Moving to Pattaya from Phuket (Where to live?)

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm planning to move from Phuket to Pattaya. Been living in Phuket for quite awhile, wish to change some new environment. I think Pattaya would be another good choice as it is near to Bangkok (could visit for a short trip whenever i want within a day). If Pattaya is good for a change, i do consider selling my house in Phuket and buy one in Pattaya.

I'm looking for house for rent in Pattaya (6months-1year). Which area is good for settle in? Easy access to food, malls, supermarkets but not overly-crowed and less prone to flooding. I got transportation (car & bikes).

I have been trying hard to find a house for rent from direct owner, which is very hard. I found only agents in fb post, which they charge commission (usually 3-10k) which is pointless to pay them. 

And if you happen to know or wanting to rent out your house. Do let me know. 

-allowed pets (dogs)
-garden
-pattaya area
-budget (8k-16k)

Pattaya is a great choice avoid up North for sure because the smoke will kill you.  Get a hotel for a few days and have a motorcycle drive you around most of the good places will only have sign.

But i have lived in Phuket for nearly 10 years. Can even speak a little south language. Just a little bored. If Pattaya is bad, then i will move to Chiang Mai. But i saw in the news that there is smog problem every year.

North as in Banglamung?

How about East Pattaya, Soi Siam? Does there have any smog problem? I saw few house for rent in Bang Saray which is within my budget i quite like it as there have plentiful of garden for my dogs, but i see in google map, is a little to far from central pattaya. I'm worried hard to find food, supermarkets.

And the Immigration is one of the worst in Thailand and the smog problem is getting worse every year when I was there 2 months now 4 months.  No problem in Pattaya but a lot of people don't like the easy availability of good food and attractive women.  Does not lend it self to Thai bashing. 

Must be true I overheard a guy in savanaket mention he prefers exiting every 90 days as a means of avoiding having to go to immigration there

Does anyone here live in Bang Saray or Sattahip? Finding food, big supermarket such as Big C or Tesco Lotus easy to access? Air quality okay? Flood prone?

    Good advice to come and do some exploring on your own.  Greater Pattaya has a number of different neighborhoods and suburbs.  Jomtien is nice but so is Naklua/Wong Amat--which is close to shopping at Terminal 21 and Central Marina.  Your weekly interests might partly decide where you might be happiest.  Disregard the negative posts.  My partner and I have lived here 9 years and we love it.

And the Rayong area ?  I have never been there, but heard some nice things about it. Cheap and less busy.

Bangkok is nice for food, shopping (good for weekend break) but I think it is too dusty and flood prone place to settle in. 
Haha just wait till rainy season Pattaya it leaves bangkok in the dust alright
