Pattaya Beach – Your Favourite Places

By | August 15, 2013

Pattaya Beach, Thailand

Pattaya City is located on the Eastern Seaboard of Thailand on the Gulf of Thailand, approximately 165 kilometers southeast of Bangkok.

Pattaya’s naughty, party-city reputation was due to the American legacy during the Vietnam War and also because of its close proximity to Bangkok.

Many poor rural girls from the Isaan region, one of the poorest in North-eastern Thailand, supplied the sex trade here. The sex business is still very much alive today, albeit a little toned down since the Thai tourism authorities strived to give the area a better image from 2001.Plans to build more conference and sports centers and wholesome activity places have been put into place.
