Pattaya islands review
Pattaya might have started as a sleepy fishing village, but it woke into full city potential after the Vietnam war. Welcoming American veterans slowly, but inevitably, this led to the expansion of the small village into a cosmopolitan Pattaya City, boasting floating markets, glamorous shopping, gourmet dining, and one of the best nightlife scenes in all of Thailand. Blessed with a wide array of beaches and befitting parties, the full range of tourists and locals from different backgrounds contribute to this intriguing Thai holiday destination today.
If you are in Pattaya and wish to escape the frantic crowds, noise, debauchery, and overcrowding, you do not need to go far. Just a few kilometers away from the extravagant coastal city of Pattaya, there is a myriad of Pattaya Islands waiting for you. Be prepared to discover the hidden tropical beauty, swim in clear waters, and unwind on pristine beaches that you cannot find in Pattaya City. And those who want to spend more time exploring the beauty of nearby islands may opt for the largest of Pattaya Islands at Koh Larn (Coral Island), instead of vacationing in Pattaya City itself.
Seven islands around Pattaya are the most popular getaways for island-hopping day trips. From bathing on softest sands, snorkeling coral reefs, diving with seahorses of visiting island monkeys – Pattaya Islands Tour can have it all. These include the most famous island Koh Larn (Coral Island), Koh Phai (Bamboo Island), Koh Ped (Monkey Island), divers-friendly Koh Rin, Koh Sak (Horseshoe Island), and the most beautiful Khram Noi and Khram Yai islands.
