Can not remember the name of it, but was clean and they did speak little English, so was happy with the service. Had eyebrows and eyeliner done for the... More

Wow, how sad is that, Pattaya is so full of old male sex tourists that you can't have a joke or muck around with the local kids without being seen as some type of pervert! So so different than Vietnam.

If just want to kick it for a bit between the hotel and the walking street this is a great little place. Yummy finger food and beer served to you, just lift a finger and whip out some baht. Costs to sit down on deckchairs and it can be busy. Not somewhere I would swim though as there is zero... More

First impression of the North End of Pattaya beach was one of complete sadness - this was not what I was expecting at all however I'd only recently arrived after a long flight from the UK and decided to make a more rational judgment after a good nights' sleep! Next day it did look a little better and it does... More

We were very disappointed with the beach. There is no private space to put down a towel. The small strip is completely taken up with lounge chairs and umbrellas which are for rent. Between the lounge chairs and the shoreline is hardly enough space to walk and everywhere is a smell of gasoline from the jerrycans for the motor boats.... More

We spent 05 days at pattaya. My family was mad about pattaya beach. It was clean, less of hawkers, very friendly locals..and enjoyed the famous Thai fruits..melon, rose apple, coconut, pineapples...ohh...great sweet taste.more so at the evening it was great to walk along the beach. My kids liked it much.
