Pattaya is 3 hours drive from Phaya thai! In Thailand, Pattaya and Phuket are well known for beaches! Pattaya has a very good beach with a good marine drive. Pattaya Sea shore has people who give very good Foot massage for sun bathers! Cold tender coconut at Pattaya is the sweetest in its kind! Apart from those, Skydiving, deep sea diving and motor boating, biking adds to much fun! One day at Pattaya will be more than enough to experience all these! From phaya thai, there are buses to Pattaya. Near the beach, Gems Galleria is present where we can spend excellent 2 hours on seeing something about Jewelery! If you are from India, it is better not to buy ornaments from there as it costs much cheaper here!
