Pattaya (Thailand)

Pattaya (Thai language พัทยา) is a city in Thailand, located along the Gulf of Thailand, southeast of Bangkok in Chonburi province. Is the largest tourism centers in Thailand.

Originally a small fishing village of Pattaya only until the 1960's, American troops from their AU headquarters in U Ta Pao, Rayong Province found this area to R & R. The city is growing rapidly, largely because of go go bars and other nightlife. When American soldiers left the area after the Vietnam War, the city fell into the puddle of crisis, but with the rise of mass tourism, especially from the European city tourism business is growing again. In 2001 more than 24,000 hotel rooms available in Pattaya. Although sex tourism is still quite striking in Pattaya, all inclusive tourism is now preparing the bulk of tourism.
