Where to Shop in Pattaya
There are plenty of shopping options in Pattaya Thailand, from tailor shops that will create custom-made clothing to a floating market with more than 100 stores.
To help sort it all out, here are seven places guaranteed to provide fun and interesting shopping experiences.
While it is a party zone by night, Walking Street is open for business during the daytime, with plenty of stores offering souvenirs, jewelry and paintings. There are also a number of tailors that make affordable custom clothing. Be wary of fast delivery times and overly-cheap prices. Quality tailoring takes time.
Pattaya Floating Market
Arrayed on a wooden boardwalk, the floating market has more than 100 shops offering crafts, snacks and souvenirs.
The Avenue Pattaya
Located on Pattaya Second Road, this enclave caters to the young and hip—not unlike Bangkok’s J Avenue. You’ll find Starbucks and Au Bon Pain here, along with brands like Adidas and Puma. There’s an eight-screen movie complex. And check out Blu-O, a bowling and karaoke club.
Central Festival Pattaya Beach
Another mainstream experience, with more than 200 brand-name shops like DKNY, Guess and Diesel. There’s also a cinema, an ice-skating rink, a supermarket and plenty of restaurants.
Royal Garden Plaza Pattaya
It’s hard to miss this shopping center. There’s a large red airplane sticking out of the top. Inside is a mix of chain stores, boutiques, a food court and a cinema. There’s also a Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum.
Pattaya’s weekend market, located on Thepprasit Street, has more than 500 stalls with food and trinkets of all kinds.
Outlet Mall Pattaya
This mall offers more than 200 stores, with brands like Samsonite, Warner Brothers, Levis, Lacoste and many more. There’s also a major golfing supply shop.
