Ten Amazing Sights to See in Pattaya, Thailand

Nestled away on the eastern Gulf of Thailand, Pattaya is one of Thailand’s most majestic and fun cities to visit. With so many things to see and do, international travelers return here every year seeking adventure, sightseeing, and relaxation. Whether you choose a tour bus around the region, a Pattaya car rental, or a motorbike for some speedy city traveling, you’re guaranteed to have the time of your life. Here’s a list of ten amazing sights to see during your trip to Pattaya.

  1. Firstly, no trip to Pattaya could ever be complete without a stroll down Walking Street that stretches all the way from Beach Road to the end of the Bali Hai Plaza (around one kilometer long).  Expect hustle, bustle, and no end to nightlife entertainment and food stalls. Whether you’re with your spouse, friends, or family, this promenade truly contains something for every type of visitor!
  2. From the southern end of Walking Street you can also visit Khao Phra Tamnak, the giant golden Buddha that adorns the top of a forested hill between Jomtien and South Pattaya.
  3. If authentic Thai shopping is more your thing, then be sure to head for the Four Regions Floating Market where you’ll find traders from the four major parts of Thailand. They come here every day to showcase their food stalls, souvenirs, and magnificent art. To get a real offbeat feel for the place, you can even hire a guided boat.
  4. Renowned as one of the most iconic structure in Pattaya, the Sanctuary of Truth is also well worth a visit. Here you can admire the most meticulous carvings steeped in mythology and mysticism.
  5. Anyone with a youthful side to them will enjoy a trip to Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Gardens. Not only are these gardens magnificent and pristine, but they also features a fun zoo and an elephant show.
  6. Also a great hit with families are the many water and theme parks around Pattaya. Take a visit to the Cartoon Network Amazone or the humongous Ramayana Water Park for some high speed water slides!
  7. If you’d like to go outside the city for a bit more relaxation, then head south to Bang Sare – a fast-developing resort that has some of the most amazing restaurants and beaches in the region!
  8. Set just 16 kilometers south of Pattaya, you’ll find Anek Kusala Sala (Viharn Sien), an impressive museum that contains more than 300 pieces of artwork from local and international artists. Here’s a great chance to add a bit of culture and history to your Pattaya visit.
  9. If you’re looking to catch some of the most remarkable photo opportunities, then be sure to visit Pattaya Viewpoint on Pratumnak Hill and take in the most breathtaking views over the sweeping bay.
  10. Last but by no means least, why not bare your soul to the highest bungee jump in Thailand. Aptly called the Pattaya Bungy Jump, you’ll not only witness the most amazing views over Pattaya (albeit upside down!) but you’ll also jump an incredible 197 feet!
