Pattaya is a city on Thailand’s eastern Gulf Coast, around 150 km southeast of Bangkok. It was a quiet fishing village up until the 1960s, until tourism exploded in the area, bringing in shopping malls, cabaret bars and multiple resort hotels.

While it’s well-known for its bustling nightlife, it still has a plethora of incredible beaches and local attractions to enjoy. And, you’ll never go hungry with the huge amount of local and international restaurants in the area. When you’re ready to charter a yacht, Pattaya is the ideal spot to set sail and cruise around the Gulf of Thailand visiting famous islands such as Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan and more.
