Travel For Particular Reasons – Pattaya 0

Posted on December 01, 2010 by dorisch

It may seem strange but I know of some people who travel to search for something particular. Some travel to seek for health products and some for the sake of beauty.

A friend of mine loves to travel to Thailand for the cheaper beauty products. And she often told me about the natural remedies by the Thai locals. She just visited Pattaya and shared some of her stories on her quest for anti aging products. Pattayas main attractions are its beaches. Pattaya Beach stretches out along the central city close to shopping, hotels and bars. The section of beach from Central Road (Pattaya Klang) south to the harbor is adjacent to the core of Pattaya’s abundant nightlife area, hence it is less family-oriented than the North Pattaya, Na Klua and Jomtien beaches.

Pattaya is now a city in its own right, with its own mayor and its own administration. This is not all due to tourism. The government development programmed for the Eastern Seaboard has transformed the region, and this rapid industrial and commercial expansion has led to many expatriates coming to live in the area. There is a new deep-sea port at Laem Chabang, 20 km north of Pattaya with a vast industrial estate, and another development zone at Map Ta Phut near Rayong to the south. Pattaya city is well located to be a major business centre serving these two giant industrial communities. There are five international schools and four international hospital in the area.
