartoon Network Amazon Park is one of the latest additions to the amusement and water park scene of Pattaya. This is the world’s first Cartoon Network themed water park with some of the most exciting attractions for both kids and adults.
- The Coral Island
If the noisy bad crowded streets of Pattaya are way too much for you to absorb, hop on to a long tail boat or a speed boat and head towards the coral island. Located west of Pattaya, Coral island is a stretch of a clear pristine beach and crystal blue waters. Unlike the Pattaya beach, Coral island is much more secluded and allows you to enjoy a calm retreat away from the noise and crowd that is signature to Pattaya.
- Ripley’s Believe It or Not
This is another fun attraction located towards the south of Pattaya. Inspired by the famous international show called Ripley’s Believe It or Not, this mind gobbling museum will take you on a journey of some of the most shocking facts of life.
