About Pattaya

Located on the eastern seaboard on the Gulf of Thailand, the 'festive seaside' resort of Pattaya has traditionally been a popular destination for visitors seeking beachside relaxation and the lively nightlife, particularly due to its close proximity to Bangkok. In more recent years, however, Pattaya has become a prime destination for business events.

Pattaya's economic roots lie in fishing and the area earned the designation as being a recreational centre during the Vietnam War. Current estimates are that around 9 million tourists will visit Pattaya in 2016.
