Someone once said Pattaya is Thai style Miami with many hotels and apartments right on the beach, traffic, bustle of the city, music, light and countless bars and restaurants.

In Pattaya you can see family-friendly activities, as well as entertainment venues for adults only. Contrasts can be seen at every step as in the whole country and this is a positive advantage because everyone can find something interesting. Enjoy our trip to get to know, but for a moment it's a very crazy city.

After a meeting in the port we will go to Pattaya city located about 40 km from the port and it will take us about 1 hour. You will be able to spend some time getting to know this contrasting place, enjoying the warmth, sunshine and smiles of local people.

On the beginning we will to go Nongnooch botanical garden. It was opened to the public in 1980, and added to the garden was a daily Thai cultural show and elephant show within the theater. Three years later, the garden management was handed over to her son, Mr Kampon Tansacha, and today is one of the most popular attractions of Thailand as well as a center of world botanical significant under the concept “a garden for all people of this world”.

Presently, Nongnooch garden is a very popular tourist attraction with an area of over 1, 700 rai welcoming tourists from all over the world. More than 5,000 people visit each day and the garden has also been recognised as one of the top ten most beautiful gardens in the world. It is rated highly by global websites and has received numerous honors and awards including as the following.

During your stay you will see a large collection of orchids, many kinds of cacti, and many other flowers and plants. You will get to know some of the Thai culture and traditions in the local show. After that it will be possible to watch the most interesting shows throughout Thailand with the participation of elephants. You will be able to see their fitness, sense of humor and artistry. This is the most dynamic show in the whole country. There is also quite a collection of older and younger cars in the park.

Then we will go to the hill called Buddha Hill, which is the highest area in the city, where you will see the whole view of the center of Pattaya
On the seafront promenade, Ko Larn Island close to the city and the Jomtien area. On the hill there is one of the most famous Buddhist temples with a large statue of the sitting Buddha.

After exploring the views of the city, we will go to the Jomtien area, which is slightly newer part of the city, to have a good time relaxing on the beach, overlooking the shops and bars. There will be time for lunch and a guide will be able to help with your choice.

If will have some free time you will be able to drive around the shopping area to spend some time looking at the products. The guide will decide this depending on the amount of time to return to the port to return to the ship on time.

After that place will be time to return to your transportation for the ride back to the port in Laem Chabang. However, you will have collected memories (and hopefully photos) of an experience in a city that most can only see in their dreams.
