Thailand: Pattaya Part 3

Pattaya central beach and entertainment hub

After hours of unpacking, its time for us to head out to the beach. There are a total of 6 beaches in Pattaya - Na Klua Beach, Wong Amat Beach, Pattaya Beach, Dong Tan Beach, Jomtien Beach and Na Jomtien Beach. The only beach i been to is the Pattaya beach. However if you like to seek a more quiet and secluded spot i recommend Jomtien Beach and Na Jomtien Beach which is 3 to 4 Km south of Pattaya city.

For your info the beach benches are not free seating. You have to order food or beverages.

Evening is the perfect time if you want to catch some beautiful sight of Pattaya beach

Pattaya beach, the most crowded beach of all in Pattaya, is divided into the north, central and south zones. Our hotel is located near the north zone so is pretty far if you take a walk all the way to the south, is quite a nice feeling though. Many pubs, restaurants, shopping complex and hotels are located along the Pattaya beach which most of times i prefer walking along there instead of hopping onto the Songthaew (pick-taxi).

Is pretty quiet outside in the daytime but when night falls, an army of tourists will just flood the street especially in Walking Street, the famous street of entertainment, clubs and pubs. Not many tourists were there for the view or recreational purpose, most came for personal pleasure if you know what i mean. So if you planning on coming here, do bring condoms in case your appetite go beyond photo-taking and beach activities.

Pattaya Hill

Pattaya Hill is a vantage point to get the best panoramic view of the curved bay of Pattaya either in the day or at night. Is located south of Pattaya beach, right after Walking Street.

Me and a Thai friend whom i met in Bangkok

On the top of the hill you would find a statue of HRH Prince of Jumborn, the father of the Royal Thai Navy and the RTN Broadcasting station.
Below are some few shots which i took at the hill.
