There was a time when Thailand was considered a destination for those who cannot afford traveling to more expensive destinations. However, the image of Thailand rapidly changed in the past two decades as the government emphasized on tourism development. The country saw huge events of exotic islands, pristine beaches, exciting tours deep into nature, adventure sports, luxurious resorts and hotels, and top-notch shopping and food options. The popularity of the country as a tourist hotspot increased multifold as it became one of the favorite film shooting location for many Hollywood movies.
One of the most famous towns of Thailand is Pattaya, which was among the first developed beach strips of the country. The city located at a roughly 3-hour drive from the capital was initially a fishing village that was later developed into a full-fledged beach strip with shops, eateries and other tourist attractions. Although Pattaya managed to attract a lot of foreign investment and attraction regarding hotel chains, food chains, etc., it still maintained a notorious reputation, and most family travelers or sight-seeing enthusiasts preferred checking it off the list. Today, Pattaya is back with a bang and has a lot to offer for everyone regarding amusement and attractions. However, it is still one of the most underrated towns in the country when it comes to Sightseeing. Sightseeing in Pattaya is, in fact, one of the best and the most exhilarating experience that you can have. Here are a few interesting options that you would not want to miss out.
