is unrivaled as a beach resort. It is in a class of its own, offering
more attractions in greater profusion than any other single destination
in Southeast Asia. Day and night, it presents an ever changing kaleidoscope
of fun and thrills.
a wide bay and a long majestic sweep of beach, Pattaya has been groomed
over more than three decades for the international visitor, and today,
it boasts the unique distinction of a beach resort with city status. Where
most other resorts rely simply on their natural surroundings, Pattaya
makes an all-out attempt to provide the best of everything in an exhaustive
mix of facilities.

is ideal for all kinds of visitors. While there is plenty to keep the
children happily occupied, there is also everything for the sports enthusiast,
for couples of all ages seeking rest and relaxation, and for those who
are simply looking for good times in the sun.
