Situated approximately 147km southeast of Bangkok, the seaside resort town of Pattaya is all about sand, surf and sun. However once night settles in, this tropical paradise transforms itself into a haven for some to give in to their hedonistic desires. Don’t let its party reputation fool you though, as Pattaya is home to 22 convention centres, 45 unique venues and 395 hotels designed with the country’s distinct culture in mind. For larger events the Ambassador City Jomtien Hotel & Convention Centre, Eastern National Sports Centre and Pattaya Exhibition and Convention Hall can be combined into a single fully-functional business events space, amounting to over 6,500m2 in size. Group activities which delegates can engage in when meeting in Pattaya include hot air balloon riding, squid fishing and diving.
