Holidays in Pattaya, Thailand offer a range of sights, sounds and tastes to feast on. From glorious golf courses to delicious food and fun filled water parks, Pattaya is a brilliant experience for the whole family.

Perfect for a winter getaway from November to March, you can enjoy the vibrant Jomtien night market which offers colourful local fare. Alternatively, experience the famous Four Regions Floating Market for a slice of life in the region. Easily accessible from Bangkok, holidays in Pattaya offer the ideal opportunity to relax on the manicured golf courses. Families will love the choice of three water parks, as well as a selection of family friendly hotels and restaurants. There’s something here for everybody.

Pattaya City Holidays offer fun for the family

Thailand’s tropical beaches and gorgeous weather make it an excellent destination. If you’re looking to visit the Bangkok metropolis, Pattaya offers a change in pace but still provides activities and entertainment combined with the idyllic Thailand setting.

Choose from a number of stunning beachside Pattaya resorts, where you can enjoy the sea breeze and sun, with a choice of swimming pools or the beach. If you’re looking to do a spot of shopping, there are modern malls for you to browse, and the floating market is easily accessible - with great souvenirs available to remember your trip.

In the evenings, you’ll never be bored. There’s a buzzing nightlife in the city, as well as the Jomtien Beach Night Market where you can feast on delicious local cuisine at affordable prices. We also recommend exploring the cultural side of Pattaya City, with its numerous temples and ‘The Sanctuary of Truth’. With Buddhist and Hindu motifs, this all-wooden building has beautiful, delicate hand carvings. There is also Wat Phra Yai Temple nearby, featuring an 18m golden Buddha.

Pattaya City holidays offer visitors an excellent choice of activities, food and drink and cultural exploration, whether holidaying as a family or as a couple. Enjoy a Pattaya multicentre holiday and combine this beautiful area with thriving Bangkok city or some of Thailand’s rural islands.

Pattaya appeals to the young and care-free who are looking for crazy nightlife, but it is also becoming a terrific place to bring the family with it's many fun activities and attractions to try. This really is a resort where you will find it impossible to ever feel bored. Pattaya is a great destination for anyone who loves shopping. There are modern malls, colourful markets and even a vibrant floating market if you are looking for an authentic Thai experience. There is a cultural side to Pattaya too – with numerous temples to explore. We would recommend a visit to “The Sanctuary of Truth”. This is an amazing wooden building right on the beach in the northern part of Pattaya. The building has been under construction now for more than 20 years, and all the delicate carvings are done by hand.

Resort Golf

Golf in Pattaya

With over 20 courses to choose from, Pattaya is one of the most diverse areas for playing golf in Thailand. Here you can play on sublime courses at a fraction of the cost of other destinations; with each course offering a fantastic experience for golfers of all abilities.

Laem Chabang Golf Club is a picturesque Jack Nicklaus designed championship course, and is probably the most well-known one in the area.

“When you are in Pattaya - make time to visit the floating market. It's the largest one in Thailand, and is such a fun way to get your souvenirs. It's really easy and affordable to get there - expect to pay around THB 200 (about £5) in a taxi.”
