Your survival guide to living in Pattaya Beach

Pattaya is the perfect spring board for travel in South East Asia.

Pattaya is located in the heart of South East Asia which is ideal for travel in Asia. A short weekend trip to Vietnam or Cambodia cost almost nothing these days. If you wanted to travel Asia on the cheap but still wanted a home base then renting a bare bones apartment in Pattaya might be just the ticket.

Also Jet lag can be a major inconvenience as it sometimes can take a week to get over it.
