    Crowded but a great atmosphere
    Like Jomtien Beach, our last visit here was 1988. Back then it was a brave person that swam in the ocean with the amount of untreated effluent that was being discharged and the beach sand was less than clean. Seems to have much improved, many beachgoers crowding the area and, in the water, a myriad of dining outlets, massage parlors, bars, shops, whatever the tourist desires. I think I prefer Jomtien.

    Great
    Our family enjoyed our visit. We played in the sand until it got too hot, then waded in the water and played in the sand once again. Lots of people selling things to play with like beach balls, sand castle sets and floaters. Spectacular sunset too!

    It’s not really a good beach!!
    It’s not really a good beach! I’m disappoint with this place, I was expecting more because everyone said the Thailand beach’s are so beautiful which is not true for this one. There are so many boats close to the beach which make the water a little dusty and even the beach is not clean. I had no chance to went to Puckett but I’m pretty much sure those beaches are with white sand and clear water. Don’t waste your time on this beach.

    SIT BACK AND RELAX WITH A BEER!
    This beach used to be covered in plastic bottles and rubbish, however, the last 10 times it is very clean indeed. Warm water, great for swimming. Sun loungers available to keep the sun off you at a reasonable rate. Food and drinks available including beer etc. Water sports including paragliding and banana rides, jet skis etc. For swimming a number of cordoned off areas for your safety ensure a good swim.

As beaches go, this one is pretty average. Sun loungers for hire are arrayed almost along the entire beach and Beach Road is convenient for the endless restaurants, bars and massages places. The water does not look clean and I certainly wouldn't go in for a swim. However, everything you'd possibly want from a beach holiday is virtually on the beach whether it's water sports, food or entertainment.

Pattaya Beach is the tourist attraction place and we enjoyed this place during our visit. Street foods are available. Many water sport activities are there and we took part in a few events. The area is always busy and tourists used to walk and enjoy in this place.

I have travel all over Thailand and had never been to pattaya. I decided to visit from 5 night after a 6 month stay in Thailand. This city is a embarrassment to the wonderful country of Thailand. The people of pattaya were overall rude and nothing like real Thai people. If you want to get scammed this is the place to go .Definitely not a place to take your family with children . The place is full of prostitution. And the streets are dirty and the beaches are polluted. There are many of better destinations in Thailand to choose to visit .do not go to pattaya

So what's cha ged in Pattaya in the past 5 years?

A lot less tourists, especially the Chinese! A bonus!

Sadly every 3rd or 4th shop or bar etc, still sits closed and often derelict.

Gone are the days that every Thai lady is young and slim, nowadays like the tourists they are older and with a few spare tires!

The roads as ever are still being dug up all the time and of course the Pattaya beach walkway is still falling apart.

Its not all doom and gloom, the weather is great, the bars are a fair price, and the Police don't seem to be around so much.

Love pattaya, usually I go as a single, but this time we went as a family, love the seafood restaurants, so fresh, still alive, before cooking. Good for family get together on the beach, also get served beer and meals, served to you while on the beach.
