Pattaya Beach is divided into three main areas. North Pattaya is the most peaceful beach of the three. Lined along the beach are top quality hotels and resorts, restaurants, bars, shops, department stores, gradually giving way to a less developed more tranquil area. Central Pattaya represents what is called ‘the entertainment hub’, where all discotheques, beer bars, and naughty nightlife can be found.

South Pattaya, the most bustling area, is also called Walking Street as it is closed for traffic from 19.00 to midnight. The street is crowded with numerous shops ranging from tailor shops, clothing shops, sport equipment shops, jewellery shops and souvenir shops. Bars are densely located here along with restaurants close to the beach.
