Did someone tell you that Pattaya is not a place for families with children? Do not believe “never”! Of course, the center of the resort with the well-known Walking street, like a magnet, attracts young people and exotic lovers of all kinds.
But the amazing thing is that at the same time it seems that here, in Pattaya, they only thought about how to ideally arrange a vacation for couples with babies.
Not only hotels, but entire districts are created for a peaceful holiday with the whole family – marvelous parks, flowering gardens, playgrounds for games, water parks, entertainment venues and swimming pools.
It is important to choose the right hotel location for children, and then your family trip to the ancient mysterious Siam will become fabulous. The best option is to take a hotel not in the very center of the resort, where the nightlife is too violent, but on the outskirts, where there is entertainment, shopping, and cafes with restaurants, but much quieter, calmer and safer.
Many are disappointed by the sea in Pattaya – not as azure as in Phuket. And in order to reduce all disappointments to a minimum, we choose beaches not in the center – on the outskirts the sea is much clearer and cleaner, and the coast is not crammed with “reckless” active youth.
The seasoned Asian lover will advise you to choose a special 4 or 5 star hotel for families. This will solve many issues at once, since in such hotels in Thailand everything is already provided – and baby food, and a private beach, entertainment and nannies, gyms, bars and cinemas. Choose a hotel with European adapted cuisine, obligatory playgrounds, gardens, clubs and swimming pools. Not everyone likes swimming in the sea with strong excitement and heat, and a pool in the lacy shade of tropical trees will be necessary, especially for little ones.
Of course, you can take a ferry to Koh Lan and enjoy the white sand and turquoise waves. The path is short, but it is advisable to take into account that the local snow-white sandy beaches will be quite crowded due to the popularity of the place.
Pattaya has a bunch of clean, cozy sandy beaches, where the bright sun will warm the little tourists, the sea air will heal, the soft sand will give the legs a feeling of serenity, and the gentle sea will wash away all the diseases of the cold north. But not only by the sea, guests, small and large, will find entertainment in the form of scooters, pills, catamarans, bananas and cheerful African braids. Here, in general, it seems, all possible joys are concentrated, which turn a vacation with children into an exciting adventure. In a separate article, we talk about all the possible popular excursions for children in Pattaya.
There should be no problems with nutrition for a child in Pattaya. This question is absolutely thought out in hotels. The resort has been chosen by many tourists – both visitors and locals.
Nightly fun on the main street of adult pleasures, Walking Street, begins quite early – from seven in the evening. It is not at all necessary to walk there with children. You can retire with the guys for the whole evening in a family restaurant or stay in a hotel. It is here that the meaning lies in choosing such a hotel where you can have fun all evening and not get bored for a minute, without even going to leave the territory.
