Not only is one of the world's most popular beach resorts, it is also one of the most sought after places to settle in as an alternative to the dull climates and environments of many western countries. Bangkok's brand new Suvarnambumhi airport is just 60 minutes along the expressways, and if you want to avoid this last 60 minute journey, it even has its own airport - U-Tapao -with scheduled domestic flights taking off here for Samui and Phuket too if ever you want a quick change of scenery.
A very large resident western contingent ensures the shops and malls are stocked with everything you would wish for from home and there are plenty of foreign owned businesses which speak your language; it also provides you with ample opportunity for making it a really exotic home-from-home with plenty of activities and lots of new friends.
But Pattaya is not only about the bustle of one of the world's busiest beaches - far from it. It is surrounded by dozens of charming oases of expat neighbourhoods and secluded residences steeped in traditional Thai surrounding just a few minutes from the city in the luscious jungles and hills of Jomtien - where privacy and calm surroundings reign supreme.
The region may be a playground for the rich and not so famous, but everyone can enjoy a permanent slice of the good life here - Pattaya and Jomtien may be expensive compared to the rest of the country, but compared to Nice, Cannes, Monte Carlo, Miami and Marbella, it's still one heck of a bargain!
From as little as $50,000 to the ultimate in sheer unadulterated luxury for $1,000,000, you can have condos, houses with pools or an extensive private paradise - whatever your purse can purchase.
