WHAT TO SEE IN PATTAYA
The vibrant coastal city of Pattaya shot to fame in the 1980s and ever since then, there has been no looking back. From dawn to dusk, the beaches of Pattaya are constantly brimming with life as the sun worshippers and sports lovers take to the water; come dark and the action shifts to the streets where revellers can take in the electrifying night scene till the wee hours of dawn.
Over the years, Pattaya has overgrown its reputation of being a shady beach town. Today it offers endless possibilities in terms of entertainment and recreation and has something for all visitors be it couples, families or business travellers.
Away from the neon lights and the beach sand, there is much that you can see and do in Pattaya from beautiful temples to rare orchid farms to other unusual sights. Book Pattaya Tour Packages
What to see and do in Pattaya
Ripley’s Believe It or Not!
The museum features more than 300 exhibits arranged in ten themed galleries. Everything you see within this gallery would change your perception of the world as you know it. The museum is located at Royal Garden Plaza on Pattaya Beach Road.
The Sanctuary of Truth
The Sanctuary of Truth is a standing tribute to Thai art and craftsmanship. The monument reflects a fusion of religion, philosophy, art and culture and is built entirely of wood. It is neither a palace nor a temple but the impressive sculptures reflect the belief of the ‘Ancient Vision of earth’, ‘Ancient Knowledge,’ and ‘Eastern Philosophy’.
Pattaya Floating Market
Spread across an area of 100,000sqm, the Four Regions Floating Market is divided into different sections with each section representing and selling items from the major parts of Thailand (north, northeast, central and south). A cultural show takes place in the afternoon. Besides shopping, you can also stroll past the quaint wooden houses or hire a boat and enjoy a float on the river.
Khao Kheow Open Zoo
Kaha Kheow is more of a research and wildlife conservation centre than a zoo in the traditional sense of the word. Over 8000 species of animals roam free in a habitat that has been designed to resemble their natural environment and you can view them up and close from your car or in the zoo’s tram.
It takes only two hours to see the world’s wonders in Mini Siam. This open-air museum has replicas to exact dimensions of more than 100 sites such as the Temple of Emerald Buddha and the Statue of Liberty.
