Pattaya is Thailand's most popular tourist destination situated only a one and half hours drive from the Capital, Bangkok. The city and the surrounding districts have a large resident expatriate community. As a result the area has a cosmopolitan feel with mixture of services catering for many nationalities. There is high degree of English language spoken by the local employees in most establishments. The expatriate families that live here enjoy a very high standard of living.

This seaside resort has been transformed from a sleepy fishing village, in the mid 1960"s to a popular holiday destination and finally becoming a safe thriving beachside City catering not only to the tourist but also to conventions and major international sporting events.

Local Weather
Pattaya Beach Resort enjoys all year round sunshine, the hot tropical climate temperatures average in the 30's for most of the year and the evenings remain warm. Thailand has three seasons the cool season which begins in December until February, the hot season from March until July and the rainy season From August until November.

Unlike some other tropical locations like the Philippines or Florida and the Caribbean, Pattaya, which is located in the Gulf of Siam, is sheltered from very bad weather and a high wind is very rare. Click the following link to see the latest forecast for the Pattaya area.
