For the interested, there are multiple Thailand Pattaya Nightlife packages and tours to choose from. For those who prefer to travel alone, the city offers enough budget and luxurious, naughty and nice options on which one can save or splurge.
1. Walking Street
When the sun sets the wild and free of Pattaya come alive on the neon-drenched strip called the Walking Street that stretches between Soi 13 - 16. The Walking Street is shut to traffic in the evening as people throng to the streets and take to the glamourous nightlife of Pattaya. The booze is free-flowing and the revelry is one like you’d never have witnessed anywhere before.
2. Cabaret Shows
Pattaya has some of the best cabaret shows in the world. The ladyboy entertainers delight audiences with their performances, all of which are laden with singing, dancing, acrobats (sometimes), glitz and tons of glamour. The Tiffany’s Cabaret Show and the Alcazar Cabaret Show are among the best in town. When in Pattaya, make it a point to see at least one cabaret performance.
The whole Bangkok Pattaya Nightlife experience is incomplete without shopping. Pattaya boasts of many night flea markets and shopping centres in Thailand that stay open all-night and/or for a major part of the night. If you want to skip the crowds and shop till you drop with little or no interruption, then shop in Pattaya at night. Clothes, bags, shoes, accessories – you name and you’ll get it.
4. Muay Thai
For those who seek thrill in action, then a visit to a Muay Thai game when in Pattaya is a must. Muay Thai literally translates to Thai Boxing and is one of the oldest sports in Thailand. Muay Thai games are high on adrenaline, shouting, betting and Rocky type/style moments. This is what makes the games a must-visit for boys, actually.
