After landing at local U-Tapao International Airport (UTP) or nearby Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK), it's time to start your holiday! Pick up one of Wotif’s great Pattaya car hire deals and get ready to see the sights. Culturally minded travellers can begin with a stop at the Sanctuary of Truth, an intricately carved monument built entirely of wood (don’t worry, you won’t have to tell anyone your secrets). Then make the trek to the top of Khao Phra Tamnak hill and find your Zen in the shadow of the massive golden Buddha. Prefer the sun? Relax on any of the five beaches of Hat Ko Lan Island, which you can reach via a ferry that departs five times a day from Bali Hai pier. Want something a little more action-packed? Embark on an elephant ride and jungle trek, engage in a high-flying zip line tour or visit any of the city's three go-kart tracks.
The Central Festival mall is the definitive place to shop on any holiday to Pattaya. As the biggest mall in the area, it offers everything from fashion outlets to beauty boutiques to plenty of eateries, and its variety draws shoppers of all types off of bustling Beach Road. The numerous markets located all over the city provide a more traditional experience—haggling included! You’ll feel like you’re living in a postcard at the Four Regions Floating Market, where vendors sell fruit, souvenirs and art from houses on stilts, and you can even rent a boat to explore the waterways.
When it comes to dining, travellers whose Thailand holidays take them to Pattaya won't have to worry about going hungry. Food carts and mobile vendors peddling fruit and coffee abound. Looking for Thai cuisine from the northeastern Isaan region? (If not, you should be!) Pattaya is filled with people from the Chonburi province, and you'll discover enjoyable regional dishes such as hot papaya salad and minced-meat salad. There are even Finnish, Italian, Austrian, British and American restaurants scattered here and there for some international flavour.
The dining is delicious, but where Pattaya really shines is its nightlife. There is entertainment all over the city, from open-air beer gardens to karaoke joints to go-go bars (no cameras, under penalty of ejection!). Walking Street features the highest concentration of both types, as well as a few clubs.
Pattaya holiday packages can offer you the rest and relaxation you need, and with Wotif, you’ll always get a great deal. Finding your getaway is almost easy as sunbathing on the beach or enjoying a cold pint. Why wait? Book your own holiday to Pattaya today!
It's time for you to step out of your comfort zone and have a go at something new. After all, isn't that what travel is about?
