Pattaya: Explore Your Dream Destination

Image result for Pattaya city

Whenever one thinks of Pattaya, they think of parties and nightlife. However, my experience in the city is much more than just the parties. With increased money bring brought in the city, there is an increase in the number of popular sites which interest tourists. There are so many options that you are going to be spoilt for choices. In my opinion, these are the few things that you need to check to make it a trip worth remembering.

Visit Tropical Garden

In case you have an interesting landscape, flowers, and trees like me, Nooch is the ideal place to visit. It is spread over an area of 2.4 kilometers. I came across most unique and beautiful flowers to be found across the world. This garden has won several awards for the design. It is well-maintained. Apart from different flowers, you will also find different kinds of trees. You will find 670 different species of orchid.

Check Out the Floating Market

I found many floating markets in Thailand. However, the one in Pattaya has a different charm about it. It is named the Four Regions. This is because it is divided into 4 regions, the northeast, the north, central, and south. The region represents their own part in their country. However, not every stall will be floating here. You find some of the boats that move across the canals. I hired a boat to get a good look at the market and check out what it has to offer.

Climb Wat Phra Khao Yai

It is also called the Big Buddha Hill and is called by the name because of it the tallest Buddha in the region. The Buddha is 100 meters above sea level. As I climbed to the top and stood beside Buddha, I could see the whole of Pattaya. It was a mesmerizing sight.

Pai: Spend Some Time in the Charming City

It is only in recent times that Pai has started becoming popular among tourists. I heard so much about the place that I couldn’t restrain myself from visiting. I have to say that it didn’t fail to impress me. Here are some of the attractions that you can check out when you are in Pai.

 

  • Take a Scooter to Explore

 

Rent a scooter and grab a map to get going. I had a fun and adventurous day riding on my scooter. The green landscape and the fresh air make the ride a real joy. In case you do not know how to ride a scooter, you can take classes before renting one.  This spot reminds me of my friend back in Pennsylvania who runs a Harrisburg auto repair business.  He is a tool guy and renting a scooter is right up his alley!

 

  • Visit Land Split

 

In the year 2008, a farmer’s field had suffered a ripped gash due to seismic activity. As you walk through the geological spectacle, it is going to take twenty minutes. What I loved the most was that the farmers offer great hospitality and tasty treats. I may decide to want to stay back for some more time.  

 

  • Check Out Pai Canyon

 

It might not be a big one but is worth a visit. You can visit to catch the sunset, it is just ethereal. Go early and hike. The tranquility comes as a respite from the busy schedule. However, keep in mind that the narrow paths have a sharp drop and might not be suitable for children.

 

  • Enjoy the Hot Spring

 

During the month of March and April, the city experienced a high temperature. Travelers take this opportunity to soak in the hot spring which is smear volcanic mud and sulfuric water. I visited the one that is less frequented, Sai Ngam Hot Springs. However, it is a thirty-minute drive from the town towards the north. It is open from 8 in the morning to 6 in the evening.
