Pattaya has a lot of positive things, but some unfriendly behavior and motorcycle taxis, picking, security, especially in non-tourist areas, stuck to the tourist police on motorcycles, and the problems of urban cleaning negatives in some parts of Pattaya.

We had an amazing up close experience at the zoo with our 4 and 7 year old daughters! The animals looked happy and content, the layout was great and the golf carts are awesome.

We fed some animals: hippopotamus, antelope, giraffe, rhino, etc. But the most interesting for me was Binturong (the bear cat). It's absolutely amazing!
