What else could be your things to do in Pattaya rather than sun bathing by Pattaya beach and drinking beers?
1. Go Cafe hopping
Coffer lovers, anyone? Not only Bangkok and Chiang Mai, but also Pattaya is another city that has many cute cafes waiting for you to explore as well. A big fan of coffee and desserts, like myself, should never skip this one of all the fun things to do in Pattaya here.

2. Walking around Nong Nooch Garden
Not many people know about this place since it’s located a little further away from Pattaya (approximately 20 minutes of driving.) Nong Nooch botanical garden offers another stunning site you can’t find from the walking street or anywhere else.
If you are in Pattaya or anywhere nearby you definitely have to visit this place. Exploring around this Sanctuary of Truth is absolutely one of the best things to do in Pattaya. Enjoy the day observing the site, participating their local activities, and checking out their woodcraft workshop.
4. Chilling out by a more peaceful beach of Na Klua
Pattaya is famous for its walking street and the beach. But, they’re over-crowded. If you are looking for a quality beach time Na Klua beach is all for you. It’s more beautiful and less touristy there. Travellers often go there to enjoy some water activities and enjoy the serene vibe.

Travelling in Pattaya doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to stay in-shore, right? Let’s go snorkelling in nearby islands like Coral Island and Sak Island. No need to travel all the way down south for the emerald sea and irony sand since you can explore the underwater world and discover some beautiful sea creatures.
6. Pattaya’s View Point
Checking out this place is very recommended. There is a cute cafe at the view point where you can enjoy drinking a good cup of coffee, while watching this gorgeous panoramic view of Pattaya and its shore. The site is located on Phra Tamnak mountain. You can also do some soft trekking up to the point as well.

7. Cycling around Silver Lake Vinyard
If Singha park is the famous attraction of Chiang Rai province Silver Lake vineyard is of Pattaya. Enjoy your quality time there cycling around, participate in the winery workshop, and more as if you are in a western country.

8. Pay respects to Khao Chee Chan Buddha Image & Yannasungwararam temple

A fun escape from the busy, overcrowded Pattaya. By taking a boat ride from Bali Hier pier, you will reach the island before you know it. One of my favourites things to do there is beach-hopping by renting a local motorbike and driving around the island. Discover your favorite hidden beach(es) around Koh Lan island.
