If you like food, you have come to the right place - there are lots of restaurants in the area.

You will find local seafood restaurants, offering a 3 course meal with freshly caught seafood delicacies at the price of what you pay for a starter in many other countries.

Would you like to eat something else, there is a wide selection of international restaurants: Scandinavian, Italian, French, German, Russian, Japanese and Chinese just to name a few.

In other words, there is something to suit all needs and tastes.

For those who like to shop, there is a lot to explore.

Everything from the local night markets to the modern department stores. It is all here, and the pricing is low, if you compare with abroad. You can find good bargains at the markets, but be aware, all that glitters, is not gold.

You will find designer clothes at low prices in the big shopping centers such as Central Festival, Royal Garden and Mike Shopping Mall.

Should this not be enough, then the capital Bangkok is only 1.5 hour drive away.

There are courses to suit everyone, high and low handicappers.

We have seen a large number of people who have settled here for being able to play golf all year many of them have also gained membership in one of the golf clubs down here.

It works like this: you buy a share in the club, which can later be sold again.

Others choose to become a member of the Pattaya Sports Club and obtain special rates on green fees on most courses.

All green fees includes Caddy. Golf cars can be rented at a price of about 450 THB.
