A Refreshing Discovery of Pattaya

A Refreshing Discovery
of Pattaya

Perfectly packing half a day with local experiences, fun-filled activities and seeing Pattaya’s local side.
Void of beaches, the happing places for an evening out, this discovery tour of one of
Thailand’s favourite holiday spots for a Pattaya intro.

WHY THIS TOUR?

What has put Pattaya on the tourism map is that this sunny, fun-filled destination along the Eastern side (or the sunset side) of the upper Gulf of Thailand is so diverse. Long-stretched beaches lined by a road and hotels, restaurants, cafes, shops, massage shops and other businesses are merely a stone’s throw away from more quiet beach regions such as Jomtien, Sattahip and Naklua.

These regions provide an escape when not wanting to be in the middle of it all but within a short distance of happening Pattaya is on one’s wish list. If you are eager to see what you can see beyond your beach chair or swimming pool lounger, discover the other side of this bustling tourism spot; even it is only for half a day!

Depending on your preference, you can either choose a morning or afternoon departure. We first head deeper into the province’s capital, Chonburi, to visit a local market. The way that trade takes place here has not changed much for decades; colours, smells and activity tantalize all your senses, coming from all wind directions. Your guide will explain the various ingredients, fresh fruit, vegetables and typical Thai household goods and how these find their way into any Thai household.

Pattaya’s Marine Museum houses a collection of all things living under the ocean surface off its sandy coastlines. Species of fish and coral are on display here when you are not eager to take the plunge and see what lies beneath the blue waters. From here, it is a short drive to Khao Sam Muk, better known as Monkey Cliff. Hundreds of tame, yet frequently naughty monkeys are calling this place home. These primates are permanent residents of this part of Pattaya and are protected by those people living around Monkey Cliff. Their cheeky behaviour and playfulness will result in some amazing pictures.

The day has not come yet to an end: we head to a stone cutter village, one that continues to keep the tradition alive like it has been done from generation to generation. The rocks and mountains around Pattaya are ideal sources for this ancient craft, and skilled artisans will show you the process from rough material to the final product. One of the most interesting oyster farms Thailand follows, nearby Pattaya; perhaps you may find yourself standing eye to eye with one holding a real pearl! We complete this discovery tour with heading back to your hotel where you will arrive after a relaxing but certainly fun-filled half-day out.
