Where is the best area in Pattaya to stay?

Recommended Posts

Just a general question. I have been looking around Pattaya, Jomtien, Naklua and across on the Darkside. I have only been here on holiday in the past, but now going to stay here for a year starting in July. I am lucky I can work from home so not worried about getting to or from an office etc.... So where is best to live, I don't care about girly bars etc, yes they are fun and enjoyable but not a necessity. I like Jomtien and like Darkside. Been looking around on property websites and there are lots of places available for a years rent.

 

Is there anywhere people can recommend or places to avoid?

Its a personal choice, i like beyond 3rd road which makes central Pattaya walkable. I don't fancy Naklua or Jomtien. Pratamak isn't a bad choice between central and Jomtien

The "Darkside" worked well for me, spent 15 years living there, the "madness" of downtown is just a drive away when you want it, need to have your own transport though, preferably four wheels.

Jomtien is good...convenient for wild evenings when feeling the urge...

I lived in Jomtien for about two years before moving to the Darkside, 98 - 2000, it was quite back then, very few bars or decent restaurants.

There is a soi in naklua, maybe Soi12, that lead to some temple of truth or something.

 

I loved that area....visited someone who had a nice bungalow there. Was lovely

I could not beat pratamnak. Quiet sea vuew condo to live and work, you have a nice uncrowded beach right there, yet walking distance or baht bus to downtown. The problem is, it felt to quiet and desolate knowing the wild downtown scene was right there.

 

I recall looking up at a empty condo building and saying to mysf 'is this it? Retirement, the end of the line, and becoming depressed, but thats another story.

 

The question is, as always, what do "you" want?

I lived on that Soi in 97, the area was nice - problem was, even back then the traffic! getting back onto the main road was "challenging" that was the main reason I moved out to Jomtien.
