When people think of Pattaya, the first thing that comes to mind is risqué shows, ladyboys or crowded tourist spots. However, this isn’t even a fraction of what the city has to offer. If you are going to Pattaya on a corporate golf trip, there is sure to be some time in your itinerary when you aren’t hitting the greens. And if you are adventurous and enthusiastic enough to look around and travel a bit, you will find that there are a number of places to visit and activities to indulge in. Here are just some of the things you can do while you are in Pattaya:
#1 Walking Street
This place is amazing to say the least; this mile long street is shut down for vehicular traffic from late evening to the early hours of the morning. It’s choc-a-bloc with restaurants, beer bars, pubs, go-go bars, nightclubs and more. Here you will get to see and experience the vibrancy and colour of Pattaya’s night life.
#2 Floating Market
Thailand has a number of floating markets, but the one situated in Pattaya is unique in many ways. Its name is actually – ‘Four Regions Floating Market’ and its segregated into 4 regions of the country – Central, South, Northeast and the North. Each of these sections sells a variety of products that are specific to that respective region. There are many floating stalls as well as boats moving around in the canals, selling different wares.
#3 Art In Paradise Gallery
This is an extraordinary art gallery filled with optical illusion displays and other clever tricks. There are 10 different sections within the building and in excess of 100 pieces of art. There is something fun for both kids and adults at this art museum.
#4 Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!
This is another museum that’s unique in every way. It is divided into 10 distinct subject areas and has more than 100 items. You can also explore the 4D Moving Theatre and Tussauds Wax Works and a number of other things to see and do.
#5 Wat Phra Khao Yai
This is also referred to as Big Buddha Hill. At 18 meters in height, the idol here is the tallest Buddha in this region. What makes the idol look even more impressive is the fact that it is positioned around 100 meters above sea level. Once you reach the summit of the hill, you can get a breathtaking view of Jomtein Beach and Pattaya city.
#6 Ziplining At Flight Of The Gibbon
