Pattaya, located an hour and a half away from the capital city Bangkok, is a beach city which attracts many foreign visitors, not only an incredible night life but also the beaches that seem to be busy all day.
The Sanctuary of Truth is a wooden carved sculpture whose decoration reflects the ancient vision of earth. It was awarded one of the Unseen in Thailand tourist attractions. I find this place is really amazing even though the admission was a wee bit pricey (฿500/adult) as this city’s living cost is higher than other cities.
My visit to the Sanctuary of Truth was a few weeks ago during home visit in Thailand. The weather was lovely as it was not too humid compared to where I live in Japan. I came here with my best friend from high school and my mother who kindly sacrificed her Saturday to give us a lift here, thanks mum! One thing I would recommend is to not to wear shorts as you have to hire for a ฿200 skirt to cover your sexy legs, you get your money back once you return the skirt.
There are plenty of activities at varied fares to do at this place such as having a look inside the sanctuary, riding the all-terrain vehicles, riding the elephants and much more!
From Bangkok to Pattaya
There are number of ways to get to Pattaya. The easiest way is to take a cab which costs around ฿1,050 plus a toll way fee ฿ุ60 but you have more chances to be ripped off! Make sure to negotiate the prices with the driver first.
You can get on the ‘RungRueng’ coaches from both Ekamai and Mo Chit stations. Buses generally depart every 30-40 minutes. The coaches leaving from Ekamai operate from 05.40 AM – 9.00 PM while coaches from Mo Chit operate at the same time until an hour earlier. Both bus stations can be easily reached by BTS sky train.
Also, you can take buses from international(Suvarnabhimi) airport to Pattaya.
Vans depart every 15 minutes from the Victory Monument(BTS sky train station) everyday from 05.30 AM-9.30 PM. Vans are comfortable and faster than coaches.
Tiffany ‘s Show is a Must!
Tiffany’s show is a famous cabaret show performed by over 100 talented transvestites and transgenders only in Pattaya city. It has been a tourist famous spot for over two decades.
The shows run 18.00, 19.30, and 21.00 everyday. If you want to see their performance, make sure to book the tickets in advance for cheaper prices.
