pattaya Travel Guide , thailand

Looking to go for an international holiday on a reasonable budget? For years this remained a quandary for travellers, but over the last few years, destinations further down south, in South East Asia, like Bangkok, Thailand, Pattaya, Phuket, etc. have developed and have become primary choices for many sightseers and travellers.

  Yet exploring foreign land all on your own, is formidable to say the least, and as such it is beneficial to get Guided tour of Pattaya, to not only save time and energy, but also get the maximum possible amount of fun and be able to make as many memories as possible. While agreeably it is an adventure, yet a guided tour of Pattaya, is probably the most sensible way to have genuine fun, at this exotic destination, especially given the amount of sites, beaches and tourist spots the island houses. Such tours manage to take us to the best places to visit in Pattaya.

  Here is a short elementary Pattaya tour guide which includes the best tourist spots which you cannot miss at all while on your sojourn to this mystical land. This Pattaya travel guide shall always be handy for planning your holidays whether you come once or more than once in the lifetime.  Let’s check the places to see in Pattaya -

●  Beaches - If you enjoy the tide, love the surf and enjoy the flow of the breeze from the seas, then the very first place to visit here is the Koh Lan beach. It is open tourist beach, great for fishing spots and exotic sea food. With tours to Koh Larn and Koh Sichang is not very far behind in terms of popularity. One of the most recommended places by visitors and residents is the beautiful Coral Island.

  ●  Theme parks - Recognizing how much children (and even adults) from all over the world enjoy, both, theme parks and cartoons, the Pattaya tour packages definitely include such sites in their deals. Pattaya has several parks to lead its tourist to a different world in the city. Based on the Cartoons and the Ramayana, this theme-based water parks, not only surprises the kids but also develops an interest in them, to learn amazing facts about their favorite cartoon as well as about the mythology, too.

  ●  Sanctuary of truth - The Sanctuary of Truth is an architectural and scientific marvel. The sanctuary of truth, intricately carved out of teak wood stands at a proud height of 105 metres, and indeed is probably one of the most imposing structures on this resort island. This structure is a humbling reminder of the difference between material and non material pleasures, of life.

● Tiffany cabaret show - As the name tells us, this is a form of live performance, but so meticulous, are the dresses, from elaborate ball gowns to flying feather plumes, from extravagant head-dresses to perfect music, to polka dot swim-wear. One does get an idea of the opulence of what he is about to witness, as soon as one enters into the huge and cavernous, faux-marble lobby, the artists (mostly lady boys) here present scenes from the British Indian raj, a Korean fan dance, a show on Chinese history to western slap stick, etc, under the exquisite lights, the visits finds all the entertain but looses himself in these stories.

●  Nong Nooch Tropical Garden – The garden is spread over 2.4 sq. kms. It acts as a home to the most exquisite flowers, displays and houses the finest landscaping (probably in the world). The botanical park houses the renaissance garden, the French garden, the Stonehenge garden. The specific gardens include the bonsai, the topiary, the orchid and the cactus gardens. As dusk falls, the garden presents daily shows at the Thai Cultural Hall often presenting the traditional dance as it’s subject to please the audience.

● Pattaya Floating Market - Not dissimilar to the floating market on Dal lake in Kashmir, this 100,000 sq. km, area is divided into the four major parts, of Thailand (The north, the northeast, the central and the south). There is a cultural show organized here, every afternoon, along with stalls for eateries, fruit and vegetables. You can find fine restaurants nearby, all catering to the tourists.

●  Big Buddha Hill - Officially called (Wat Phra Khao Yai), the hill houses some of the best Buddhist craftsmanship, in one of its most picturesque location in Pattaya located on the peak of the hill. A huge Buddha statue looks over the city, on the way to and around the top, we find Buddha in different poses (meditating, smiling, standing etc), a sense of inbred calm infuses the place, a visit to the big Buddha statue is the cultural activity of a trip here, not only for tourists, even for its commoners.

●  Pattaya View Point- As the name suggests, this one is a vantage point for anyone who wants to see the sea side city, in all its glory. The Khao Pattaya View Point offers a crescent view of the bay from Pattaya Beach. It features on one side the Nakula Beach on the other side - the floating markets located in between, interspersed with multi storied buildings; it is indeed a sight to behold.

To find locations properly when you are in city, you can simply refer to a Google map of Pattaya. The guided tour of Pattaya is probably the best way one can cover this beautiful and calm city. The best time to visit in Pattaya to spend a pleasant vacation is during winters or autumn that is between the months November to April. In summers, the rains may impact the sight-seeing and you might not enjoy the best experiences.

A common curiosity of many travellers is how to reach Pattaya? Well, it is at a distance of merely 120 kilometres from the ‘Suvarnabhumi’ airport at Bangkok, and the route boasts of a beautiful drive too. So, if you are looking for a relaxing and calm place for your next holidays, whether alone or with someone, you will not regret trying holidays in Pattaya!
