Where is the best area in Pattaya to stay?

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

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,

 

 

 

I can understand all that, the "felt too quiet" thing puts me off, that's why i like best being walking distance to central, with life around me

Jomtien. Not far by baht bus and fairly quite

A huge big pain in the ass to take a songtaew there and back. Big queues of people at South Pattaya Rd intersection, so many Russians and the traffic jam to get there sometimes is very bad.

Beach Rd, so you can have oceanfront views and views of all the hookers standing around waiting for customers.

Yeah high season is the big drawback. Russians storming the baht bus as if it were the last one on the planet

My general view is that you want to be on the fringe of central pattaya and on or very near the baht bus route.

Central pattaya itself to expensive for anything decent and the craziness could get tiresome but lots of food options.

Jomtien seems to be more elderly people and its a ways from pattaya.

Naklua rd is ok within a couple of km's of Terminal 21 roundabout but in my opinion it gets a bit too Thai if you go deeper than that. The food options can be frustrating sometimes.

Dark side too far.

Someone mentioned third road - That could also be an ok option if near the baht bus route.

Just don't be one of these guys who lives in a crappy old apartment paying marked up electricity and water fees. Condos usually cost less and are often new and have gyms, pools and government rates for utilities.

I would be looking for condos in Third road, Naklua or North pattaya.

PM me if you need contacts.

I live at the Lumpini Naklua-Wongamat complex off Naklua Road. It is very quiet and on a baht bus route making it very close to the beach, T21 and a host of bars and restaurants in Naklua and beyond. There is a variety of condos to rent long term. It is worth a look IMO.

Agree. They have rentals advertised in front office although you can get cheaper deals if you find the agent yourself.

  Can you drive a motor scooter?

If not that could limit your options

So areas such as Soi Bua Khao  would work if you cannot drive a motor scooter

Everything  is located on that street

Except sidewalks.

 

...and scooter parking places.

Do non tourists go to the beach?

North Pattaya and Naklua for me. Great for shopping, a few entertainment places if you want that, decent gyms, and easy Baht bus access to where the action is downtown.

It really depends on your taste and needs.Coming to Pattaya for 20 years now, I found my home away from home near the silver place (where I originally stayed) on 3rd street.Everything on walking distance.Fair price for room per month.Atmosphere very relaxed.I made friends with everybody around me.(I like beeing polite).Can have a quiet evening with people around me, can go downtown 'going out' .Most of my Thai friends went downtown with me for the first time in their life,( a 2 minute walk)since they understand it as a jungle.Sincerity is well respected.
