Been to Pattaya on numerous occasions but i think its time to give it a miss although its still got fantastic beaches with a good welcome from the deck chair hire people who serve you with all manner of drinks and food all at reasonable prices but the resort is slowly being over taken by Russian tourists who on the whole are ok just like any other country has its ignorant individuals i found most of the Russians are only putting money in the pockets of chain supermarkets 7/11 or Family Mart by buying bottles of spirits and a mixer and either sitting on the roadside or even sitting at a roadside bar and using there glasses and not buying a drink from them i even witnessed one Russian woman come out of Family Mart supermarket in Walking street with a bottle of wine with 2 straws so the thai locals are losing out big time.

I`ve been to Pattaya several times but the beach never was inviting enough for me to take a dip. If you go there in high season the beach walk is overtaken by street vendors stretching tarps above their head at around 180cm high and if you taller than that it can be frustrating. The beach is full of dirty sunbeds leaving no space for anyone else. People trying to sell you everything from sunglasses , drinks to massage .Last time I was there in September it was a big construction site , being repaved the full length.If you want a nice beach you can always go to Koh Larn island , cheap ferries will take you there in roughly one hour journey. The ferries start form the end of walking street , it can not be missed ! Its a great day out if you feel like Pattaya is a little too much for the stomach..

The beach is overcrowded. The beach area seems very small. While I was there I have not found too many young people over there. Mostly senior citizens and retired people were there and having message. I also took message and it was relaxing. It could be cleaner.
