Choosing the Best Place to Stay in Pattaya
Before choosing where to stay in Pattaya it pays to be aware that not all parts of town are ideal to stay in. The city is spread over a large area with much of it being well away from the tourist activities so some care needs to be taken when picking a hotel or you might find you have to negotiate major traffic congestion on a daily basis.
For people who like to spend most of their time relaxing around their resort’s pool this won’t be such a problem and staying “off the beaten track” can be a good way to get higher quality for less money but, for most people, being within easy reach of the beach and nightlife will probably make their Pattaya holiday a lot more enjoyable.
When it comes to choosing one of Pattaya's hotels everyone will have their own criteria. Some may want to stay as close to the nightlife as possible while others will place a higher priority on getting a good night’s sleep and prefer quieter locations. Fortunately, there’s a good choice of locales in the main tourist district that will cater for most tastes. This guide describes the most popular of these along with some carefully chosen hotels to help you find a well-suited one in an ideal location.
Being happy with your accommodation is a great way to start a holiday !
