i will visit thailand so i have to collect information. this page helped me a lot. thanks. if anyone want to make me friend please email email@example.com
I have visited Thailand before but never been to Pattaya. I am planning to visit Thailand with my family including my 7 year old daughter and like to hire an independent driver to visit places, we will look after the hotels, meals etc.
Well, I think you, Christopher, do not have to worry about hiring a driver, because there are a plenty of taxi drivers, and Song Taew for you to hire. You can ask them for a day trip to go to many places if you want to.
In the case of restaurants, if you would like to taste seafood, Moom Aroi would be one of interesting choices for you. There are lots of people recommending this restaurant, no matter they are expats or Thai. For other restaurants, I would suggest you to look at the section of restaurant directory instead. All of them are quite reputable restaurants, so just choose it depending on your type.
For the Hotels, almost 3-5 stars hotels are good and dependable. You can choose one from which area you want to stay, e.g. near Pattaya Cliff, near The beach, near walking street. You can Look at the page of hotel information for more detail.
Thank you for interesting in visiting Pattaya.

Are Water sports available at Pattaya or any other nearby Islands? any other great places to visit?
Thanks in advance!
I'm not sure about the charge for hiring a cab. but if you want to go to Coral Island, you should go to "Koh Larn" page. there are water sports available at either Jomtien Beach or Tawaen Beach on Koh Larn (Coral Island).

Thai people? Treat them with respect they deserve and they will be nice to you.
Treat them badly and you deserve what ever happens to you.
