3. Pattaya Walking Street
Expect hoards of tourist during weekends too. But security here is amazing as there are many Thai policemen seen patrolling the area. From stylish and catchy seafood restaurants, live music bars, cabaret shows, gogo bars, clubs, discos, shopping and even an Elvis Show. Read my previous review on Pattaya Walking Street.
4. Koh Larn Island in Pattaya, Thailand
If you want to explore the island, you can do so on foot as there are temples and shops in the village area. Usually tourist come here to utilize the main beaches as there are about 8 beaches throughout Koh Larn. The main beach where the ferry drops you off is usually packed with tourist so if you like it less crowded, it is best to take a local taxi to a more secluded beach around the island. See more pictures of Koh Larn on my Facebook Album.

For beach lovers, there is the main Pattaya Beach across the street where you can rent a deck chair and just bake in the sun. For a great view, you can take a taxi to the Pattaya Bay LookOut Point where you can see the entire bay area.
