Hotels in Pattaya
Originally a small fishing village on the sea, Pattaya has developed significantly since the U.S. military established a base there during the Vietnam War. These days, Pattaya is a popular getaway in Thailand for people who crave the thrills of both nightlife and water sports.
The majority of people traveling to Pattaya will arrive via Don Mueang International Airport (DMK) or Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK) in Bangkok. There is a direct bus to Pattaya from Suvarnabhumi Airport. Buses also frequently leave from Ekkamai and Mo Chit bus stations in Bangkok. The trip takes about three hours. U-Tapao International Airport (UTP) in Pattaya provides domestic flights from Phuket and Koh Samui. Metered taxis are available across the city.
