Family-friendly things to do along Pattaya Beach Road (2019)

Tanutam Thawan



Drive out of Suvarnabhumi Airport and turn right, instead of left and going to Bangkok. And in an easy two hour drive you’ll arrive in the seaside resort of Pattaya, one of the worlds most famous, or infamous, playgrounds.

Gone are the days where Pattaya is the one-dimensional resort town. In the recent years, it has increasingly evolved into a family-friendly total resort, with attractions and restaurants for the young and old. But it hasn’t entirely lost its allure for those seeking a little red light titilation – just head down to Walking Street any night of the week.

Pattaya Beach Road has now become a much improved international boardwalk. With just a line of palm trees away from the shore, you can walk down the paved promenade and find many things to do in the day, before it transforms into its bustling nightlife as the sun sets.

Here are five things to do along Pattaya’s Beach Road with your family and friends. Not a bar girl in sight!

Art in Paradise, Pattaya

This interactive art museum is where you can interact, touch and take pictures with three-dimensional optical illusion artworks that are displayed on the walls and floors. With several exhibits with different themes such as Underwater World, Wildlife and Dinosaur, it’s great fun with friends and family.

There are different themes such as Underwater World, Wildlife and Dinosaur to explore.
Before you visit, we’ve got some tips for you to make the best of your time there.

Tip #1: Visit on a weekday if you can because the crowds swell up on the weekends unless you’re prepared to wait a long time to take photos.

Tip #2: You have to take off your shoes in the museum (a plastic bag is provided) to protect the paintings from scratch marks. Bring a shoulder bag to carry your shoes so you have both hands free to go crazy with photo taking.

Tip #3: They’re optical illusions. Make sure you position yourself and your camera in the right direction to capture the right perspectives.
