Pattaya History

Pattaya was originally a small, fishing village until the 1960s, when US servicemen spent their R&R there during the Vietnam war. While Pattaya has a bit of a reputation preceding it, the Thailand authorities and business community are trying to make it more family-friendly. This includes the newly opened Nong Nooch Paradise Garden & Resort, golf courses, and many newly-opened upscale hotels.

Pattaya is approximately 2 hours drive away from Thailand's capital city, Bangkok. It is approximately a 30 minutes drive from Laem Chabang, where most US Navy ships moor.
