What To See on Jomtien Beach Pattaya
If you are ready to get off the sand, there’s plenty to be done in Jomtien Beach.
From a promontory with a spectacular view to a crocodile farm, there is plenty to keep visitors entertained—and you don’t have to look far.
To help navigate the options, here are seven top attractions in Jomtien Beach.
The 240-meter tower at Pattaya Park, with its three revolving restaurants, is a landmark on Jomtien Beach. Its 360-degree panorama offers a spectacular view, and the beach out front is more secluded than the rest of Jomtien.
Siriporn Orchid Farm
All manner of orchids are on display at Siriporn Orchid Farm, from escosandas and pompadours to catteleyas, daedrovium and vandas. Flowers are also for sale.
The Million Years Stone Park & Crocodile Farm
Check out 200-year-old Thai bonsai trees; fossilized plants more than a million years old; and animals from albino bears to crocodiles at this popular attraction. Shows and animal performances happen throughout the day, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Khao Pattaya View Point
Perhaps the best local view of Pattaya’s bay—day or night—the view point does get crowded by tour busses. But you can wait them out for a quieter and more secluded experience.
Pattaya Floating Market
Arrayed on a wooden boardwalk, the floating market has more than 100 shops offering crafts, snacks and souvenirs. Each of the market’s four sections sell wares from a different part of Thailand: north, northeast, central and south. Visitors can hire a four-person boat for 30 minutes.
Pattaya Elephant Village
Established in the 1970s as a refuge for working elephants, Pattaya’s Elephant Village is a great place to watch the mahouts demonstrate training and bathing. There are many shows to choose from, including a victory drum ceremony (Glong Sabad Chai) that includes a war elephant.
Underwater World Pattaya
Underwater World Pattaya is one of the biggest and most modern in all of Asia, with more than 200 species housed in an underground aqua tunnel. Visitors can take advantage of the touch pool, and stroll through the facilities three zones: shark and ray, coral reefs and the Giant Siam.
