Enjoy Pattaya on a Budget

What was once a small fishing village has quickly developed a reputation as one of the best party hotspots in Thailand. Situated in the magnificent Gulf of Thailand, Pattaya is a city where you can expect to dance 'til dawn and spend the next day relaxing on the city's white sandy beaches. With over 800 bars in the city, Pattaya is the perfect spot for those looking to let loose and make memories, without blowing their budget.

Things to see in Pattaya

Pattaya's nightlife is the main draw for travelers, so head for the neon lights of Walking Street and take in a cabaret show—the Alcazar Cabaret is the most famous and cheap tickets can be reserved online. Experience some of the mysticism of Thailand by taking a hike through the forest to Khao Phra Tamnak, this giant golden Buddha statue stands atop a mountain and it is free to visit. Pattaya is famous for its seafood, and you can sample some local dishes such as Horseshoe Crab Som Tum at the Four Regions Floating Market. Access to the wooden platforms surrounding the market is free. Pick up some local produce and head to Jomtien Beach for a beach barbeque. If you're looking for a bargain make your way to Soi Buakhao Market where there are lots of stalls selling souvenirs, clothing and jewelry, but make sure to haggle to get the best price!

Where to stay in Pattaya

South Pattaya is the main nightlife hotspot, so if you're in Thailand to party, make sure you check out the area surrounding Walking Street for low-priced drinks and the best nightclubs in Pattaya. Staying in one of the many budget hotels in the nearby Central Pattaya Beach area is an exciting option if you want to chill out on the beach during the day, and hit the bars by night.

How to get to Pattaya

Once you've arrived in Pattaya, make like the locals and take the Songtaew—these makeshift buses have open widows and benches on either side. If you have just a short distance to cover, you can easily make your way around by foot. Bicycles can be rented very cheaply from various points around the city, and they are a fun and economical way to get from A to B.
