Here often go on a cheap tour and nightlife. But due to the large number of infrastructure and entertainment come here specifically families with children and independent travelers. From the airport in Bangkok can be reached in 3 hours. It is here that the famous “Walking Street” is located, although Patong in Phuket is not much inferior to Pattaya in this regard. The resort is one of the cheapest in Thailand, so there are a lot of tourists during the season. The beaches are not very beautiful and dirty, so it is best to swim on the small island of Koh Lan (30 minutes by ferry) or out of town, for example, to the Military Beach. Some winterers also prefer to live in Pattaya, because of the prices, the large circle of communication, the infrastructure concentrated in one city. You can live on the outskirts of the city (the end of Jomtien Beach, Na-Jomtien Beach, behind Sukhumvit), then the noise and a large number of people will not disturb you.
