List of Pattaya Beach Tourist Spots
Impressed by Bangkok’s majestic temples? Learned something new about Thai history in Ayutthaya? Reflected on the horrors of war in Kanchanaburi? If so, time to let go of the serious stuff and party along Pattaya Beach.

However, there are a lot of tourist spots alongside the numerous bars and clubs, so the province has something to offer. This article will highlight the most iconic attractions that wowed and continue to wow visitors today.

Art in Paradise
If you want to imitate people pretending to be paintings by holding picture frames, this Pattaya Beach attraction is for you. Be one with the art by posing with the more than 100 pieces of optical illusion paintings and exhibits on display. Pretend to be floating above water or chased by a wild animal coming out of the frame; you can do that here and so much more.
Nong Nooch Botanical Garden
The Nong Nooch is a 2.4 sq. km theme park showcasing various attractions and things to do. They have daily cultural and elephant shows, spectacular gardens as follows: Stonehenge, or European Renaissance garden, and their famous French garden. Species-specific gardens, such as tropical palm gardens, orchid nurseries, cactus, succulent plants, bonsai, and topiary gardens, are equally fascinating.
Ripley’s Believe it Or Not Museum.
If you’re more into seeing the creepy, bizarre, and unbelievable, Ripley’s Pattaya Beach was made for you. One of the numerous Ripley’s museums all around the world, the attraction showcases unusual and weird artifacts and exhibits that will make you believe in the impossible. There’s also the Infinity Maze and Haunted Adventure to explore and a 4D Moving Theatre. The famous Tussauds Wax Museum, displaying lifelike wax figures of prominent personalities, caters to visitors with more conventional tastes.
The Walking Street
The most famous attraction in Pattaya Beach is its bars and clubs, and The Walking Street is the most prominent party spot in the region and throughout Thailand. The place can get so jampacked that it is often closed to vehicular traffic, especially on Fridays and weekends. The Walking Street caters to every adult sensibilities ranging from fine-dining restaurants for the conservative and restrained to cabaret bars and strip clubs for those looking for a drunk and wild evening.
Differing from the standard cabaret shows (although those can still be found in Pattaya Beach) in that they are for the general audience. The performers are not scantily-clad and usually tell a story about Thai culture or history. Viewers will also be surprised to know that there is no female among the performers; all of them are “ladyboys,” a Thai term referring to gays or transgender people.
Sanctuary of Truth
A must-visit attraction in Pattaya, The Sanctuary of Truth is a huge all-Thai wood temple. The temple was constructed with no use of any single nail.
Teddy Bear Museum
This attraction would prove you wrong if you thought Pattaya Beach was only for adults. The museum houses more than a thousand teddy bears and stuffed animals. Visitors can even play around with the exhibits if they wish.
Just as surprising that “family-friendly” attractions exist in Pattaya Beach is that it is peaceful and quiet in the area. If you’re tired from the parties or no longer want to mingle with the crowds on the beaches, go to Pattaya Viewpoint for a bit of solitude and a spectacular view of Pattaya Bay. Just don’t mind the tour groups since they only take pictures of the area for a few minutes before returning to their coaches to continue the tour. Once they’re gone, the city will be peaceful and quiet once more.
Bali Hai Pier – Pattaya Beach, located on the Gulf of Thailand, has its fair share of seaside attractions. One of these attractions is the Bali Hai Pier, servicing ferries and speed boat rentals to and from the island paradise of Ko Lan. Visitors who are content with remaining close to Pattaya can opt to go fishing or scuba diving.
Thrillseekers in Pattaya Beach can go to Beach Road and rent a boat to go parasailing around the coast. Visitors are advised to ask locals unaffiliated with any of the rental shops to avoid being charged exorbitant rates.
Wat Chaimongkol is a Buddhist temple on the border of Pattaya Beach and Ayutthaya, providing the partygoers a glimpse of Thai culture and history and a solemn reminder to practice moderation and restraint amidst the parties and celebrations. Visitors are encouraged to participate in Buddhist holidays, give offerings, and shop in the market open during those times.

Rumors usually destroy reputations, but it worked well for Pattaya Beach, Thailand’s premier party destination. Feel free to take a break here from the hustle and bustle in Bangkok, the history lessons in Ayutthaya, and the seriousness of Kanchanaburi. Even families and kids have something to enjoy here. People should have fun and live life to the fullest regardless of age or marital status. And that cements Pattaya’s reputation – everyone is allowed to the party! So get your most relaxed outfit, leave work behind, practice your killer dance moves, and head to the beach; the party’s waiting.
