Pattaya City Expats
Guide for Living or Longstays in Pattaya
Pattaya is very popular as a retirement destination for many Westerners. So much so that there is an extensive support network of expatriates living, working, or enjoying retirement in Pattaya City. For the retired
or pensioners who needs a regular fix of western food and shopping, Pattaya is the place. For the golfer, it's heaven. Pattaya City is possibly the most enigmatic city in Thailand. It has been described as a city of sin by some, a beach paradise by others. Pattaya has beaches, golf courses, excellent sports clubs, a lighted lawn bowling greens, scuba diving, and plenty of social activity. Pattaya also has more "farangs" per square meter than any other Thailand city, so yes it is retirement territory.
There are hundreds of hotels and guest houses of all types, sizes, locations, quality, and price. Monthly rentals can be an excellent option. Staying a long time? We suggest furnished serviced apartments.
