Everything you need to know about Pattaya, Thailand

However, since 1980, it has been one of the most visited destinations in Thailand. It is famous for its beaches, high-end resorts, 24-hour clubs and nightlife, which includes cabaret shows and even Thai boxing. Here is everything you need to know about Pattaya to make your trip one of its kind!

Best time in the year to visit Pattaya

Everyone visits Thailand for its tropical climate. It is warm all year round. But some months have heavy rainfall while others are way too hot. So, what is the best time to visit Pattaya, Thailand to experience the best it has to offer?
The peak tourist season in Pattya is November to March. It is neither hot nor cold. The weather is perfect for water sports as well as nightly strolls on the beach. However, these months are very crowded and you will have to wait in queues for everything, be it for entering a nightclub or parasailing in the water. If you want to visit Pattaya when it is less crowded, you can come in the rest of months as well.
March to June is hot, the hottest all year round. If you do not mind the heat, you can visit Pattaya and enjoy it without dealing with crowds. July to October and early November are rainfall months. It can be difficult to visit the tourist destinations. However, if you are looking for a quiet holiday without any tourists, this is the time. It does not rain cats and dogs all day every day. You will see some pleasant days in between, and you can get out and explore the island.
