Famous People Coming to Pattaya

Posted on 10 July 2014 by ABPC

Over the years Pattaya has been awash with famous people coming to the city for a variety of events.  The city is obviously seen as a popular place where these people can come and ply their trade sometimes for personal gain and sometimes in the name of charity.  It seems that every month at least there will be someone famous in the city, be that DJ’s, sportsmen or women and celebrities from the world of entertainment.


Every year we have LPGA Thailand open that is held at the Siam Country Club golf course in East Pattaya.  All the top players from around the world descend on Pattaya to take part in this prestigious competition.  It really does go some way to prove how well the courses are thought of in the area when a competition such as this comes to town.


We then frequently get stars from the world of snooker, an extremely popular sport here in Thailand amongst both Thais and foreigners.  As regular guests we have Jimmy White, Ken Doherty and Stephen Hendry who all come to play some exhibition matches often taking on locals for at a game of pool.  Last year we had the Manchester United Legends come to Pattaya including Andy Cole, Denis Irwin and Lee Sharpe who all came for a few rounds of golf and some evening functions all in the name of charity.  From the world of Boxing we have former World Heavyweight Champion Riddick Bowe who again came to help out local charities.


From the world of entertainment we have had the guitarist and leader of Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Page who is another regular visitor to our shores.  For the ladies we have had Gary Stretch, the actor, former boxer and model to make sure that they don’t feel left out and some of the entertainment has some interest to them!  The local nightclubs are popular with international DJ’s and most weekends they come to play a set in one or more of the nightclubs in Walking Street.


Pattaya really is a place to be seen and the celebrities are recognising this.  If you are new to Pattaya and wanting to find your way around or perhaps you are one of the people who likes to see and be seen there are venues to suit all.
