Pattaya is a city in Thailand that is popular as a beach resort with tourists and expatriates. This city lies on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand, approximately 130 km southeast of Bangkok.  Pattaya City is a self-governing unit which covers Tambon Nong Prue and Na Kluea and parts of Huai Yai and Nong Pla Lai.

The City can be found in the heavily industrial Eastern Seaboard zone together with Si Racha, Chonburi, and Laem Chabang. Once a fishing town, Pattaya first boomed during the Vietnam War and developed into a seaside destination for families. Since then foreign tourism to Thailand has been increasing with 14.5 million visitors in 2007.

Sights

Different theme parks and zoos can be found in Pattaya such as the Elephant Village, where training demonstrations and ancient re-enactments are presented daily. The Sri Racha Tiger Zoo shows alligators, tigers, and other animals daily. Other attractions include The Pattaya Crocodile Farm, Pattaya Park Beach, Resort Water Park, Funny Land Amusement Park, Million Years Stone Park, and the Siriporn Orchid Farm.

Between South Pattaya and Jomtien Beach is a small hill, Khao PhraTamnak that provides a panoramic view of Pattaya and its crescent bay. On top of this hill, the Wat Khao Phra Bat, a temple, and the monument of Kromluang Chomphonkhetudomsak, the “founding father” of the modern Thai navy.  Still another sight is the Underwater World, an aquarium with a collection of marine species in the Gulf of Thailand including sharks and stingrays.

Wat Yanasangwararam Woramahawihan is a temple built in 1976 for Somdet Phra Yanasangwon, the present Supreme Patriarch. Within the complex of the temple are a replica of the Buddha’s footprint and a huge Chedi which contains the relics of the Lord Buddha.

Thepprasit market is the busiest and biggest market in Pattaya. The market at Thepprasit Road attracts locals and tourists and is open at night every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. In the market are pets for sale, many Thai food stalls offering local specialities like fried scorpions and bugs, and branded clothes, shoes, and electronic goods.

Festivals and other Activities

Chinese New Year is normally observed within late January to early February. This is so because it is a lunar new year the people are celebrating with dragon parades, fireworks, and lion dances.

In music, the Pattaya International Music Festival is held annually in the month of March. It allures huge crowds to the different performance stages along Bali Hai Pier and Beach Road, where international and Thai artists present varied music styles. The Pattaya Songkran festival or Wan Lai in local language, happens in mid April every year. It lasts for several days with the water throwing, the beauty pageants, cultural shows, musical performances, fireworks, and water sports competition. Another musical attraction is the Pattaya Classical Guitar Festival, on the last weekend of October each year which brings more tourists to Pattaya.

Other adrenaline rush activities include a weeklong sailing event, Top of the Gulf Regatta which is usually held at the end of April and start of May. The Pattaya Marathon, features several race categories and is held in July.  Finally, the Burapa Pattaya Bike Week is Thailand’s biggest motorcycle event held in Pattaya every February, attracting motorcycle enthusiasts from all over Southeast Asia and abroad.

Travelling to Pattaya with a companion is best, considering the many sights and festivals that need to be shared and appreciated.  It will surely be a colourful and festive journey.

Most Romantic Restaurants for Lovers around the World http://toursfor2.com/most-romantic-restaurants-for-lovers-around-the-world/ http://toursfor2.com/most-romantic-restaurants-for-lovers-around-the-world/#comments Mon, 06 May 2013 02:49:35 +0000 http://toursfor2.com/?p=1277 When dining with your special someone, it is but natural that you would want everything to be perfect – that is, an equilibrium between good food, romantic ambience and of course a scenic view – all mixing together in a harmonious blend.

When dining with your special someone, it is but natural that you would want everything to be perfect – that is, an equilibrium between good food, romantic ambience and of course a scenic view – all mixing together in a harmonious blend. Looking for such a place may seem challenging, but the list below should give you an idea about where to start looking.

Eagle’s Eye Restaurant

The weather in this mountain top resort may be chilly, but that should be of no worry as there is enough warmth that emanates from star-crossed lovers who choose to dine in this restaurant. The Eagle’s Eye Restaurant is one of the amenities of the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort which is located in British Columbia, Canada. Getting there requires a 15-minute ride on a gondola, which should be a good start to this romantic escapade. The restaurant itself is a nothing fancy, but rather one that has a rustic yet charming design of natural timber and gray stones with tall windows to ensure that guests have the best views of the snow-capped mountains while feasting on juicy Rocky Mountain Bison or fresh BC coho salmon.

Seaside Restaurant

Dining by the beach has got to be one of the most romantic dinner for two, and one that is offered by Seaside Restaurant in Warapura Resort in Thailand. Being located by the sea, the restaurant allows lovers to enjoy sumptuous seafood cuisines like lobsters in tamarind sauce or fried sea-bass in masaman sauce. Of course, other cuisines (both international and local) are served as well. Indulge in these wonderful foods as you enjoy the view of the lolling waves and swaying coconut trees, all visible in this open air restaurant of dark wood and white silky curtains. The restaurant also provides inhouse entertainment of bossa nova music and jazz to further enhance the romantic ambience of the place.

The Barbetta Garden

If gardens are your idea of a romantic dinner, then head on to New York, USA for this incredible garden restaurant – the Barbetta Garden. The restaurant has been in operation since 1906 and has served Piemontese cuisines like Fonduta, Carne Cruda, and their all time famous white truffles. Being one of the most picturesque restaurants in the area, the Barbetta Garden served as the filming venue for many Hollywood movies and TV series like The Departed and Sex in the City. Enjoy their mouth-watering dishes as you dine beside shady trees (some of which are over a hundred years old), a flowing fountain with cherubs,  and amidst the blossoms and sweet scents of jasmine, wisteria, magnolia and several others. In the owners own words, the Barbetta Garden leans towards being a grand country estate rather than a garden in the city.

Only a handful of other experiences can beat fine dining with the one you love in a beautiful restaurant with great food and equally great atmosphere. It may be pricey and extravagant, but seeing the smile and joy in your lover’s eyes makes every cent well-worth it.
