However, the many repeat visitors to Pattaya can justifiably say that the resort City of Pattaya has a great location, is easy to get around with undoubtedly the best public transport system with the Baht buss hop on hop off system with a cost of only 10 baht anywhere, These repeat visitors general end up purchasing holiday homes or residential property house or condominium. http://realestatespecialiststhailand.com/for-sale/house-for-sale/premium-house-hs1247.html

In the opposite direction you will come to Naklua Wongamat and North Pattaya
The area of Naklua and north Pattaya is very popular with German and Scandinavian visitors. There are plenty of bars and restaurants, but the entertainment isn’t as full-on as it can be in South or Central Pattaya. The further north you head into Naklua, the more it has the appeal of a more traditional Thailand town. The market and fishing boats are places where few tourists tend to go, but are well worth a visit to experience real Thai culture, Wongamat has many high class hotels and Luxury Condominiums for sale compared to the rest of the world beach front condos are still relatively inexpensive http://realestatespecialiststhailand.com/for-sale/condo-for-sale/club-royal-condo-cs1401.html
