There is enough choice for every price range in the "fun" city of Pattaya.
But there can be qualitative worlds between two hotels with the same price.
It is enough mold in the bathroom .. a noisy main street that does not let you sleep .. or the photos of the rooms that have nothing to do with reality. I have been to the following hotels several times myself. Always at least 1 week each. Sutus Court is by far the most popular because the location is really perfect. The March Hotel is the most cozy, you have to walk 10 minutes or take a scooter taxi (30-100 baht). I like to use the "Sleep with me", but only if the price is currently not higher than 25 €. This fluctuates a lot.
Hotspot 1: has it all
Hotspot 2: a smaller edition of Walking Street and a lot cheaper
Hotspot 3: many beer bars, cozy and large selection
Hotspot 4: many beer bars, very cheap, the absolute number 1 for many
Hotspot 5: many beer bars, cheap, a must for everyone
Hotspot 6: similar to Hotspot 3, also popular
Money & finance
☐ bag or compartment in hand luggage
☐ EC card (bank card)
☐ Credit card + Bank emergency numbers
☐ Tan generator (necessary depending on the bank)
☐ Access online banking and PIN already + prepare at home
A fanny pack or an easily accessible bag in your hand luggage for your wallet, passport and plane tickets / handbag because you often have to take them out.
Take enough cash with you if:
The train ticket to the airport will be lost.
Short taxi ride is necessary.
Money for food and drink on the trip.
Excess baggage must be paid (too much weight)
Money for 2-3 days if the bank card should not work in Thailand. You can always exchange cash in Thailand.
You are now in Pattaya. In your hotel you go to take a shower first. Iam sure because it will be hot outside, as it is always. Then pull on your shorts and a pair of flip-flops or some other shoes. A shirt and of course your wallet. The plan is for a coffee, going to the beach and visit a shopping mall. But that's not why you're in Pattaya. So after your sightseeing..
Where, how and how much
In Pattaya City, it is very easy possible to meet pretty girls that offer their special services. Most busy it is in and around the Walking Street itself. On the other side to the north of the city (15 minutes) the Soi-6 is located. But from the Walking Street from to Soi-6 is also everything possible. Pattaya leaves no wish "unsatisfied". [A Soi is a side street.]
Ko Samui is south of Koh Phangan. One of the most popular destinations in Thailand. Much quieter than Bangkok and so how tropical Thailand imagines.
The island is not particularly large. Within one afternoon you could circumnavigate Ko Samui nearly even with the scooter. This is what makes these islands so interesting. It comes down to a feeling of tropical island paradise.
No roads, no transport, a small village on an island between two mountains
Hidden idyllic beaches sound too good to be true. But that offers Ko Phi Phi.
The madness! Incredibly perfect! Shows on a map and asks a taxi boat (long tail boat) so that it brings you dothin. For 3 or 4 euros - off you go. Perfectly!

Two large islands offer themselves as a travel destination:
There is the street in which it is super cheap and the hottest girls work. Many of the girls there could work in Go Go bars. In this street, most bars and girls are in one spot. You can only drink a beer or go directly short-time with your chosen one. The prices are really great with 800 to 1200 Baht (maximum) and 200-300 Baht room rent.
"fun" tourism - Some hate it, the others come precisely why to Thailand.
"fun" tourism in Pattaya attracts every year about 10 million visitors. Approximately 40,000 women have your affection and offer "fun"ual services in Pattaya. A men's paradise and what you will sure like if it is that what you are looking for. Of course there are other good reasons to visit the town south of Bangkok but the offer of "fun" workers can be seen throughout the city and is part of the cityscape starting in the late afternoon.
From downtown Bangkok to Pattaya
From downtown or from Bangkok Airport (Suvarnabhumi Airport) to Pattaya, a taxi ride with prices from 1000 baht (around 25€). A bus ride already for about 5 to 7 €. If you should arrive at night or for the first time, you will be grateful for a quick and comfortable taxi. The more convenient method is therefore the taxi. The cheapest way a non-stop bus. So a good effective method is the bus too. Don`t worry. The journey takes 1.5 to 3 hours depending on the traffic. Buses run from 7-22 pm. Taxis around the clock. Bangkok to Pattaya !
Bangkok has it all.
For backpackers, conscious culture, Hungry, "fun" tourists, party-goers and couples.
From the airport (Suvarnabhumi) to Bangkok Khao San Road
The most convenient way is by taxi.
The taxis are at the airport. In the lower area of Terminal 1. Cost 400 to 500 baht (9 to 12 €). Some drivers offer you rides for 1000 baht at the airport (and more). You should ignore this offer.
Best to go into an official taxi and see if the taximeter is set. If not, then just get out again. Your right, because without taximeter is illegal. If you should arrive late or at night, then remains only the taxi. The Skytrain and buses run only until 22 clock. TTaxis are more than enough available in any case. No stress.
