Welcome to Pattaya
Pattaya, the city where everything is possible and everything is allowed, used to be a traditional fishing village, but has grown to become the most visited tourist beach town in Thailand. This bustling town manages to welcome and accommodate up to 5 million tourists a year. With its presence of so many different things to see and things to do, it will be no surprise to the visitor that this town has plenty in store for all.
Besides the well-known go-go bars that line the streets, there are a large number of fancy pubs and clubs, plus the best of international restaurants serving food from all over the world. Imagine enjoying dinner in a romantic setting while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Thailand?
If you are into shopping, don’t look any further. In Pattaya you will find shopping malls in every price range, or you can visit one of the local (night)markets to satisfy your every shopping need. As for travelers who are here to enjoy the sun, there are many beaches and islands in the vicinity of Pattaya. Besides all this, we have developed a number of day tours for everyone to enjoy and experience the traditional and cultural side of Thailand.
Bike and hike tours
For those visitors who like to ride a push bike, we have bicycle tours where you will discover Pattaya as the small fishing town that it used to be. On a relaxed tour where you will be cycling on quiet streets, we will bring you to places not yet discovered by other tourists, where you can enjoy watching the local Thai people going about their daily lives. In addition to that we also offer a mountain bike tour and a hike tour on designated trails in the real Thai jungle.
On our Back To The Past long-tail boat tour you will cruise through an area unknown to the regular tourists. From the waterside you are witnessing the Thai as they live and work in the traditional way, totally depending on the water on which their houses are built. Nature lovers and birdwatchers can indulge themselves here. And you will visit a 100 year old market. Go back in time and discover the original Thailand during our extraordinary day excursion.
Richard our bike guide was very knowledgeable and patient. He gave us a good exploration of Pattaya and kept my 9-year-old son happy. It was a useful 4 hours of exercise on the bikes. Highly recommended to all.Jimtance on Tripadvisor
Great tour. My friend and I were in Pattaya for four days and wanted to see some of Thailand other than the city of Pattaya. It was a great experience to be out on the boat zipping around the water ways.Keith N on Tripadvisor
Perfect daytrip to explore the surroundings of Pattaya, and get a feel for the 'normal' everyday live for the people here. Richard guided very well, and explained more about local life than just the basic stuff.Alain W on Tripadvisor
We had a splendid day touring by boat. The local sights were very colorful and well presented. The guide, Mallee, kept things moving and interesting with stops at rice paddies and prawn farms.gdavidgordon on Tripadvisor
This is a great way to tour the city and get it's real feel. Richard and Caroline were very very hospitable and excellent company as they took us on a biking tour of the city - the Sanctuary of Truth, the Muay Thai boxing school and the local fish market. Totally worth it!squenx on Tripadvisor
Very nice experience. Very interesting to see very local settings, visits to the harbour, fish market, school for blind kids and also very local food. The bike difficulty was easy, I would say. Everything was great - good job Richard. We will most certainly come back again.Jens S on Tripadvisor
What I liked was seeing parts of Pattaya that I would never have seen on my own... never. Think of it as more of a "behind the scenes" tour... taking you down the back streets and alleys of a city where most tourists remain trapped at the Beach or Walking Street.CaseyBThousand Oaks on Tripadvisor
