6 Reasons to Visit Pattaya for Your Next Travel Destination - It's Time to Explore Pattaya

Are you planning your next vacation? Are you trying to decide between sandy beaches, culture and nightlife? The good news is that you do not need to choose; Pattaya offers all this and much more!


Stroll Down Walking Street

This pedestrian street, which has the somewhat obvious name of Walking Street, is unparalleled in the whole of Thailand. What it offers is close to one kilometre of unadulterated entertainment and the perfect place for a night out in Pattaya. The street is filled with nightclubs, restaurants, go-go bars and beer bars as it caters to every taste. It is a truth universally acknowledged that you could spend every night of your Pattaya stay and keep discovering new places. If you are staying at a Pattaya beach resort such as the AVANI Pattaya Resort & Spa, you are within walking distance of Walking Street.


Nong Nooch Tropical Garden and Cultural Village

Nong Nooch Tropical Garden is a 2.4 square kilometer landscaped park which offers as much entertainment as a theme park! Restaurants and cultural shows are interspersed with the individually themed gardens offered by Nong Nooch. Whether you simply enjoy the aesthetic beauty of meticulously manicured gardens or a plant enthusiast, this place has much to offer. Nong Nooch's orchid nurseries alone are home to more than 670 native species and make up the largest collection in the whole of Thailand! One feature that cannot be missed is the elevated walkway which takes you on a 1.1 kilometre walk through some of the main gardens at Nong Nooch. You will find yourself easily spending a day here.


Visit a Cabaret

Cabaret shows are rife in Pattaya and if you want to spend your evening being dazzled with colours and remarkably choreographed dances, your concierge can recommend good ones in the area. The multicultural offerings of cabarets include Thai dances, burlesque choreography, some of Broadway's best tunes and more. The lavish sets and the enthusiasm of the dancers are bound to ensure a wonderful evening for all!


The Sanctuary of Truth

This beautifully constructed teak structure is dedicated as a sanctuary to philosophical truth. This visually striking complex is a tribute to Thai craftsmanship. Visitors can spend hours inspecting the detailed carvings depicting scenes from mythology and real life. As the wood has not been chemically treated, the building is constantly being updated since its inception in 1981. Interestingly, sword fighting re-enactments and some souvenir stalls are also available on the grounds of the Sanctuary of Truth.


Enjoy Pattaya's Beaches

Pattaya has many beaches offering stretches of white sand. Bang Saen Beach and Koh Larn Beach are havens for lovers and those in search of peace; ideal places to escape the hustle and bustle of cities. Thrill seekers on the hunt for water sports would prefer to spend time at Pattaya Beach where they can parasail, jet ski and ride banana boats to your heart's content. Those with younger family members in tow would enjoy the family friendly Wong Amat Beach.


Splash Around at a Waterpark

The younger members of the family will be thrilled to learn that Pattaya has many water parks. They have something to offer everyone from hair raising high speed slides to the gentle relaxation offered by wave pools. Ramayana Water Park is one of the several waterparks in Pattaya and it is a unique as it is based on a mythological theme which is one of the largest water parks in Thailand.
