Welcome to Pattaya
Pattaya lies 150 km. to the southeast of Bangkok, less than two hours by road, and stretches for some 15 km. along the Eastern seaboard. Thailand's largest resort, it shares the coast with traditional a fishing villages, other resorts such as Bang Saen and Rayong, new industrial centres, the towns of Chonburi and Sriracha, and the port and naval base of Sattahip. Pattaya beach is a palm-fringed, sandy bay with a view of coral islands on the horizon. Nearby are other cliffs and other bays, while inland, the region is rich in agricultural products including sugar cane, tapioca, rubber, and fruit trees.
Pattaya is now a city in its own right, with its own mayor and its own administration. This is not all due to tourism. The government development programme for the Eastern Seaboard has transformed the region, and this rapid industral and commercail expansion has led to many expatrial coming to live in the area. There is a new deep-sea port at Leam Chabang, 20 km. north of pattaya with a vast industrial estate, and another developement zone at Map Ta Phut near Rayong to the south. Pattaya City is well located to be a major business centre serving these two giant industrial communities. There are five international schools, and four international hospitals in the area.
