Attractions

Pattaya Floating Market

Although Pattaya floating market is a new built market opened to the public in November 2008. But it is built in the traditional way. Most of the shops are made of wood. In Thai language this market is called "Talad Nam Si Pak". It means four region floating market. And like its name, this floating market is divided in 4 part, which represents the 4 regions of Thailand; Northern-, Southern-, Central- and North-Eastern (Isan) region. In each part you will find the famous products of that region. Most products here are handmade. In addition to the products and foods that you can buy here, there are special shows like Coconut-Shell Dance, Dance of the Colorful Torches, North Dance and Kalasin Beauty Dance. Each dance represents its Region. But what I think is the highlight of this place is the sea boxing show. It is really exciting and many of you will like it, especially the male ones.

Pattaya Beach

Pattaya Beach is parallel to the city centre and stretches from South Pattaya up to the famous walking street. Along the Beach Road are value-for-money shopping malls and market stalls, a huge variety of restaurants, endless sports and leisure activities, and of course, the bars and nightclubs.
