Places to live in Pattaya

Posted on 03 July 2014 by ABPC

Pattaya is undoubtedly a great place to live but there are so many different areas to choose from that choosing what is right for you can be a difficult task.  What suits one person, doesn’t always suit another.  Some people are looking to be at the heart of the action, some people have families and want to live somewhere quiet, whilst others may want a bit of both!

Central Pattaya

Central Pattaya is one of the more popular areas of the city with bachelors of all ages who are looking to stay close to the main action areas of Walking Street and Soi Buakhao.  The advantages of this area include the fact that everything is in close proximity and either within walking distance or a short motorbike taxi ride away.  The area has baht buses close by for those looking to travel slightly further afield. Living in any major city can have its drawbacks. Depending on the locale certain areas are noisier than others but for the majority of city dwellers there are few complaints.



Naklua is a little bit of a mix.  The area is close to nice beaches and slightly more upmarket with prices similar to Central Pattaya although the room sizes are often slightly bigger.  The area is within easy travelling distance to the entertainment areas although this would need to be taxi or baht bus ride. The area is far quieter than central areas and is a favourite for the corporate family working on the Eastern Seaboard

Naklua Pattaya


Pratamnak is very similar to Naklua but with better quality beaches. The area is again suitable for families and within easy travelling distance to the entertainment areas although this would need to be taxi or baht bus ride. Pratumnak is especially well known as a weekend retreat for some members of the Thai Royal family who own a very nice beachfront property which is of course extremly secure.

East Pattaya

East Pattaya is where most of the housing estates are.  The villages range in price and are more suited to families rather than singles that are out here alone.  There is plenty of entertainment in its own right over ‘the dark side’ but it is some distance away from Walking Street and Soi Buakhao.  This is probably the best area for families but less appropriate for people looking to be at the heart of the action.

East Pattaya


Outside Pattaya is somewhere like Huay Yai or Bang Saray.  These areas have quality housing and offer different opportunities.  They are both well away from the ‘action’ but within easy travelling distance to these areas.  Again this locale is are more at families.
