How to get from Bangkok to Pattaya
Thailand, a picturesque, alluring and delightful country, annually attracts millions of tourists, including our compatriots. It offers a range of relaxation activities to suit all tastes: hiking in the jungle, expeditions through the tunnels of underground caves, climbing mountains, rafting along seething mountain rivers, and excursions to preserved ancient temples and to the ancient ruins of Siam shrines.
And still, relaxing on the picturesque beaches of the Gulf of Thailand is the most popular among guests arriving in the Kingdom of Thailand.
In this sense, the city of Pattaya, located southeast of the capital, is the most attractive for visitors. The distance from Bangkok to Pattaya is a little more than 140 km.
The small fishing village of Pattaya became famous and turned into a popular resort due to the fact that it was chosen by American military sailors for their holidays back in the 60s
Pattaya includes kilometers of sandy beaches, the gentle sea, the diversity of marine flora and fauna, unforgettable diving, water skiing on water scooters, banana boat ride and catamaran tours, boat and yacht trips, as well as fun pastimes in modern water parks on the coast.
The main advantage of the resort is that a large number of sights are concentrated both in the city itself and in its environs:
- ancient temples,
- mountains, mountain rivers, waterfalls, caves,
- gardens and parks that amaze with their magnificence,
- zoos, dolphinariums, amusement parks and much more.
Here you can do bungee jumping ride, flying over the impenetrable jungle that swarms with life, jump on an elastic band from a bridge or waterfall, make a parachute jump, arrange ATV or bike races.
Pattaya’s main peculiarity is that due to its favorable location in the Gulf of Thailand the possibility of a tsunami is excluded here, which means that the vacation promises to be meaningful and unruffled
