Not only marine sports but shopping and other entertainments are attracting tourists from all over the world. The U.S soldiers also visited Pattaya as a getaway during the Vietnam War. Pattaya is located about 1 hour by taxi and 2 and half hours by bus from Bangkok. The area of Pattaya is about 22 km2, and the population is about 100 thousand.

Pattaya Overview

Since Pattaya is only known as a resort area, tourism and service industry support Pattaya's economy. Along with the development of the tourism industry, hotels and restaurants are built, and there are about 40,000 registered hotel rooms offered in Pattaya. Moreover, due to the influence of tourism industry, the population of the city has been increasing by 3% annually on average. However, excessive concentration of tourists caused serious pollution problems, and "Pattaya special municipal law" was established to preserve the beautiful ocean.

Night time in Pattaya is also one of the allurements for tourists. While night entertainment is prosperous, prostitution has been a problem.
