Pattaya Books

  Pattaya is a city in Thailand, located on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand, about 160 km south of Bangkok located within the province of Chon Buri. The city of Pattaya is a self governing special municipal area which covers the whole tambon Nong Prue and Na Kluea and parts of Huai Yai and Nong Pla Lai. It is located in the heavily industrial Eastern Seaboard zone, along with Si Racha, Laem Chabang, and Chon Buri. However, Pattaya remains mostly a tourist city, with very light industry. It is one of the largest tourist centers in Thailand, with some 5.4 million visitors arriving in 2006. The city offers accomodation for all price ranges, beautiful (though somewhat polluted) beaches, friendly people, excellent shopping, reasonable prices and a wide variety of nearby tourist attractions. However, Pattaya is second only to Bangkok in high rise buildings, as many condominiums for foreign residents are built, and has a modest skyline. The city's economy benefits from its relative proximity to Bangkok, as opposed to other tourist destinations.
