2 days in Pattaya: A Travel Story
Pattaya, 165 km from the capital city of bangkok, has a coast to the gulf of Thailand and hosts 5.5 million tourists a year, although the population is around 100,000. Because the climate of the city is warm and warm all year round, it is attracting a lot of tourists from eastern europe and Russia.
I can say that Pattaya is one of the most popular holiday resorts in the country. Because it is a tourist city, entertainment life continues throughout the day and there is a street called “walking street” in its most central place. The tourists who come to pattaya for a holiday, have a quiet day at the hotel or at the beach. On the evening, they go to the most famous street of the city and have fun.
Although everybody is concerned about food in Thailand, be sure you will never have any problems in Pattaya. The breakfast is very clean and varied, and for lunch and dinner you can choose any of the world famous fastfood restaurant chains along the seafront. In addition to this, there is a greek buffet, which is made in the same region with 2 italian restaurants..
Pattaya hill is undoubtedly the most beautiful view of the city and the highest peak of the city. From this hill between Pattaya and jomtien beaches you can see haad pattaya’s half-moon beach with all its beauty and take a souvenir photo.
There is also a huge Buddhist temple on the hill called “wat khao phra bat”, attracted by tourists. This temple is stepped out of a stairway and adorned with motifs of right and left snakes painted in golden gold. With a chinese style temple called “phra yai temple” dedicated to Confucius in the same place. When you visit here, I suggest you to buy a few souvenirs for your loved ones, you can find a lot of souvenirs.
Silverlake wineyard A vineyard in chonburi province, which was opened in 2002, is a vineyard to which it is virtually impossible to say the words to say good-bye. Together with an impeccable landscape design, has a great restaurant and a lush green space for children’s families. This place, which belongs to a private establishment, also produces wine with grapes gathered from the vineyards and continues to the domestic and foreign markets. You pay a small fee for the entrance and the prices in the restaurant are generally very reasonable, I suggest you visit it. Especially one afternoon visit to watch the sunset.
The buddha mountain was made in 1996 by commemorating the king of Thailand in a gold-colored buddha image on a mountain of 109 meters long and 70 meters wide. The building is about 20 km from the city of Pattaya and is one of the city’s top tourist attractions. Since it is not a very big city as a surface area for pattaya, you can go to both pattaya and silverlake vineyards and buddha mountain within one day even if you do not have a lot of time.
