sorry, what?  No idea what you are talking about. I was commenting specifically on Pattaya, which is indeed a sleazy, polluted, crime/scam ridden, traffic nightmare, dump of a place.  Also on Koh Chang beaches, where I have to dodge rubbish and dog turds to even see the ocean.  Not sure what lady boys and Soi 6 have to do with anything.  Did you get out of the wrong side of the bed today? 

There are some lovely resorts in Pattaya which are also great for the kids (Z-thru Etc), also kids activities (Harbourland etc).,., 
 

Your comments seem to be based on one area of Pattaya, a common putdown for the judgemental, illinformed or those whose only exposure to Pattaya the seedy side.

 

 

You can't even see the ocean for dog turds???  Exaggerate much? 

That's like someone saying we cant read your comments for all the unhinged negative bias !!!!

Go somewhere else, maybe the islands, or the Ademan coast north of Phuket.  Pattaya is a dump and not suitable for children.  Avoid like the plague. Koh Chang is a nice enough town, but nothing much to do and the beaches are terrible, full of rubbish and soi dogs and deep shelving water.  Go east of Rayong and the beaches are very nice and some fairly new 3* hotels there too. Personally, as I did with my kids moons ago, the further south you go the better. 

I've been to Koh Chang a couple or three times, never had a problem, we stayed (9 of us) on white sands beach, the rooms looked out over the pool and beach to the ocean, the beach was always clean, never had any problems with soi dogs and you could walk out more than 100 mtrs from the shore and the water only just came up to my chest, so all I can say is that it must have gone down hill rapidly since my last visit.

 

Plenty of bars and restaurants outside our hotel and with transport it's easy to get around, I really like it there.

My opinion.  We were all asked by the OP to give an opinion and I did.  Yes, it won't be everyone's view, but it's mine, so I passed it on. Yes, there are a lot of things for the kids to do in Pattaya, but the place does not warrant a visit for that sole reason. The negatives in my view, outweigh the positives. For that reason, I stopped going to the City with my kids over 10 years ago. The last time, we stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel, nice place and good for kids.  Great for our daughter, but even she said afterwards that she didn't want to go back there.  Very perceptive for a 12 year old, as she was at the time.

Thousands live in Pattaya see your view as ridiculous,  one sided and paranoid. Were you the victim of a crime or scam? Pattaya is one of the safest cities in the world for visitors. As for sleaze- you looked for it and found it. But people like you hang plastic fig leaves on classical statues...You find so much and so many things sleazy you would complain about topless bathing on a European beach.

Why would the OP choose Pattaya when he can go to Jomtien,  Hua Hin or Rayong? Anyway Im sure his kids will enjoy walking street. Less sleaze than the average hip hop video. Less nudity than on a European beach.

I think Pattaya is much better than its "reputation" suggests, with great shopping and food venues. If you want to avoid the seedier side of Pattaya you can easily do so. However, I would never take children to any of the beaches ... if that is an essential part of the vacation then I think you'd be better off in Hua Hin.

Noting the point of confusion, since Pattaya City includes Jomtien, plus a lot of square miles north of Naklua and south of Jomtien past Ban Amphur. It is not only Central Pattaya.

 

He77, Pilot man's mud hut that is hidden in the jungle and fortified against Ho Chi Minh may even be in Pattaya city limits.

I don't agree with much that you have written.  I haven't been scammed, or mugged, as I take care not to be in those situations.  I have also travelled the World and , in my opinion, Pattaya is one of the very least attractive places to visit and holiday in.  Nothing paranoid about it, I just think that it is dirty, , noisy, badly planned, congested, polluted, scam ridden holes I have ever been in and that includes a few East and West African resorts.  Just because someone doesn't agree with you, it doesn't make their opinion any more ridiculous that yours.  Actually, your comments remind me of another reason I don't like Pattaya,  many  of the unsavoury folk that you see around the place, local and farang.
