and alive with activities, it is unrivalled as a beach resort,
offering more attractions in greater profusion than any other
single destination in Southeast Asia.
Located just 150 km. southeast of Bangkok and facing a wide
bay and a long majestic sweep of beach, Pattaya has been
groomed for international visitors over more than three decades,
and today it boasts the unique distinction of a beach resort with

of everything in an exhaustive mix of facilities. To the basic

other amenity one can think of for recreation, entertainment,
sightseeing and fun.
