Good Points about Pattaya
There are several reasons for Pattaya’s popularity. One reason is that the city is close to Bangkok, which makes it popular with Thai tourists wanting a break from Bangkok, and also accessible to Asian tourists on shorter breaks.
The city also has several beaches, some better than others, and a really diverse range of activities on offer, restaurants serving up many different types of food, and lots of value for money hotels to suit nearly all budgets. In addition the city has lots of shopping outlets.
Children will enjoy the city’s two large water parks, and its zoos and aquariums.
Everyone from single men wanting to visit Go-Go bars, to extended families from the middle east, choose to come to Pattaya because it has something desirable to offer. The people Pattaya tends not to attract, however, are independent travellers looking for cultural experiences.

The city has a large semi-permanent ex-pat community a significant proportion of which are commonly associated with crime and anti-social behaviour. The city also attracts domestic criminals looking to take advantage of visitors, particularly those who decide to become customers in the city’s sex industry or buy hard drugs.
Staying Safe in Pattaya
You can stay clear of anti-social behaviour and crime by simply avoiding certain areas, such as the infamous Walking Street in South Pattaya and Soi Yodsak in Central Pattaya. Like many large cities some areas are safer than others.
Also, never get into a shouting argument with a local taxi or tuk-tuk driver, or indeed anyone else. These types of situations often result in violence.
