Pattaya is an extraordinary phenomenon. In translation, "Pattaya" means "wind blowing from the southwest to the northeast at the beginning of the rainy season." In the recent past, Pattaya was a small fishing village on the shores of the Gulf of Thailand. Pattaya turned into a resort after it became a favorite vacation spot for American soldiers in 1961. During the war in Indochina, when Thailand played the role of a rear for the Americans who openly fought in Vietnam and secretly in Laos and Cambodia, one of the US air bases was located at the U-Tapao airport.
Located just 150 km southeast of Bangkok, in a wide bay with a cascade of stunning beaches, Pattaya has been gentrified over the past three decades and has earned the title of "resort city" for good reason. Here everyone will find what he likes - this is the rare attraction of Pattaya. While other resorts attract tourists solely for their natural location, Pattaya strives to provide holidaymakers with everything they can think of. To its main advantage - a unique geographical location, Pattaya adds everything that makes up an ideal vacation - entertainment, attractions and just fun.
Today Pattaya is an international resort serving over 3.5 million tourists a year. According to statistics, the increase in the number of tourists is from 250 to 600 thousand per year.
