Party in Pattaya: 1 Week in Thailand
If you want to experience beach life in Thailand but don’t have time to travel to the other famous locations such as Phuket, Koh Samui, or Krabi Islands. Well, Pattaya is perfect for you. It is only 2 hours away from Bangkok.
I only had about a week to spend in Thailand and I wanted to experience both city, province, and beach so I came up with this 1 week itinerary to experience them all.
If you are looking for an eye-popping experience in your life then Pattaya is the place you must visit. The beach, watersports, nightlife, the famous ladyboys, and beautiful girls as well are just some of the things Pattaya can offer to you.
The Best Time to Visit Pattaya
Of course, you’d want to avoid the rainy season which usually starts around May to October. The dry, cool season in Thailand starts around November to April. Anywhere in those months should be pleasant for exploring, sightseeing, and doing various beach activities.
How to Get To Pattaya from Bangkok
From Bangkok, head to the Ekkimai Bus Station. It is just located right next to Ekkimai BTS. Alternatively, you can get a ride from the A1 Shuttle Bus and go to Mo Chit station and purchase your Bus Ticket to Pattaya. But if you are looking for a hassle-free trip and don’t want to stress yourself from finding these stations, you may book a bus ticket from 12go.asia here.

Where to Stay in Pattaya
There are various hostels, motels, and beach hotels in Pattaya. But you would want to book on a beachfront to get the best of the experience so make sure to stay within Pattaya Beach Road. I personally stayed in an affordable private hostel called Pump Station that cost about 1000 baht or Php 1500 per night.
