Pattaya is back to normal
Since October Thailand has seen a significant increase in international arrivals and resorts like Pattaya are benefiting.
Hotels, restaurants, and tourist attractions are all busy as the local airport U Tapao is also receiving numerous charter flights from Russia.
Since the start of Covid the city has been keen to tidy up its image and there are now wider beaches along Jomtien and upgraded roads.
There have also been several new hotels opening including the Centre Point Space and the re-vamped Amari Hotel.
Several new restaurants have sprung up, especially around the Cozy Beach Pratamnak area including Oxygen with over 2,000 seats overlooking the sea. Great for selfies.
Add to these 28 top golf courses all within an hour’s drive of the city and it is not surprising why Pattaya can at last see light at the end of the tunnel.
