Where is a Good Place to Stay in Pattaya?
This depends on where you are going to work and your lifestyle. If you are retired, you might love to stay in quiet area like in East Pattaya. The air is fresh with less pollution. However if you like beaches and would like to take advantage of the ocean breezes, North Pattaya, Central Pattaya, South Pattaya, Naklua, Pratumnak, and Jomtien are great locations.
If you would like to stay near the city and the beach in a Peaceful Atmosphere, Pratumnak is the ideal area we are talking about. Pratumnak is next to Pattaya city. It is between Jomtien, Cosy beach and Pattaya beach. You can enjoy three beautiful beaches and have a healthy life in the green zone.
Valuable Tips to Consider for Relocation
First, you should decide where to stay. If you like the beach, it is good that you stay in Jomtien, Pratumnak, Pattaya and Naklua. Pratumnak is sought after since it is in a quiet area with natural atmosphere on the hill, and it is between three beautiful beaches: Pattaya beach, Cosy Beach, and Jomtien beach. East Pattaya is more quiet and peaceful but a little bit far away from facilities. After that, plan for your basic routine. Where to buy good food? Laundry service and convenience stores? The best way is to get some advice from your friends, from online channels, or some agencies that are willing to assist you with this. You can contact The Cube Pattaya for more information.
