Rent a Car Club can help you get to get around cheap!
Renting a car in thailand just got alot easier so if you want to go to a beach city that is not too faraway from the capital city Bangkok, you have two choices that you can choose from. One of the choices is Hua Hin, which is around 200 km away from Bangkok. Your second option is Pattaya, and the travelling distance from Bangkok is at 150 km. Although they are both located on the Gulf of Thailand, there is a great distance between the two cities. From Bangkok, to go to these two cities you need to head to the opposite directions, so you go south-west if you want to go to Hua Hin, and you go south-east if you want to reach Pattaya. Therefore, it is not a surprise that both cities have their own distinctive charms, yet both are also equally great tourist attractions and will certainly be worth your time.
Hua Hin is considered to be a beach city that is ideal for family trips. The Klai Kangwon Palace (literally translates into English as “Far from Worries”) is a summer palace for the current royal family. It is not open for public visits, yet from just the outside, you can already get a glimpse of its serenity. With the palace standing firmly in this city, it can be taken as a symbol and representation of this city’s image. Thus, compared to Pattaya, it seems that this city moves at a slower and calmer pace. This character of the city is also reflected in the lifestyle that it offers to its visitors. Hence, there are a lot of very nice and proper restaurants that have been passed down from generation to generation where you can have a taste of authentic Thai-style seafood dishes. There are also night markets like the Hua Hin Night Market or the Cicada Market where you can both shop for hand-made commodities and try out Thai street foods at the same time. So if you are looking for a more family-friendly beach city to visit, Hua Hin will be your destination.
Pattaya, on the other hand, is a city that is more adventurous, and would be perfect for people who love to enjoy some fun at parties and night clubs. The fun and daring character of this city is evident as soon as the sun sets. The city comes alive at night with numerous clubs, bars, massage parlours, discos, not to mention the Pattaya Walking Street that is a must-visit place in Pattaya. There are also of course the impressive and mind-blowing ladyboy shows hosted under Tiffany’s Show, Colosseum Show, and Alcazar Cabaret Show. Apart from the night-life, Pattaya is defenitely not short of daytime activities. You can visit Ripley’s Believe It of Not Museum, Nong Nooch Tropical Garden, Underwater World, or even go to nearby islands to enjoy clear blue skies and waters. With no doubt, Pattaya is certainly a city of entertainment and is one of the places in Thailand that you should not miss.
