Visiting Pattaya Thailand from Pakistan
Sixty years back, Pattaya was only known as a small fishing village located along the eastern coastline of the Gulf of Thailand. This city was previously used by USA troops and some tourists from Bangkok as a holiday destination in 1959. Their visits promoted the construction of hotels, bars and restaurants. Finally, in 1978, this village rose to the status of a city because of its popularity among international tourists and unique tourist spots.
When is the best time to visit Pattaya Thailand?
This resort city is located at a two-hour drive from Bangkok. Pattaya is especially popular among tourists as these shorelines offer a variety of exciting attractions and activities like plunging, skiing, parasailing, eateries and many more.
The climate of Pattaya is tropical in nature. The best time to visit Pattaya is from November to February as the weather during this time is very much pleased with a maximum temperature of 31°C during the day time and 22°C at night time. So, tourists mostly love to enjoy the sunshine at beaches during these months. Also, the cool breeze at night makes the beaches, roads and streets more enchanting and one can pleasantly enjoy shopping at markets. Even roaming about the streets becomes very peaceful.
The weather here is usually dry and humid from March to May but this city receives heavy monsoons from June to October. Pattaya city can be enjoyed at its best during this season because beaches are less crowded and the temperature is not very much high. In this monsoon season, tourists can enjoy many indoor visits like Central Festival, and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum of Art in Paradise Gallery and many other places.

Tourists can easily reach Pattaya by taxi, bus, train and aeroplane. U-Tapao Airport at Sattahip is 30km away from Pattaya. From this airport, you can easily hire a taxi and go straight to Pattaya but only to limited destinations there.

Travelling by taxi is the easiest and most comfortable way to reach Pattaya. Tourists should book online taxi services as it is the most convenient way. However, reaching Pattaya by Taxi is far more expensive than the bus as it costs $33.45. Tourists can also use the train to reach there but it will take up to 4 hours. Also, there is only one train that runs between Lamphong Railway Station, Bangkok and Pattaya Railway station. The train also has three levels of classes.

Ibextrails Stay at Pattaya Jomtien Beach in 2018
I stayed for three nights at Jomtien Beach Phuket which is the area behind the hill bearing a large Pattaya Sign. Jomtien Beach is relatively laid back and relaxed and not as crowded as the main street of Pattaya downtown. The local commute is quite cheap and affordable and you can hop on and off local vans that go around in a loop connecting most touristy spots in Pattaya.
I booked a room at Royal Beach View Resort located within walking distance from Jomtien Beach. This location is ideal for a family holiday. The property is very well managed and maintained with a swimming pool and large-size deluxe rooms.
In recent years there is plenty of development in this part of Pattaya with 4 to 5 Star Resorts along the beachfront. Jomtien Beach is a great place to swim or simply relax.
Visiting Koh Lan Island
Koh Lan Island is off of Pattaya Beach and is a popular location for a day trip. The ferry cost around 30 BHAT. You can charter your own boat to reach the Island in 15 minutes. If you plan to stay at the Island, a number of 2-3 star resorts are available at very affordable rates.
The best way to navigate the island is to rent a bike and explore some remote beaches. Tata Beach is located on the top end of the Island and is a great place to enjoy the clear water and splash in shallow waters. You can also hire a taxi to navigate to various parts of the Island.
